Larchmont is a Metro-North Railroad station on the New Haven Line in Larchmont, New York. It is mostly served by local trains originating or terminating at Stamford. The New England Thruway (Interstate 95) runs alongside the station, underneath a parking ramp for rail commuters. Larchmont Station was originally built by the New York and New Haven Railroad and was rebuilt by the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad twice during the 20th century; First in the 1920s in order to facilitate a separate New York, Westchester and Boston Railway station,[2] and again in the mid-1950s for construction of the New England Thruway.[3]

As of August 2006, weekday commuter ridership was 3,648, and there are 1,015 parking spots.[4]

It is the busiest Metro-North station between Stamford and New Rochelle. In 2001, average weekday inbound boardings were 3,584.[5]
