Many residents have memories of either riding the trains themselves or or waiting to pick up their father from the station:
"We'd pick up my Dad at the station at the end of his hot summer day in NYC, and head over to Memorial Park for a dip in the pool to cool off before bedtime. Ate my first mulberries from the trees on the Westbound side!"
"I always wanted to have a 'Train Dad' but my Dad worked in Livingston, so alas, he had to drive . . ."
"I used to see so many more people walking home from the station. Now everyone drives."
"I used to run up that hill and wait for my Dad's train . . . grew up hearing the stories of my relative Addison Day who was the 'famous' Chatham commuter."
