Hello all,

i am looking to purchase a co-op in westchester. i have considered the following areas, bronxville,mamaroneck,larchmont,harrison,hastings on hudson, and white plains. i would prefer somewhere close to the railroad preferably walking distance. What areas do you guys recommend would be the best for me to consider. i would like a nice quiet area with shopping not to far, i am not into the bar or club scene. i dont need to be near that if that helps. sorry for the long post and thank in advance for any advice you can give.

You should check Hartsdale. You can find a co-op on Hartsdale Ave that is walking distance to the train station. It should be quiet and shopping is only five minutes away on Central Ave or White Plains. Some people think Hartsdale schools are not that great so keep this into consideration if you have kids (it sounds you don't).

Oh yes, there have been floods in Mamaroneck and Harrison. I would not rule the area out for that reason-they are very nice towns. If considering further just make sure you have a safe place to park.

Just about any of the areas you're looking into would work for you, but I'd also add Pelham to the list. You might find something nice in Pelham, not too far from the train station. What sort of an area do you want? White Plains is a small city, with a much more urban feel than the rest of the areas that you're considering. The river towns are generally more laid back, but Larchmont and Bronxville downtown areas are more comprehensive, overall. Having a car makes it easy, however, since you can drive to any of the neighboring areas in a couple of minutes. You might also consider Eastchester, along Garth Road, which is close to Scarsdale for a nice co-op, and also Tuckahoe, also part of Eastchester, has some as well that are convenient to the train.

thanks for the reply once again, i would like to live close enough to the railroad to where i can walk. as far as settings go, i like the laid back setting, but i guess i would like the in between being laid back, but also not to far from a stores, resturants etc.

Why a co op.. why not a condo, in Croton on Hudson within walking distance to trains and or Jitney to trains.. I live there and love it.. Resort style living.. a marina and located on the Hudson River..
45 minutes to nyc, grand central.....worth the extra few minutes a day....
