In New Rochelle you could live at Avalon on the Sound East, with a 4-5 minute walk to the train station. The New Rochelle Public Library is across the street, a CVS one block away, Stop and Shop four blocks away. New Roc has movie theaters and downtown New Rochelle has numerous interesting restaurants. Give it a look.

also direct bus service to LI/queens and upstate NY(albany and ulster county) and rockland also non stop) trailwaysny.com for schedules.

However you need to time it right. heck you can even work in li with that schedule inspite impracticality.

This seems like a stupid idea. Why don't you move to Brooklyn or Queens? You can't live in suburbia without a car. Period. Do you even know people here? Can you share your cost of living comparisons? I can't imagine commuting in is going to be cheaper, once you factor in the wasted time. Just live in a smaller apt, or get a roommate.

Commutes from lower Westchester, especially if you work in midtown, are shorter than from large areas of both Queens and Brooklyn. Also, you're not paying 3.5% of your income to NYC resident tax. In addition "suburbia" is no more the same than "big cities" are all the same. Some suburbs are all houses, no sidewalks and no stores, some have no public tranpsort. Others are built around railroad stations and have walkable downtowns (like Larchmont for example). It may or may not work for the OP, but your blanket dismissal is just ignorant.
