Nancy Strong is right. North White Plains is a really great station to take off from. Many people who live in Armonk take the train from North White Plains. The train yard is located directly north of the station so for the most part, most of the trains will take off from North White Plains or they will start off from the White Plains station. Plus, North White Plains has plenty of parking. The only bad part about parking at North White Plains is that you don't want to park near the front of the lot near the river. There was a tropical storm a few years back (2004), 300 cars were destroyed by the flood. Mine was one of them. The monthly ticket in North White Plains is cheaper as opposed to Greenwich.

North White Plains is located in Zone 4 so it is cheaper to travel from Zone 4 than it is from any station in Zone 3.
How do I know all this info? My husband is a Metro North Train Conductor stationed out of the North White yard.

Yu seem to have gotten good advice from all, Train from North White Plains to 42nd Street takes 39 minutes. My husband commuted for twenty-five years and we've lived here in Armonk for 35 years.
I've taught in our schools, Byram Hills and I've been a broker for twenty-seven years here. Anything you want to know about Armonk, I'd be glad to help you with. Thanks for your interest.

First let me say that a very large percentage of commuters from Armonk commute to Grand Central Station in Manhattan. Depending on where you live in Armonk it will take 15 minutes to drive to the North White Plains train station. It is a 2-lane highway so traffic is really no problem. If you prefer to drive I would say that it will take just under one hour to get to Midtown. Either way the commute is definitely not bad. Needless to say that if you work in the Wall Street area you need to then switch from Metro North to the subway going to the Wall Street area so for that I would add another 1/2 hour.
Since my daughter lives in Greenwich and works in Manhattan I can tell you that the train takes longer and parking is almost impossible to get at the Greenwich train station so she drives in - about an hour or some and up to 1 1/2 hours to get back.
Hope this helps. If you are looking to purchase a home in the Armonk area or anywhere in Westchester County please let me know.
