Description 

The Scarsdale Railroad Station of the former New York Central and Hudson River Railroad's Harlem branch is significant as one of the most beautiful stations erected during the period in the first decades of the 20th century (1902) when southern Westchester County was developing into a populous suburb of New York City. It was the presence of the railroad lines from New York City's Grand Central terminal, with stops in such communities as Scarsdale that brought development to the area. The Scarsdale Station is a neo-tudor style design and is an early example of the use of this style which came to symbolize the comforts of American suburban life. The station was designed by railroad station specialists Redd & Stem and, although it is a small building, it is one of this architectural firm's finest works. -- Historic American Buildings Survey
