I've always driven in and around Yonkers, which is conviently located to many of the major highways and thoroughfares including the Cross County Parkway, Route 100 and a few others.
Driving in and around Yonkers is fine, there is plenty of places to park whether metered or not and many of the shopping centers and restuarants have their own parking.

Yonkers is served by two lines of the Metro North Railroad. On the west side along the river is the Hudson line which is shared by Amtrak. On the east side the Harlem line goes through. Both provide transportation north and also south to the city.
