Mail box behind the far corner of the shelter.  The between-track fence with pedestrian grade crossing mid-platform!  The structure was razed in 1991 and high-level platforms installed.  (Dave Keller photo and archive)

MU Double Decker #1330 lays up on the West Hempstead "Long Siding" in front of the shelter shed at the low-level platform at Hempstead Gardens 01/01/1972. This siding extended from just east of the West Hempstead station west to Hempstead Gardens and was used for layups of MU trains. This was the last year or two of the old MU cars, and the West Hempstead branch eventually ran only a two-car shuttle between the terminal at West Hempstead to Valley Stream, until high level platforms were installed along the branch and the new M1 cars run. This view NE towards West Hempstead (Dave Keller archive)

I take quite a bit of pride in this shelter.  It is a gorgeous structure made of stone, heavy wood support columns and a slate roof.

In the late 1990s, Huntington Station underwent a huge Capital Programs rehabilitation.  Capital had planned to demolish the shelter because it was showing signs of significant decay.

When I found out about that, I spoke with the Project Manager Boris Gutman.  I told Boris that the shelter was historic and it was a beautiful structure in its own right.  I told Boris that if he restored the shelter, it would enhance the beauty of the entire station area and his entire project would come out looking better as a result. To my pleasant surprise, Boris listened to me and not only saved the shelter, but he had it completely restored.  Dave Morrision

The shelter survives today due to the efforts of Dave Morrision; else it would have joined the ranks of the East Williston Station building and Patchogue PD Tower.
