Hewlett (LIRR station) Wikipedia
Hewlett Station was originally built by the South Side Railroad of Long Island as Cedar Grove Station in July 1869. This name would only last until October, when it was changed to Hewletts Station. In 1870, the station was replaced with a new building, that has remained intact ever since, making it the oldest railroad station on Long Island, and the only existing building constructed by an LIRR predecessor. High-level sheltered platforms were added across Franklin Avenue during the late-1990s, and a new station house was built diagonally across the grade crossing from the original one between November 25, 2002 and July 28, 2003. After the LIRR built the new Hewlett Station, the oldest active station became the 1873-built Saint James on the Port Jefferson Branch in Suffolk County. Today the former SSRLI Depot is owned by the Long Island Rail Road, but leased to a local taxi company.
This station has two high-level side platforms. The east platform (adjacent to Track 1) is 10 cars long and the west platform (adjacent to Track 2) is eight cars long.
