If you take Metro-North from Tarrytown, you might have noticed a few changes at the station recently. Like the new beautiful artwork featuring Hudson River wildlife.
My colleague, Greg Shillinglaw, attended Thursday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the completion of nearly $40 million in renovations:
The Tarrytown station — second busiest on the Hudson Line — boasts new platforms and canopies, heated shelters and a wireless monitor that provides real-time information to passengers.A building at the station was restored as part of a separate $2 million project, and Metro-North plans to lease the structure, which was built in 1890 by the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad.
Artist Holly Sears’ pictures of flora and fauna native to the Hudson River decorate the station. Her artwork is featured on glass panels of an overpass that connects riders to the other side of the tracks.
