I will be going down to NYC with some friends on Sunday, 6/27/21 for the NYC Pride festival. I was originally going to use Brewster station on the Metro-North Harlem Line, but I'm afraid the parking spots will fill up, as parking is free on weekends. I'd rather not use Southeast as I've heard it's not the best walking situation from the parking lot to the platform, and some of those I'll be traveling with don't use trains often, so I'd like to make a good impression. Is there another station that provides ample parking that's not overbearing?

parking lots are all just about same distance from platform, and since all platforms are island platforms you still have to go up and over be it by foot or by elevator. Southeast is fine so is Purdy's

Poughkeepsie seems to fit the bill. Why not there? You don't say where you're starting from.
