Artist Timothy Hyunsoo Lee created a series of 45 laminated glass panels entitled “Come Back Home” (2018) for Stewart Manor Station. Inspired by and derived from a series of original watercolor paintings, “Come Back Home” responds to the landscape of Stewart Manor and to the nearby community. The works take…
Construction at Stewart Manor Station, on the Hempstead Branch, has been completed, and both station platforms have been replaced. The first phase of construction, completed in August 2017, was dedicated to renovating the interior and exterior of the building and rehabilitating the pedestrian underpass; the second phase of construction entailed enhancements to the platform environment and improvements to enrich the customer experience. The new platforms are now equipped with shelters featuring CCTV security cameras, LED lighting, MTA help points, new signage, permanent artwork and Wi-Fi. New light poles, stairs, concrete work and speaker systems have been installed on the platforms to improve station announcements and customer communications.
The replacement work was done in four consecutive stages to prevent full closure on either side of the station: a portion of each platform always remained accessible to customers at all times to board and disembark from trains in both directions. The replacement of the platforms at Stewart Manor and the enhancements to the station are part of a broader LIRR initiative to strengthen and support the growth and development of Long Island.
New platform edge tactile warning strips and rubbing boards have been installed for your safety. Additional ongoing work at Stewart Manor includes art glass fabrication, platform railing installation and shelter shed construction.
Enhancements to the Stewart Manor Station are underway, and the exterior lighting has been updated. A sequence of improvements are planned in the upcoming weeks as part of a broader MTA LIRR initiative to support the growth and development of Long Island.
Construction is underway for the Stewart Manor station enhancements such as rehabilitated sidewalks, ramps, and shelter shed improvements. Rehabilitating the space around the stations is a priority for MTA LIRR and important to accommodate future increases in ridership.
Long Island is in the midst of historic change. For years, as other regions invested in areas like quality, affordable rental housing, mixed-use development, and public transit, LI was content with the status quo.
We sat silent as we watched droves of young people — educated in our outstanding public schools at significant expense — leave home and help create economic growth in other regions of our country.
Two new platforms will be built at the Stewart Manor Long Island Rail Road station in a construction project that begins Tuesday. The platform installation will be done in four consecutive phases, with the first starting Tuesday and lasting until mid-March, according to a MTA release. During the first phase…
The west end of Platform B, on the south side up to the underpass, will be closed to the public starting on Tuesday, January 16, 2018, until mid-March 2018. During this time, customers should be prepared to board the first four cars when going eastbound and the last four cars while traveling westbound. Pedestrian traffic will be limited in certain areas; however, construction will not impact train service or local traffic as all work will take place on LIRR property.
Work to install the first of two new platforms at Stewart Manor will begin January 16, 2018. To fully replace both platforms, the work will be completed in four consecutive phases. Customers will be able to board and disembark trains in both directions at all times for the duration of all phases of the project, as crews will work on one half of one platform at a time.
