Southeast (formerly known as Brewster North) is a Metro-North Railroad station serving the residents of Southeast, New York via the Harlem Line. Trains leave for New York City every hour, and about every 30 minutes during rush hour. It is the terminus of the Harlem Line electrified service. For travel farther north to Wassaic, passengers must transfer here to diesel powered service. Exceptions are rush hours and a direct round-trip to Grand Central on weekends. It is 53.2 miles (86 km) from Grand Central Terminal and travel time to Grand Central is approximately one hour, 27 minutes. The current terminal complex opened in 1980 as a delayed replacement for the Dykeman's station, closed a decade earlier, and took its current name in October 2003.[1][2]

Southeast is the northernmost Harlem Line station in Metro-North fare zone 7. Just south of the station is Metro-North's Southeast Diesel Maintenance Facility, and trains either beginning or ending their routes here can be seen snaking to and from it before or afterwards.

The extensive parking at the station is fed by a wide, one-mile (1.6-km) access road known as Independence Way that connects to NY 312 right next to its interchange with Interstate 84, making it very convenient to reach. The station traffic has led to the construction of a shopping plaza and Home Depot along the road at the crest of the rise between the exit and the station; it can easily be seen when approaching the exit along I-84 eastbound.
