The Harlem LineMy recent web page about the Metro-North commute to lower Westchester. created a good deal of interest.   Another post about the New Haven Line and the Hudson Line were also well -received.  So now I am adding the Harlem Line to this collection of posts.  For those interested in commuting by car might also like to check out my web page about commuting by car in lower Westchester.

The Harlem Line:

The Harlem Line – depicted in the map on the right,  passes through the central towns and cities of Westchester County.  During off-peak hours there are three trains northbound to Westchester and three trains southbound to Grand Central Station.   The major express stop is White Plains which – with very few exceptions enjoys the distinction of being a stop for virtually every train on the line.  Apart from the White Plains express stop, there are peak hour express trains from Crestwood, Scarsdale, and Chappaqua.
