Cold Spring Harbor is a station on the Long Island Rail Road's Port Jefferson Branch. It is located at West Pulaski Road and East Gate Drive, just south of Woodbury Road. This station is located in the town of Huntington, New York, and is the westernmost station along the Port Jefferson Branch in Suffolk County, New York.

[edit] HistoryEdit

The station was originally built in Nassau (then Queens) County in December 1875 in Woodbury as "Woodbury Station," then renamed "Cold Spring Harbor Station" on October 15, 1880, despite the fact that Cold Spring Harbor is actually across the Suffolk County Line. Sometime between 1901 and 1902 it was actually moved east to Cold Spring Harbor. The station was razed then rebuilt in 1948.
