Basking Ridge is a Gladstone Branch station just inside the lines crossing of I-287. This expressway is closest to an outer beltway around the New York City Metropolitan Area (it makes a crescent running from Port Chester in Westchester over the Tappan-Zee Bridge and south before curving back east and ending near the Outerbridge Crossing). The station has a single track with a 7 car low-level side platform on the south side of this track that begins at the grade-crossing of Ridge Street and runs west. The edge of the platform is simply a decaying yellowing line; the station is far from ADA compliant. In the middle of this platform is a station house with simple cream-colored flat walls covered by advertisements, maroon famed windows and a Spanish tile roof. In the middle of the roof a historic semaphore signal still stands albeit non-operating. Inside is a small waiting room with wooden benches, a small book exchange shelf, and a restroom. A radiator is in the middle of the room. It was closed on a summer afternoon. No hours of operation for the waiting room are posted. The station has two small parking lots, the main are a couple rows of parking on each side of Depot Street that runs along the station. These are 53 daily and permit parking spaces. Depot Street curves around to a second, smaller lot that has some grass with a walkway down to the platform and 36 parking spaces
