The station opened on April 23, 1860, with the opening of the Staten Island Railway from Vanderbilt's Landing to Eltingville. 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 was moved to Historic Richmond Town, located at the three-way loop intersection of Arthur Kill Road, Richmond Road and Richmond Hill Road.
It is located on an open cut at New Dorp Lane and Railroad Avenue on the main line. It has two side platforms and orange colored walls and railings. The northbound platform has a 20-foot (6.1 m) high concrete wall, while the southbound platform has a hill. Express trains begin the express section of their run at New Dorp in the morning rush hour, while some southbound trains may terminate here at the same time.
