The issue is being able to get a place to live that's either within walking distance of the train or getting a parking place at the train station. The latter could be a problem.

The length of the commute depends on where in Westchester you start.

And Park Avenue is long...Grand Central Station, where the trains arrive, is at 42nd St and Lexington/Park.

It depends where in Westchester. But the Metro North website will give you the train schedule for every station. Typically, from most stations in Westchester, you would be talking about 30-50 minutes to Grand Central. (Which puts you right at Park Ave).

Yes, there are apartments with parking, but it depends where. In White Plains, parking is a premium. But apartments in other parts of the county may commonly either have individually assigned parking, or may have ample sized parking lots.

So every town in Westchester has a problem with either finding a place near the train station or parking at the train station? How do they get commuters to want to live there for the "ease of commuting by train" if that's the case?

No, not every station has parking problems. Some stations have ample parking for village residents, some have waiting lists. Some have room for significant non-resident permits, some are more limited. It completely depends on the station.

That's frequently the case. It's common to be dropped off at the station by a spouse or to walk there. Many places have waiting lists.

In NJ it's the same way. The Princeton Junction station has a list that's four years long.

This map of the train lines and length of trips is great:

On the parking issue, it is something you need to research. Many towns have plenty of permit parking for residents and non-residents as well as as daily parking. Others have long waiting lists.

So true. White Plains is easy for Parking, Katonah not so much!

Default all for a price...

You can buy/rent a parking space in many apt buildings.

Usually people get dropped off at the station.
