Cold Spring Harbor is a station on the Long Island Rail Road's Port Jefferson Branch at West Pulaski Road and East Gate Drive, just south of Woodbury Road in Huntington, New York. It is the westernmost station along the Port Jefferson Branch in Suffolk County, New York. This train station is located in the South Huntington Union Free School District.
A station was built in Nassau (then Queens) County in December 1875 in Woodbury as "Woodbury station", as an extension of the Hicksville and Syosset Railroad. It was renamed "Cold Spring station" on October 15, 1880, although Cold Spring Harbor is across the Suffolk County Line. Sometime between 1901 and 1902 it was moved east to Cold Spring Harbor, and given its current name. The station was razed then rebuilt in 1948. Since 2007, the station has served as the western terminus of New York State Bicycle Route 25A.
The station has two high-level side platforms. Platform A is 12 cars long and Platform B is eight cars long. During the evening rush hours, some eastbound trains use Platform A.
