Another place I can recommend is a place called Fulton Gardens.
25 County Center Rd White Plains

You won't find a website for it because it is one of those family run rental places. It is a 2 story garden style brick complex, built in the early 1930's. So, it isn't modern, but it is clean and safe.

You can contact the rental office at 212-795-0719.

I know they allow cats, but I don't remember seeing dogs there. You should ask if you call. 1 bedroom in that complex was going for about $1600 about a year ago with plenty of parking for you and visitors. It is also within 10 mintue walk to the White Plains train station.

From your other post, I know you were considering Hastings as well, and you might find something in the small downtown area, but it might be over a commercial property. Dobbs Ferry might have something, too, but it will likely be an older building.

If you don't mind a 20-30 minute drive to work, and want a nice town area, I would consider Mount Kisco. It's Northern Westchester, but it's adjacent to Bedford, which offers a back way to get to Greenwich to visit your friend without dealing with highway traffic. The downtown area has a number of good restaurants, numerous shops, local bakeries, and Starbucks. Adjacent areas in Katonah and Bedford Hills provide for additional shopping and dining, though you will not find a national chain in Katonah -- the area has basically outlawed them, much like Larchmont. There are local organic markets, and Whole Foods is in White Plains, or Greenwich.

Nothern Westchester is far less congested than Lower Westchester, and there are many opportunities for outdoor recreational pursuits in the immediate area. The train to Manhattan is about an hour, but if you're commuting for leisure pursuits, it's an easier hour than if you are doing so for work each day.

You might find a little more for your money than White Plains, and you could take 117 the whole way to work, but the Saw Mill Parkway could save you a few minutes. It's inland, but you're also not far from Ridgefield, CT (for even more shopping, dining, and cultural options), and the Hudson and Sound are not terribly far away, either.

Hall ave & lake street isn't the very best part of lake street, but it's not horrible.

2 years ago, we rented a furnished studio on lake street across the memorial park for around $1300. I'd say that area is safe, close to all, but by no means "luxury". For a "luxury" 1 bedroom, we paid well over $2000.

If you are bringing a car, you should look at places that include parking. To pay for additional parking, it's quite $$, especially the closer to the city you get & street parking, depending on the area, can be impossible.

Having a pet is not going to help you at all.

You should def. make an appointment, make a trip up & visit the areas yourself. Most places want at least 1 year leases.

If you want some more space for a bit less money, look just outside of White Plains- there are a lot of rentals available in Hartsdale along Central Avenue and East Hartsdale Avenue- both are about a 10 minute drive to downtown White Plains and the ones along East Hartsdale Avenue are walking distance from downtown Hartsdale which has a few nice shops and easy access to the train station. Central Avenue ones have a little easier drive to WP as East Hartsdale Avenue can get a little congested, plus a few of them are garden style.
