Building of the Week: New Rochelle’s Little Penn Station

Print

Ever wonder what it would have been like to live in Penn Station? A lucky family in Scarsdale knows. Sort of.

Once part of the long-gone New York, Westchester and Boston Railway system, this was the former station house at the Quaker Ridge stop on the White Plains line. The upper part of the station is said to be a scale model the old Penn Station in New York.

A private home since the 1950’s, the once rural outpost is now hidden on a residential cul-de-sac off Stratton Road.

You can see more about this, and other unique buildings in the area, on this LoopTV episode.
