Radburn station is located in the borough of Fair Lawn, New Jersey, along the Bergen County Line. The stop serves the planned garden city community ‘for the motor age’ that has each mode grade-separated, all houses in the small community are connected by both pedestrian paths and roadways. The stone depot with a tall gabled roof was designed by Clarence Stein as part of this new prototype development and opened in 1929. It is located on the national register of historic places. The station is located along Fair Lawn Avenue and consists of two low-level platforms that begin at this grade-crossing and run north and provide the only connection between the two station platforms. The northbound platform has zero amenities and is completely bare with it's only entrance from Fair Lawn Avenue.

The Hoboken-bound platform has the station house, located towards the middle of the platform and set back some distance from the platform.The station house has been restored, with its ticket office open weekdays only from 5AM-9:45AM, although the waiting room is open until 8:45pm on Weekdays. When I was there the station house was very warm and the large bathrooms were very clean, although the ticket office was closed. The building has one single wooden bench along the brick lined room. Directly in front of the historic station house is a modern canopy structure built at some point between 2005 and 2011 that covers about three car lengths, it has green pillars and white gabled roof with inset lighting. The depot leads back to 156 parking spaces along Pollitt Drive that extend a good way north from the station platform, additional parking is in a smaller 65 space lot across Pollitt Drive from the station. Also along the Hoboken-bound platform, between the platform and parking lot, is Cadmus House, which hosts Fairlawn's Historical Museum.
