ABYLON, NY — Gen- eral contractor Stalco Construction, Keller Sandgren Architects , struc- tural and mechanical/electrical/ plumbing/low voltage engineer The LiRo Group , and the New York State Metropoli- tan Transportation Authority (MTA) have completed the con- struction of the Long Island Rail Road’s (LIRR) new, 3,000 s/f Wyandanch Train Station. LIRR is the busiest commuter train system in the country. Ridership on the Ronkonkoma Branch, of which Wyandanch is a part, has doubled over the past 25 years, necessitating the

daily. Alan Nahmias , Stalco presi- dent, said, “We are proud to have assisted Governor Andrew Cuomo, the MTA, and the LIRR in the massive transformation of the railroad’s Ronkonkoma Branch by building this much- needed facility for the thou- sands of passengers who live in and around Wyandanch, and the tens of thousands of passengers who will be travel- ing through it each day. This project will also go a long way to foster the continuation of Wyandanch’s revitalization.” The new station is part of two initiatives: Wyandanch Rising, a program that aims at improv- ing the hamlet of Wyandanch; and the Double Track Project, which added a second track to the LIRR’s Ronkonkoma Branch, increasing service reliability for those living and commuting along this corridor. The development of the new station building was initiated by the Town of Babylon, which incorporates the hamlet of Wyandanch, as part of Wyan- danch Rising. The program began in 2002 as a $500 million public-private downtown rede- velopment effort to develop a 40-acre zone in the areas north and south of the Wyandanch LIRR tracks into a walkable community. It was, in part, a reaction to the Suffolk County Planning Commission’s having named Wyandanch the most economically distressed com- munity on Long Island just two years prior. Wyandanch, an un- incorporated hamlet of 11,000 within the Town of Babylon, was suffering from poverty and skyrocketing crime rates. So far, the revitalization has included the construction of new apartment buildings, re- tail, an ice-skating rink, a spray park, a botanical garden, a 920-space LIRR parking garage for commuters, and, among oth- er items, the construction of a sorely needed key sewer line. 

Built by Hand While it worked for the Seven Ancient Wonders, construction tools have come a long way.
