One of my favorite stations on the Long Island Rail Road. It originally opened in 1872 as a Central Railroad of Long Island before being razed in Early-Mid 1898(?). The current station was built in 1898 by the LIRR and serves the Hempstead Branch. Platform A points west towards Atlantic Terminal (Penn Station trains stop here as well, but only at certain times. Please refer to a Timetable.) Platform B points east towards Hempstead. Platform A very often has the most people though, as Hempstead is 2 stops east from Garden City. You can literally walk to Hempstead Terminal, so it makes no sense to pay $3.25 to ride a train for 2 stops.
The interior design of the waiting room is very calm. It has a fireplace, which adds a nice touch. It also has heating, which is VERY essential for the winter months. The floor has a nice little touch with the old Pennsy (Pennsylvania Railroad) style LIRR logo as well as a little ribbon with "Garden City 1898-2006" written on it. Finally, I should also mention that it has a frame with local history of the station as well as some Garden City history.
