    Great shots! The fifth picture (marblehill5.jpg) looks like it could have been taken in the Pacific Northwest.

    When it comes down to it, the naming conventions in the state of NY still confuse the hell out of me. Southeast just pouted because everyone knew Brewster because of the railroad, and despite it being part of the town of Southeast, nobody knew that name. If you happen to dislike Southeast, though, you’ll likely find fault with Millerton (and several other small communities on the former Upper Harlem) – part of the town of North East (arguably worse, as it is two words) ;)

      Most of us remember the 1st name of Brewster North for that
      station, sometimes refered to as “B north” as a slang term.
      Chappaqua and Millwood are part of the Town of New Castle.
      Bedford Hills is part of the Town of Bedford.

        Right, but as far as I knew, the town of Southeast was the one pressuring Metro-North for the name change… hence them being pouty :)

          LIRR did the same thing to “Alantic Terminal” ,aka
          Flatbush Ave on the Alantic Branch after decades of
          “reconstruction” there due to Barclays Center opening
          for business

    Marble Hill was just west of BN tower (RR north) where the Put went it’s own way to Put Jct instead of sharing space with the Hudson line to Sedwick Ave. (SK tower) Just west of the station was FH tower and a local freight station.

    So, 1 station left. Guess the question is, have you made your final decision on what’s next?

    Thank you so much for the photo’s.
    I want to see as many photo’s of the area before the Promenade was built (the reddish high rise behind the marble hill station in the current photos). I had moved into that building not too long after it was built and was told of the farm/marsh land that was one there.
