New Dorp is a Staten Island Railway station in the neighborhood of New Dorp, Staten Island, New York.

History

The station opened on April 23, 1860, with the opening of the Staten Island Railway from Vanderbilt's Landing to Eltingville.[1][3] It was rebuilt in 1889 by real estate developers Hughes and Ross who sought to build a depot designed to attract potential homebuyers. The former stationhouse that was in use until the 1965-1968 grade crossing elimination[4] was moved to Historic Richmond Town, located at the three-way loop intersection of Arthur Kill Road, Richmond Road and Richmond Hill Road.
