The Ludlow Metro-North Railroad station serves the residents of the Ludlow Park neighborhood of Yonkers, New York via the Hudson Line. The station is the southernmost on the Hudson Line before entering The Bronx. As of August 2006, daily commuter ridership was 250 and there are 33 parking spaces.[1]

Station layout[edit]

The station has two high-level side platform platforms each eight cars long. An additional track is located west of the southbound platform and is used by freight trains.

Both platforms are canopied full length and have a ramp at their extreme north ends that lead to a passageway at track level (fences separating them from the tracks) before a staircase goes up to Ludlow Street, which crosses above the line. Ticket vending machines are on this overpass. The northbound platform's walkway is part of the sidewalk of Abe Cohen Plaza, a turn-around street that also serves as the station's parking lot.
