Notes
Survey number HABS NY-6294
Significance: The North White Plains Station is historically significant as the northernmost station on the electrified portion of the former New York Central and Hudson River Railroad's Harlem Brnach. The electrification of the Harlem Line south of North White Plains took place in 1910. Prior to the electrification of the line as far north as Brewster North, North White Plains was the terminus of electric equipment. Passengers changed trains at this station if they wished to continue north. Large train yards are located to the north of the station. It is here that the electric equipment was turned around so that they could journey back to Grand Central Terminal in New York. The present North White Plains station is a modern installation of no historical significance.
