The Morris Heights (also known as Morris Heights – West 177th Street) Metro-North station serves the residents of the Morris Heights neighborhood of the Bronx, New York via the Hudson Line. Trains leave for New York City every 25 to 35 minutes during peak hours, and every hour at other times and on weekends. It is 8.1 miles (13.0 km) from Grand Central Terminal and travel time to Grand Central is approximately 17 minutes.

It is located in the narrow strip of land between the Major Deegan Expressway and the Harlem River, next to Roberto Clemente State Park.

The station has operated since the days of the Spuyten Duyvil and Port Morris Railroad as well as the New York and Putnam Railroad late in the 19th century, though not in its present form.[1]

Platform and track configuration

This station has one high-level island platform serving northbound and southbound trains and accessible from West Tremont Avenue (West 177th Street). The platform is four cars long; when trains stop at this station, only four cars can receive and discharge passengers.
