Tuckahoe is an early rebuilt, between 1989 and 1991 station on the Harlem Line. The station consists of two side platforms for the line with three tracks in this area. The station is located in a slight depression beneath street level with platforms that begin at Main Street and head south. The northbound platform has entirely concrete walls or a grassy hill along it. The Southbound platform has a small parking lot that is depressed from Main Street but has access from Lake Avenue parallel to the tracks.
The station has a historic 1901 station house located above the northbound platform along Oak Avenue. The depot been renovated and is now a Starbucks. It has tan brick walls, green trim and a Spanish tile roof. An enclosed pedestrian bridge in the same style extends from the depot to a former baggage elevator at the opposite end. This is now sealed shut with just a staircase down to the New York-bound platform.
The northbound platform has an elevator just south of the pedestrian bridge and station house. The New York-bound platform lacks an elevator with wheelchair customers required to take a ramp (that is not up to modern ADA standards) along the northern edge of the parking lot that winds its way around up to the Main Street overpass. All stair access to the northbound platform is from a staircase near the Main Street overpass, one off the pedestrian bridge and a final staircase from south of the Depot through some trees up to Oak Street. The New York-bound platform is accessed only from stairs and a ramp down to the parking lot below, just at its northern end. Each platform has a canopy held up by tan beams over the most northern 3 cars.
