Ho-Ho-Kus is a NJ Transit station served by the Bergen County Line and Main Line. The station is located in Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, at Brookside Avenue and 1st Street, across the bridge on Warren Avenue from Franklin Turnpike. The station's current westbound structure was constructed in 1908 with river stones and a tile roof. This replaced facilities built in 1886 that burned. The first station, built in 1860, had also burned down several years after construction.[3] The eastbound side was an irregularly shaped waiting shed built in 1909.[5]
