Floodwaters leave Croton commuters high and dry

Posted: Updated:

Floodwaters have been slow to recede at the Croton-Harmon Metro-North Station parking lot, leaving many commuters high and dry.

Floods from the powerful nor?easter shut down two big sections of the parking lot. Runoff combined with high tides, put about 400 spaces under water for at least part of the days following the storm. That leaves the remaining spaces at a premium.

The lot is owned by the Village of Croton. The village is providing parking for commuters in a lot at Westchester County's Croton Point Park. There is also a shuttle service to and from that lot during the morning and evening rush.

Village Treasurer Abraham Zambrano says that is just a short-term solution. ?The village has hired an engineering consultant that is investigating three possible options that are being taken seriously,? said Zambrano.
