Train stop from 1888 to host Mamaroneck restaurant
Many Metro-North Railroad station buildings host coffee shops, and in at least a couple of places — Hartsdale comes to mind — they are as much a place for people to take a break while downtown and kill some time as they are places for commuters to pick up coffee and a scone on the way to work.
In Mamaroneck, brothers John and Chris Verni propose something a bit more extravagant with the 1888 Romanesque building at the village rail stop. As my colleague Aman Ali reports in our Sound Shore blog, the Vernis are ready to kick off the construction of a restaurant in the building Thursday.
It would also hold some office space.
The station is more on the edge of the Mamaroneck’s downtown than in the middle, but it has the added blessing of a park on one side, with trees and a brook, that help you forget what year it is.
Check The Journal News to keep up on the plan, to see what the Vernis do with the place.
