Malverne is a historic railroad station along the West Hempstead Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. It is officially located at Hempstead Avenue and Utterby Road, in Malverne, New York, and is also parallel to Church Street near Malverne Village Hall. Parking is primarily for those with residential and non-residential permits, but metered parking is available.
Depending on the source, the station was built in either 1909 or February 1913. The station was originally named "Norwood" until it, and the community it serves were renamed Malverne, in order to alleviate confusion with another Norwood, New York in St. Lawrence County. "Norwood" was also the name of a station on the former Southern Hempstead Branch of the South Side Railroad of Long Island. Though not officially considered a historic landmark, it is the oldest surviving station along the West Hempstead Branch.
