In addition to new elevators, staircases and platforms, the station’s overpasses feature colorful walls of artwork with scenes of Hudson River wildlife.
The station improvements were funded by the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s Capital program and a grant from the American Recovery and Re-investment Act. The station is the second busiest on the Hudson line.
It’s also part of a series of efforts to spruce up Metro-North stations throughout the system, railroad officials say. Port Chester and Rye just got makeovers and a $22 million in improvements are planned for Harrison, Mamaroneck, New Rochelle, Pelham and Mount Vernon East.
