Manhasset is a station in Manhasset, New York on the Port Washington Branch of the Long Island Rail Road. Though a smaller wooden structure was originally built in 1899, the current station was built in the 1920s in a trench, at Plandome Road and Maple Place, off Park Avenue, five blocks North of Northern Boulevard. It is 17.2 miles (27.7 km) from Penn Station in Midtown Manhattan. A high-level platform was installed in the 1970s. Despite the line being only single track, more parking spaces are available than at other nearby stations on the line, hence many commuters who do not live in Manhasset use it.
Manhasset station was built by the Great Neck and Port Washington Railroad in 1899, the year after the Manhasset Viaduct was completed. The station was rebuilt in 1924 in the Dutch-colonial style typical of stations such as Riverhead, Bay Shore, Northport, and Mineola, and restored between 1999 and 2001 with the addition of more canopies and staircases.
Platform and track
The station has one 10-car long side platform on the south side of the track.
