Metropolitan Transportation Authority and Long Island Rail Road officials today announced the opening of the first phase of three newly renovated railroad station buildings – at Brentwood, Deer Park, and Northport — bringing modernized touches to improve the customer experience for more than 11,000 daily weekday riders. These three stations are part of more than 100 projects that are slated to transform the railroad, part of an unprecedented $6.6 billion investment by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo.
Northport Station, on the Port Jefferson Branch, was built in 1927 and currently serves approximately 2,335 customers each weekday. The station building’s renovation incorporated historical restoration, to preserve the station’s history while providing modernized features and upgrades.
Finished upgrades include:
• Complete renovation of the station building’s interior and exterior.
• Customer-focused amenities: New benches, improved wayfinding signage, Wi-Fi, and LCD display screens.
• Paver rehabilitation and sidewalk replacement.
Further upgrades to come include MTA Arts & Design permanent artwork and an electronic information display totem.
