History

The New York and Harlem Railroad laid tracks through Tuckahoe during the mid-1840s, and evidence of a station in Tuckahoe can be found at least as far back as the 1850s. The current Tuckahoe station building was originally built in 1901, by the New York Central Railroad, and was given an additional baggage elevator approximately in 1912. The station continued to serve commuters without much change until the New York Central merged with rival Pennsylvania Railroad to form Penn Central in 1968. As Penn Central was facing bankruptcy, the Metropolitan Transportation Authority began subsidizing service in 1970, and high-level platforms were constructed to accommodate the new M1A electric MU cars being delivered at the time. Operation of the railroad continued and was passed on to Conrail in 1976. Metro-North took over direct operation in 1983. In the Spring of 1989, the platforms were reconstructed, along with those of Fleetwood, Bronxville, and Crestwood stations. The baggage and freight elevators were also converted into passenger elevators. Along with Hartsdale and Scarsdale, it is one of three stations on the Harlem Line that features a Starbucks coffee shop inside its station building, a location which opened in June 2006.

Station layout

The station has two high-level side platforms, each 12 cars long.
