The Harlem Valley–Wingdale (formerly State Hospital) Metro-North Railroad station serves the residents of Wingdale, New York via the Harlem Line. It is adjacent to the Harlem Valley State Hospital. Trains leave for New York City every two hours, and about every 30 minutes during rush hour. It is 69 miles (111 km) from Grand Central Terminal and travel time to Grand Central is approximately one hour, 55 minutes.

This station is the southernmost station in the Zone 9 Metro-North fare zone.

The 7.5 miles (12.1 km) distance from Harlem Valley–Wingdale to Dover Plains, the next station to the north, is the longest between two stations on the Harlem Line.

History[edit]

The station was formerly known as State Hospital and was a flag stop in the 1960s.[1][2] The Wingdale station (originally known as "Wing's station," then "South Dover station") was approximately one half mile north in the hamlet on Dutchess CR 21 (Pleasant Ridge Road). The stations were consolidated in 1977 with the State Hospital station being renamed Harlem Valley-Wingdale and the Wingdale stop being discontinued.[3]

Station layout[edit]

This station has one four-car-long high-level side platform to the east of the track.
