Hello, and thank you for the time you are talking the time to read my post, I currently live in Forest Hills, Queens, but due to my work, close to Tarrytown, my husband and I are considering the possibility of moving to lower westchester, we have consider places like dobbs ferry, tarrytown, Irvington, Hartsdale, Mamaroneck, Harrison, bronxville and white plains. We need to be close to the metro north train station because my husband commutes to manhattan everyday, my biggest problem is that i am not clear if we can park our cars in the street, or how good or bad is the parking in this areas. As we live in Forest Hills, Queens, we are quite used to the bad parking, but since we live here ( 5 years) we have managed the lack of parking, but I don't know if we can pull that off in those areas of westchester, can you guys tell me how is the parking situation in those towns?

If you get a house w/ garage that is walking distance to the train, you should have no problem with parking. Look at Dobbs Ferry, Pleasantville, Mamaroneck and Tarrytown.

I didn't realize you were looking at apartment buildings. That could be tough if you had to park in the streets. Why not a house with garage?

It completely depends on the apartments you are looking at. Some have parking included, some don't. For the ones that don't, it will depend on the specific neighborhood. The parking isn't as bad as being the city for the most part, but some places can be more difficult than others.

I would presume that many of the villages would limit the areas where people can park in the streets.

There are great buildings with parking that also also walking distance to the train in Fleetwood and Bronxville PO/Yonkers too. Don't let the stigma of Mt Vernon or Yonkers spook ya. The areas around the train in particular are great for commuters and offer a safe, friendly environment to live. Not to mention super affordable.
