People tend to check in during these times:
The platform that should actually be in Manhattan, has a (1) station stop nearby. Getting protection from the elements may be wishful thinking. If only MTA would build a connector. gets quite crowded!
Basic train stop. No amenities (except for ticket machines) and not much refuge from rain or snow, especially on busy days. A few bodegas outside the station if you need food or drinks.
Always try to sit by the window in a quiet car.
Buy your tickets at the ticket machine or else be ready to pay almost almost double in the train. THEY ONLY TAKE CASH.
Be eaely for the 7:08am train. It seems to be the only one on schedule, not to mention is the least crowded...
Fun Facts! 1)Marble Hill is actually part of Manhattan. 2)The Harlem River is not a true river, but an estuary of the Hudson.
This station overlooks the Harlem River, and it’s a great place to sit outside with a cup of coffee and a good book while you wait for the train.
There is one exit and one entrance, so don't get here late as a train is arriving as you will be blocked by passengers getting off of the train.
The walk over from the 225 St. 1 stop is saturated with dog shit. Watch out!
Great view of the... um, river!
The MTA needs to figure out how to connect the 225 street subway station with the Marble Hill MetroNorth Station via an elevated walkway, but alas, such a thing may never happen.
