New name for Brewster North

Recommended Posts

It was renamed at the request of government officials as the similar names drew much confusion to the general riding public. 

 

The Town of Southeast politicians were the ones pushing the Southeast name to give it an identity associated with the town it's in.  It's also the Town of Southeast that regulates the parking in the large south lot.

 

"Southeast" of the station is parts of the Village of Brewster.

Thanks very much. I didn't know Southeast was a town.

If that case (not trying to change subject) why is (2) stations on the Hudson Line have these names.

 

1)New Hamburg(Really should be called IMO "New Hamburg/Wappinger" station since there a station on Wassic with 2 names of 2 separate towns and also don't forget Croton-Harmon named after 2 separate names)

 

2)Scarborough=really should be called IMO Scarborough/Sleepy Hollow.

 

reactions?

 

PS IMO renaming "Brewster North" to "Southeast" is correct decision.

1) Well, technically, the station is completely in New Hamburg. It just happens to serve Wappinger Falls.

 

Croton-Harmon was named after the Village of Croton-on-Hudson, and the Harmon Yard.

 

2) Sleepy Hollow is further south (by Philipse Manor), so it should remain Scarborough IMO.

I forgot to add the Town of Southeast is geographically the most south eastern town in Putnam County.

New Hamburg has nothing to do with the Town of Wappinger or Village of Wappingers Falls.  The Hamlet of New Hamburg is in the Town of Poughkeepsie, since the station is in the hamlet, you got it, it's in the Town of Poughkeepsie.

 

Scarborough Station is in the Hamlet of Scarborough which is within the Villages of Ossining and Briarcliff Manor.  The Village of Sleepy Hollow is much farther south as it is between Philipse Manor and Tarrytown Stations.

Question: Was Tenmile River at any point called Wassaic South or something with Wassaic in it, because it is in the town of Wassaic.

 

No. 

 

All along MNRR there are multiple stations within the same town or city.  Examples:

 

Croton Falls and Purdys in the Town of North Salem

Katonah and Bedford Hills in the Town of Bedford

Garrison and Manitou in the Town of Garrison

Prior to the Cortlandt Station both Montrose and Crugers were in the Town of Cortlant

Greystone, Glenwood, Yonkers and Ludlow are all in the City of Yonkers

Mount Vernon West, Mount Vernon East and Fleetwood in the CIty of Mount Vernon although MVW and MVE is very confusing to some even though they are on two different lines.
