Dana, you should try searching craigslist or a similar website. This isn't really the place for renters to find apartments.

Also, I'm not sure what part of the county you're looking at, but you should know (if you haven't figured it out already) that Westchester is one of the most expensive counties in the country, and it may be difficult for you to find a landlord that takes section 8 in most parts of the county.

Yeah in Westchester if the owner is accepting Section 8 you can pretty much rest assured that the building or neighborhood are not the best.

Try Peekskill, Yonkers, or Mt. Vernon. These are the more populated, cheaper, less suburban places in Westchester that are more likely to accept Section 8. I don't know much about Section 8, but I know that it does exist here in Westchester...but it's not very common. Have you considered the Bronx? There is a bee-line bus system that comes up from there if you don't drive, and if you do, it's a twenty minute drive into White Plains.
