Rhinecliff Train Station

Railroad Station

Rhinecliff-Kingston station (often simply Rhinecliff station), is an Amtrak intercity rail station located in Rhinecliff, New York. It serves northern Dutchess County and the nearby Kingston area across the Hudson River on the west bank. The Rhinecliff station was built for the New York Central Railroad in 1914. The light-colored brick and stone exterior is punctuated by soaring arched windows; paired brackets support the deep eaves of a gabled roof covered red clay barrel-tiles. The station clings to the bluff above the Hudson River and uses many levels and stairways, some interior and some exterior, as well as a covered bridge over the tracks for foot traffic. At one time there were four tracks along the Hudson through Rhinecliff. Today, only the former southbound tracks and platforms are used, and the former northbound tracks provide a long, narrow parking area. The interior uses much brick and polished wood and provides a lovely view over the Hudson River.
