    I recently had to stop at this station and it was interesting that there were so many boarded rooms and ancient doors to nowhere. On street level (under the tracks) are the original stairways covered over listen entrance & exit. Around the corner, the facade of the station is now a grocery store which was really strange to see complete with NYCRR logos.

    I used to use Mt. Vernon West all the time, but now a days I prefer Wakefield. Even though Wakefield has a really sparse schedule, I don’t encounter as much trouble there as I did in Mt. Vernon.

    What I always thought was cool about Mt. Vernon though, was the design of the station itself. It’s a shame they closed the street exits (the ones under the bridge) because those would be great.

    Did you also know that there used to be a trolley that ran under the tracks there in the 1950s (according to my gran, at least)?
