I'm a former realtor and life long Yonkers area resident. The Lincoln Park area is OK but if you intend to live in Westchester, you will need to learn that your budget has to take priority over safety. Will you be renting or buying? Yonkers is cheaper than nearby towns and villages so you can get more for your money. On the flip side, the crime rate is higher in Yonkers than nearby towns and villages except for Mount Vernon. Because of the higher crime rate and low rated schools, this explains why housing is cheaper in Yonkers and Mount Vernon.

If you are on a limited budget, try New Rochelle first. Look at housing in 10801 and 10805. The crime rate is lower and the public schools are much better. Also instead of Lincoln Park, try north Yonkers (above Lake Ave.) The crime rate is lower at least.

If you can afford a higher budget, look in Mamaroneck, Dobbs Ferry, Tarrytown, White Plains and Hartsdale.

Are you NUTS! If you're referring to Manhattan (New York City), you CANNOT get a permit for a detached garage. Manhattan has plenty of garages which are attached to or underneath buildings. Another issue - why didn't you check the zoning for your property BEFORE you signed the closing documents?? ... more

Debra is being kind stating "Your price range will be a bit of a challenge". Since I'm a former realtor in Westchester County and life long NYC area resident, here's the truth of what you will face. I can say this now since I'm not an active agent:

1 Anything within a 30 minute commute will require you to buy a co-op. Condos and single family houses are outside your budget.

2. Within a 1 hour commute, you can probably qualify for a condo. Co-ops are non existent outside of the immediate NYC suburbs.

3. Within a 1.5 - 2 hour commute, you can qualify for a single family house.

In #1, I'm referring to Nassau County, southern Westchester County (up to White Plains) and New Jersey towns along the Hudson River.
In #2, I'm referring to the border of Nassau / Suffolk Counties, Westchester County - White Plains and north; Rockland County (NY), New Jersey - west / north / south - away from the Hudson River towns.
In #3, I'm referring to Suffolk Coiunty, Putnam County, Connecticut, Orange County (NY), western / southern New Jersey.

BEWARE: The longer your commute to Manhattan is, the more expensive it gets. Also pay attention to property taxes - NY & NJ have high property taxes.
