Port Jefferson Branch Stations

(former abandoned stations in this font)

 

Landia - open 1952-1973

Syosset - An older station dated from 1891 and was taken down in 1948. I don't know the date of the current station. Follow this link to A Syosset Scrapbook for pictures of the old station. The first picture was taken in March, 1999; the rest in February, 2007

Cold Spring Harbor - An older station was taken down in 1948. Again, I don't know the date of the present station. Same photo dates as for Syosset,

Huntington - The present station dates from 1909. The first picture is from 2009; the rest are 2/15/2009.

Greenlawn - Original station was built in 1870 and replaced in 1911. I have no information on the date of the current station. The first picture is from 2009; the rest are 2/15/2009.

Northport - Built 1927. The first picture is from 2009; the rest are 2/15/2009.

Kings Park - The current station dates from 1948. An older station was built in 1891 and was removed when the current station was built. The first picture is from 2009; the rest are 2/15/2009.

Smithtown - Original depot erected 1872. The present building is from 1937. The second two pictures, of the original station, were contributed by David Huber. The rest are 2/15/2009.

St. James - Station building completed in 1873, perhaps the oldest of the entire LIRR still standing. Definitely one of the most beautiful Victorian era buildings. The first picture is March, 1999; the rest are 2/15/2009.

Flowerfield - Station opened 1910 on the estate of John L Childs (the seed and flower man of Floral Park fame). Service ended in the late 1940's. Building demolished July, 1959.

Stony Brook - Robert Emery (in 1959) lists the station as having been built in 1888. Ron Ziel's "Victorian Stations of the LIRR" (1988) says 1873, and that it was completely rebuilt in 1917. These two recent pictures show the exterior and interior, respectively. The first two pictures are from March, 1999 and the rest are 2/15/2009.

Port Jefferson - The current station was built in 1903 and was recently renovated to its former state. The picture below was taken before the renovation. Perhaps you saw the renovated station in one of the LIRR's ads in Newsday in 2007.

As you can see, several of the Port Jeff branch stations are fairly new and I don't have any information as to when they were built. If you have any information, please let me know.
