What do studio apts in elevator bldgs in Tuckahoe or Crestwood or even Eastchester be? Do they(studios) even exist in that area? if they do, who is the governing board, the county, town or villages?

I now pay $825 for a studio in a decent, well kept rent stabilized building in central/north Riverdale but I am starting to think about that area of Westchester. My car insurance would more than 50% less than what i pay in Riverdale. The village square area of Tuckahoe seems to look better and better each time i pass through although sometimes i have inferred from others that the area may have it's problems. I see an apt bldg, in fact several on the crest of the hill where Columbus Avenue becomes Sagamore Rd going down to Bronxville and I see one or two around route 22 and Mill Rd in Eastchester. in fact what about North Avenue in New Rochelle near the Starbucks, any studio rentals in that area, or would these areas all be out of my price range? I was just visiting in that area last weekend and i started thinking about the idea of moving. How is parking in those areas? I actually have a lot of free parking in the immediate area where i live. Would that exist in Tuckahoe, Crestwood, Eastchester?

Don't know much about the cost of rents in the area because I own but I will say that the area around Tuckahoe station is on the rise. Although the general area doesn't look like much on the surface, you will see a number of well-heeled visitors parking and looking to eat in a quiet spot.

A new upscale restaurant just opened - The Taphouse - and it's always packed whenever I drive by around dinnertime. Also the Starbucks is about a year or so young and is built inside the renovated train station so it is in a beautiful architectural setting. I drive through that busy intersection everyday and have to say I'm happy to see that area on the upswing. Also there's an open farmers market during the weekend mornings.

I would look to rent south of that main intersection (toward Bronxville's border) instead of north where you have low-income project housing.
Crestwood about 1 mile straight up north is also a sweet area to visit.

As far as Tuckahoe's "problems" go - about 6 months ago, there was a general community announcement but mainly for the schools informing that a sexual predator who had finished serving his sentence was now residing in Tuckahoe although not within "x" distance of a school or playground. But what this means to parents is that they need to be vigilant with their kids because this individual is free to travel/drive.

Parking-wise you will have to pay: 25 cents/24 min or somthing like that but after 6 PM it is free. There are some 2 and 4 hour parking spots on the street away from the immediate center of that area but don't count on parking there while you ride the train. Parking enforcement is on the prowl during the day.

I don't blame you for wanting to move. Riverdale looks nice, but it has to be one of the most boring communities in the area.

Most of the nice apartment buildings in the Eastchester area are coops. So you should also consider renting in 2-family and 3-family houses.

Try Craig's List. If you are going to be here for 3-4 years or more maybe you should consider a co-op.

All the best!
