The Hartsdale Metro-North Railroad station serves the residents of Hartsdale, New York and Scarsdale, New York via the Harlem Line. It is 20.6 miles (33.2 km) from Grand Central Terminal, and the average travel time varies between 42 and 48 minutes depending on whether a train is local or express.

This station is located in the Zone 4 Metro-North fare zone.

History[edit]

The station was originally built in 1915 (or 1914 according to the MTA[4]) by the Warren and Wetmore architectural firm for the New York Central Railroad, as a replacement for a smaller wooden depot built by the New York and Harlem Railroad originally known as "Hart's Corner Station." Unlike most Warren & Wetmore-built NYC stations, which were grand cathedral-like structures using Beaux-Arts architecture, this one was strictly of the Tudor Revival style. As with most of the Harlem Line, the merger of New York Central with Pennsylvania Railroad in 1968 transformed the station into a Penn Central Railroad station. Penn Central's continuous financial despair throughout the 1970s forced them to turn over their commuter service to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority which made it part of Metro-North in 1983. In 2011, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2] A Starbucks is located within.
