I didn't received an e-mail back from the New Castle Historical Society, so I called them and spoke to a man who was very knowledgable about the Put. Apparently there are talks between the Town of New Castle and Westchester County regarding the preservation of the station, and they may have to move the station in order to save it. I also called the realtor who is involved with the property, and apparently the owner of the land around the station is looking to lease the development rights to the property. Here's a link to the realtor's page about the station property:

Hopefully the "talks" between the town and the county will speed up before the building deteriorates more than it already has. I'd agree about having trouble picturing condo's on that site, especially considering how narrow it is. However in 2007 Westchester anything is possible. Diagonally across the street from the station, 2 three story buildings (they appear to be residential) have been built, and in my opinion look very out of character for Millwood. They definately weren't there 2 years ago. Anyone familiar with old pictures showing the area behind the station will know that the street and houses behind the station hadn't changed much in appearance since the days when the Put was still there - until now.
Regarding the station with the pedestrian overpass next to it - that was Mount Hope. From the photos that I've seen of it, the station was identical to those at Ardsley, Millwood, Yorktown Heights, etc., with the exception of the extended canopies on all four sides. Does anyone know when the other stations along the line were demolished? I'm especially interested in the ones that were similar to the standard design - Dunwoodie (a larger version, similar to Elmsford), Ardsley, Amawalk, Baldwin Place, and Carmel.
