Yankee Stadium Metro North Stop

Some of the most undervalued amenities of the Bronx are the Harlem and Hudson lines of Metro North. And the Bronx is going to get another station in the next year or so at Yankee Stadium. Click here for an Daily News article about the progress.

The map below is pretty hard to read, so BoogieDowner will list all the stops these two lines make. Most are 20 minutes to Grand Central and 15 minutes to 125th Street.

Harlem Line: Melrose, Tremont, Fordham, Bontanical Garden, Williamsbridge, Woodlawn, and Wakefield.

Hudson LIne: [Yankee Stadium], Morris Heights, University Heights, Marble Hill, Spuyten Duyvil, and Riverdale.
Just a little FYI for people who maybe didn't know how plentiful the transportation options are here in the BoogieDown.

sad it took some criminal politics and dealmaking that essentially alienates boogedowners further to make a station that was sorely needed long long ago. gone will be the days that visitors to the station actually walk through neighborhoods in the area. now theyll hop off train, hit the mall, see the game and get back on train to home outside of the area.

would agree that stations raison d'etre might be that it shields suburbanites from other parts of the neighborhood; they no longer have to take the 4 or D train. But the whole Yankee Stadium demise and "new" ballpark, I find incredibly sad.
