New Hyde Park Station was built in 1845 and services the Main Line and the Port Jefferson Branch. New Hyde Park Station serves nearly 4,000 customers daily. The New Hyde Park Station, currently being renovated, is part of the LIRR Expansion Project from Floral Park to Hicksville. Station improvements—developed through input and support received from the local community—include: platform replacement to accommodate 12-car trains; platform canopies; new platform furnishings and accoutrements including benches, shelters and signage; CCTV security cameras to improve safety; ADA-compliant mobility improvements including ramps; Wi-Fi; USB charging stations; and digital information displays. The interior and exterior of the station building will be renovated. New bike racks will be installed, and a plaza with green space at Third Avenue east of Baer Place will be created. ADA-compliant pedestrian access will be maintained with an underpass at South 12th Street, upon the closure of the at-grade crossing to vehicular traffic.
Enhancements to New Hyde Park Station are part of a broader LIRR initiative to strengthen the reliability and resiliency of LIRR infrastructure as well as support the growth and development of Long Island.
