River Edge has a simple single story wooden depot with nice wooden signs on its exterior which opened on September 22, 1902 after the original station caught fire on February 8, 1901. The exterior walls have lime green singles with a more turquoise trim. Sign at the entrance to the station claim the waiting room claims its open from 5:00am to 10:00pm weekdays, 6:00am to 9:00pm weekdays but was locked when I visited. The windows are covered with mesh grates not giving me much of a view into the room. The depot is located at the southern end of a simple low level platform most of which is alongside a hilly area of trees. It begins at the grade-crossing of River Edge Road at its southern end. A concrete staircase leads behind the area of the depot up the hill to Park Avenue to provide the one other pedestrian entrance. The platforms only other amenities is a shelter towards its southern end (north of the depot) covering the station's TVM and a shelter covering a bench at the northern end. Across from the station is the stations main 78 space town resident permit only parking lot. Inside this lot is a small building (in the same style of the depot) home to the River Edge Shade Tree Commission, a town volunteer organization in charge of the park and street trees in town.
