The prices of houses in Southern Yonkers, especially towards Woodlawn are extremely low in comparison to the rest of Westchester. That would probably be the main reason to move there. So in Bronxville/Scarsdale/Tuckahoe you'd pay probably at least $700k/$750k for a 3br, whereas the same house would only cost $450-$500k in Yonkers.

Queens county may be a good place for you. The best areas are Bayside and Little Neck. Both have good schools and you can find a condo in your price range. Both areas have close shopping and close access to the Long Island rail road which would take you to midtown in about 30 min. You may also want to look in Great Neck which is just over the boarder of Queens into Nassau county. Once again, great schools and shopping with easy access to the train. Bayside and Little neck has a growing Asian population but there are many different people living in NY, it's a big big melting pot.

Yeah but the houses in those areas Bayside/Little Neck go for well over a million dollars. If you have enough money to live out there, why not just move to Scarsdale or Bronxville?

The poster said they are open to townhomes, there are a lot of co-ops in Bayside and Little Neck that are under 500K. I know townhomes and co-ops are not the same, but close and you can get something nice for under 500K.

AndreaII,

I am moving from the DC metro area in Maryland. Actually right between Baltimore and Washington. I'm used to bad commutes here, but it sounds worse there. my other worry is that if my husband works until 2 a.m., he may want to drive in. how much is parking?

Parking prices vary depending on where in the city he is located but it is expensive everywhere. Price also depends on what hour of the day you come in anbd how long you leave your car in the lot.

I park in a garage on 58th and 8th and if I get in before 10:00 Am and stay for less than 12 hours, it costs $16/day.

However, one time I came it at 8 and left at 9 and I had to pay $48. Another time I got in at 10:01 and left at 5:30 and it was $40.

Also NYC traffic is a nightmare (trust me I drive in every day). It may not be as bad during non-rush hour but be prepared to sit in traffic for an hour or more.
