I'm visiting a friend in Tarrytown, NY next week. Is there a better way to get there from EWR than taking the airtrain to Newark Int'l train station, then going to Penn station, before changing yet again to Grand Central and getting the train from there to Tarrytown?
Are there any trains directly from EWR to this area? I've looked at the PANJNY website, but god, CONFUSING!!

Another option could be quite a big longer but require fewer changes.
You could take the NJ Transit trains to either Spring Vally, NY or Suffern, NY (via Secaucus, on the Pascack Valley or Port Jervis lines, respectively) an then take the Tappan Zee Express (a bus service) across the Tappan Zee Bridge to Tarrytown.
I have linked the bus schedule. The Tappan Zee Express (TZx) is on the left side.

What I'd do is Newark Airport Express Bus to Grand Central (runs every 15-30 minutes), which will drop you off right outside Grand Central. Then take a Metro North train to Tarrytown.
Would recommend not doing the NJT to NYP then getting over to GCT with luggage - it's a pain in the behind (been there, done that). The buses are pretty bad (can get rather crowded, and I'm not a big fan of bringing a bag onto a bus) and the subways, which take as much time as the bus, are just annoying to switch trains at Times Square. The Express bus gets you to GCT in one fell swoop, no need to worry about any extra connections, etc.

I've done work for a company near Tarrytown.
The best option by far is renting a car and driving. No need for the hastles with trains/buses instead drive yourself door to door.
And if you do drive unless if you want a bit of a tour of the city(Bronx) and sitting on traffic for a while, I'd stick to the New Jersey side of the Hudson all the way to the Tappan Zee Bridge (87/287) which ends right in Tarrytown.
