The station was closed. It gives a view of the river. Has some placards of information on the river. Four or five minute drive of the main road. Why not check it out

This is a deactivated train station. It is mostly closed but one can drive up to it, park, walk around it and look in the windows. There is a historical marker. I found the drive down and back to be more interesting than the station...More

When I came it was closed. But according to fliers there are some events organized here. There is a parking next to it but very small and I am not sure if it is only to serve residents. See pictures

The Hyde Park Train Station is right on the Hudson and offers some nice river views. The station is connected with two great American presidents, FDR and Lincoln. If you like the water, trains and/or presidential history, this is worth a quick stop.
