Roslyn Station move View N Roslyn Station move - Completed 12/08/1988 Photos: Dave Morrison

Research at the Bryant Library Local History Collection in Roslyn, the building was moved to its new location on December 8, 1988 (“The Roslyn Long Island Railroad Station.” Roslyn News, December 8, 1988). It reopened on July 30, 1990 with low-level platforms (“Roslyn Train Station, Originally Built in 1887, Has Been Reopened for Business.” Roslyn News, August 16, 1990). Construction of the present high-level platforms began on March 3, 1997 (“LIRR Renovations Underway.” Roslyn News, March 6, 1997) and probably was completed in the fall of 1997. Derek Stadler

I was there that day and watched as they moved it. It was quite a show.

I believe that is me in the blue raincoat at the crossing watching. I had some poloroids of this I have to find.
