The Scarsdale Metro-North Railroad station serves Scarsdale, New York via the Harlem Line. It is 19 miles (31 km) from Grand Central Terminal. Scarsdale is the southernmost station on the two-track section of the Harlem Line; a third track begins to the south. The Scarsdale station is the last stop in Westchester County on express trains going into New York City.
Scarsdale is the second busiest Metro-North station in Westchester County, after White Plains. It is the southernmost station in the Zone 4 Metro-North fare zone. As of August 2006, weekday commuter ridership was 4,080, and there are 919 parking spots.
The New York and Harlem Railroad laid tracks through Scarsdale during the 1840s, and established a station in Scarsdale as far back as 1846. The existing station house was built by the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad in 1904 (although some evidence dates it back to 1902) in the Tudor Revival style. As with the rest 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, and it officially became part of Metro-North in 1983. The station has been on the National Register of Historic Places since the year 2000, and faced a restoration project in 2007.
