When you live in the city, the suburbs can seem like a distant and foreign land. Driving a car? Having a backyard? Sure, these seem like nice things, but will you have to trade all of the convenience and excitement of the city for these suburban amenities? Not exactly. Here are three things you should know about the NYC suburbs.
There are three Metro-North lines that serve the counties of Westchester and Fairfield: Harlem, Hudson and New Haven. The line that you use depends on the specific neighborhood you live in. There are several express trains to Grand Central, offering full express service (making no stops in between) or partial express service (making one or two stops in between). While most towns have at least one full express stop, others have multiple, making them convenient and ideal locations for commuters.

Serving the South County and North County

Many of the Westchester and Fairfield County towns are touted for their walkability.
