All in all, those 3 areas don't have the best schools. However if you are tied to these areas, I would consider NE yonkers - esp the areas bordering Scarsdale and Bronxville/Tuckahoe.

In Mt. Vernon, Fleetwood and the area bordering Bronxville is nice and in New Rochelle, the area bordering Eastchester (Quaker Ridge) is nice.

Hello Everyone, all the questions and answers was helpful because I too is thinking about moving to the yonkers area, but I'm a bit hestitate because as of yet I don't have a vehicle. But I'm thinking of applying with a building management with property located at 330 Riverdale avenue Yonkers, NY 10705, 49 North Broadway and 220 Yonkers avenue (Parkledge apartment management). Are these locations decent for children and teens? I'm looking for low income which limits my options as well as not having a car and when I am fortunate to get a car my teen needs to be able to get around without me driving all the time. Also my teen is in college and I plan to return to college for my Master's in Psychology, law, forensic or substance abuse Counselor. Where are the colleges in Yonkers or should I be looking to move further in Westchester? Im baffled.

The is an area of New Rochelle called "Larchmont woods" which is really beautiful. Gorgeous neighborhood. It is very close to the town of Larchmont, which has the metro north if you needed it. Larchmont/Mamaroneck is a really nice town to be near.

Thank you Westchester, GT and Jyyanks I will look into Larchmont, Mamaroneck, Tuckahoe and other areas mentioned. Its funny I thought of the owner of a local business where I live now who told me she lived in yonkers and she recommended Tuckahoe but she did express that Tuckahoe runs a long way and at certain parts a car is needed. Does anyone currently live in neighborhoods mentioned that could possibly keep an eye out/share any info on apt I can apply for low income. Im seeking a 3 bedroom. Again thank you everyone all info is helpful.

You should start your own new thread instead of adding onto this one. You'll get better info.

Tuckahoe isn't really that large (assuming you're talking about the Village of Tuckahoe). On the eastern end, there's buses along White Plains Road, and obviously the western end has Metro-North (there's also the #8 bus to Yonkers). For local shopping, there's stores near the MNRR station, and also Eastchester Square.

I grew up in the Fleetwood/Bronxville area, my neighborhood was bordered by Ridgway St, Gramatan ave! Clinton Ave and Parkway West. That area was a great place for families. (Hopefully still is)

You just labeled two large cities with an all-encompassing blanket statement that couldn't be any more wrong. Yonkers has many nice neighborhoods and several affluent sections. MV also has some wonderful neighborhoods (Fleetwood).

This. The imaginary "dividing line" in Mt. Vernon is W 1st St. Stay north of this line and you're in a good neighborhood. The further north you go, the closer you are to wealthy Bronxville. I recently moved to the Fleetwood section of Mt. Vernon and it was a great decision.

Should you look at Mt. Vernon, be aware of a few things:
Property taxes here are very high for the price of the homes, which explains why there are so many foreclosures in MV.

The school district here is atrocious (especially the high school). Granted, none of the cities on your list provide top-notch schools, so this may not be a priority for you?

OP: what is your budget, if you don't mind me asking?

EDIT: wow, I just saw the date of the original posting... whoops!
