Prince's Bay is a Staten Island Railway station in the neighborhood of Prince's Bay, Staten Island, New York.

History

The station opened on June 2, 1860 as Lemon Creek, with the opening of the Staten Island Railway from Annadale to Tottenville.[1] Prior to being placed in an open-cut the station consisted of a small platform connected to a small station house, which was connected to a two-story house. The platform could be reached by going up a short staircase.[3]

Station layout

The station is located near Seguine Avenue and Amboy Road on the main line, and is located is in an open-cut with two side platforms, green canopies, and walls of steel and concrete. A railroad spur leading to the St. George-bound tracks also exists just outside of this parking lot. Maps do not show the station name with apostrophe while the station signs do. The latter is the historically correct (and official) name. This station was the last all-timber platform on the line before being replaced in the early 1990s.
