In popular culture[edit]

The original Garrison Depot building (Still standing just north of the current Metro-North station), the surrounding buildings, the overpass, and the tunnel just north of the depot were prominently seen in 1969's "Hello, Dolly!" during the "Put On Your Sunday Clothes" number. The building was given some retro facade work and was "dressed up" as Yonkers, New York.[1][2][3]
