RAILS AROUND WESTCHESTER COUNTY
Title: RAILS AROUND WESTCHESTER COUNTY
Description: The county’s first railroad, the New York & Harlem Railroad, developed by a stagecoach maker, arrived in the 1840s. Its arrival accelerated growth and commerce around the county because of the proximity of New York City. Several other railroads sprung up until, at the county’s peak in 1930, there were eight railroads operating. Today three of the originals are still operating. Kent W. Patterson will tell the fascinating story of railroads in Westchester, based on his book Rails Around Westchester County.
