These train lines transport commuters from all over the county to Grand Central Station in mid-town Manhattan. The power of having a Metro-North stop in your home time is reflected in higher home prices, and a greater resilience to the housing recession. The towns in lower Westchester with an easy commute, held up better than a town up-county with no train station.
The reason for this disparity is obvious. With the rising cost of fuel and the heavy congestion on the roadways, having easy access to a Metro-North train station is an obvious plus. Being able to easily hop a train certainly beats spending hours in traffic burning gasoline as well as your patience. Also, even if the train station is geographically close by, if it is not located in the municipality in which you reside, parking permits can become problematic.
