The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will restore the Hastings-on-Hudson and Tuckahoe Metro-North Railroad stations in New York, two of the railroad’s oldest stations.

Construction crews will follow the original station blueprints to ensure the structures have architectural finishes similar to the original structures, MTA officials said yesterday in a press release.

Hastings-on-Hudson was built in 1910 and Tuckahoe in 1901. The restoration project will involve the replacement of roof tiling; installation of new gutters and snowguards; addition of tongue and groove decking on the canopies; and new paint on the buildings’ exteriors to match the original colors.

The Hastings-on-Hudson Station is expected to be restored by fall and the Tuckahoe will be finished by spring 2023. The project will also conform with the U.S. Secretary of Interior’s Standards for the Treatment of Historic Properties as well as requirements from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.

"Part of the magic of Metro-North Railroad is the beautiful station buildings that it inherited when it was created in 1983," said Metro-North President Catherine Rinaldi. "The goal of this project is to maintain that important history while providing our customers with safe, comfortable station buildings that are also beautiful places to start and end their day."
