Arlington was a station on the abandoned North Shore Branch of the Staten Island Railway, in Staten Island, New York. It had one island platform and two tracks. It was closed on March 31, 1953. For a few years before its closure, it was the western (railroad direction south) terminus of the North Shore Line; before then, the terminus was the Port Ivory station to the west. It was located in the Arlington and Mariners Harbor sections of Staten Island, near the Arlington Yard, under the South Avenue overpass, between Arlington Place and Brabant Street.
