The proposed Tenafly station was actually south of Clinton Avenue, a block south of the old Erie depot.
Regardless, the Clinton, Washington and Riveredge crossings are the ones that are Tenafly's big issue, particularly the Clinton one. Because of that crappily designed intersection (Clinton, Piermont and County), I can understand why traffic tieups are an issue. You could probably have terminated the service at Tenafly station and just cut off Tenafly North and not deal with those crossings.
As for Tenafly North, the station is probably because there's little room for a Cresskill station proper. The old Erie depot was in the middle of the three way-fork in Cresskill, which is really small
for a station.
Tracks die before Tappan, but basically, the rest are easy situations with the exception of Closter.
Demarest - the Erie depot (Probably NIMBY fight 2)
Closter - Closter Dock Road
Norwood - Broadway (the old Erie depot site)
Northvale - Paris Avenue (the old Erie depot site)
The problem with Northvale that comes to mind is ridership. Who wants to go from Northvale to Jersey City?
