Be sure to know what time the last train on Metro North is that goes back to the City. Google Metro North. am you friend which branch of Metro North goes to his town. Then Google Metro North and figure out schedule. All Metro North trains leave from Grand Central

Westchester is a large county with many towns and villages. Some are quite convenient for rail travel and others aren't. Local taxis are not always readily available from the station and it's quite possible that they could be quite difficult to get on NYE (even when phoning). Sometimes bus service can help, but coverage is not at all extensive. You will want to plan ahead for how you will get from the train station to your final destination.

Renting a car for the entire trip might be a good option if they are too far from a train station.

Commuting from Westchester to Manhattan is very common, so your friend should have some idea which is the best way to get to where they live. Depending upon the location, they may need to pick you up or have you get a car service from the train station to their home.

The Metro North trains leave out of Grand Central. Metro North map here: http://www.mta.info/mnr/html/mnrmap.htm
