Metro-North Railroadstation serves residents of the Harlem neighborhood of Manhattan, New Yorkand commuters who work in Harlem via the Hudson Line, Harlem Line and New Haven Line. It is the only station besides Grand Central Terminalthat serves all three lines east of the Hudson River. Trains leave for Grand Central Terminal, the Bronxand the northern suburbs regularly. Harlem-125th Street is seldom used for travel to and from Grand Central. However, it remains possible to do so. On a related note, the station is within the boundaries of the CityTicketprogram. It is 4.19 miles (6.7 km) from Grand Central, and travel time is approximately ten minutes. One block to the east is 125th Street on the IRT Lexington Avenue Line(NYCS Lexington) of the New York City Subway. From Harlem, riders can also take the M60 bus to LaGuardia Airport.
The current Harlem-125th Street Station was built in
1896-97 and was designed by Morgan O'Brien, New York Central and Hudson River Railroadprincipal architect. It replaced an earlier one that was built in 1874, when the New York Centraland the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad, the ancestors of today's Metro-North, moved the tracks from an open cut, to the present-day elevated viaduct. The original station on the site was built in 1844, when the trains ran at grade-level on what is now Park Avenue. That station was demolished to make way for the open cut.
A recent mid-1990s renovation of the 1897 structure has cleared out a century's worth of neglect and deterioration. The entire Park Avenue viaduct was replaced piece by piece without disturbing Metro-North service for the durration of the renovation. The renovation is considered a replication, rather than renovation, of the original 1930s version of the station being that none of the original structure is visible to the public.
