Marble Hill-225th Street is a station on the IRT Broadway-Seventh Avenue Line of the New York City Subway. Located at the intersection of Broadway and 225th Street, it is served by the 1 train at all times. It is a short distance away from the Marble Hill station of the Metro-North Railroad. Just south of the station, trains cross the Broadway Bridge onto the island of Manhattan.
The Marble Hill neighborhood and the station today reside on the northern shore of the Harlem River Ship Canal, also known as Spuyten Duyvil Creek, and are thus geographically on the mainland. However, the neighborhood was formerly part of the island of Manhattan. The canal was constructed in 1895, separating the neighborhood from the rest of the island. After the original creekbed was filled in, Marble Hill became part of the mainland, although it is still considered part of Manhattan for administrative and political purposes.
- Note: See Wikipedia:Manhattan for an explanation of the distinction between island of Manhattan and the borough of Manhattan, a political entity consisting of the island of Manhattan, several other islands, and the Marble Hill neighborhood on the mainland.
