[hide]*1 History

[edit] HistoryEdit

Amityville Station is typical of the elevated Babylon Branch trains that were rebuilt during the mid-to-late 20th century. It was originally built in 1868 by the South Side Railroad of Long Island, then replaced by a brick station in 1889. From 1890 to 1913, it included a bridge over the trakcs for the Huntington Railroad trolley line. The station was completely demolished in 1964 and in 1968 another temporary station building was opened along with hi-level side platforms for the grade crossing elimination that were demolished in 1973, as were it's sister stations Copiague and Lindenhurst. The elevated structure was opened on August 7, 1973. The 1868 station has been a private residence since it was replaced.
