You can make a two-day tramp out of this circuit, by taking the train to Suffern, hiking for two days on the Suffern-Bear Mountain trail, and taking the Metro-North at Manitou Station back to Grand Central Terminal.
You may want to try other trails, and in that case the Suffern train station is a good place to disembark.  There are a number of taxi services in the Suffern area, and you can arrange a pick-up from the station ahead of your hike. The Sloatsburg station is the closest station to Reeves Meadow Visitor Center, and some beautiful ridge-top hikes and a trail along scenic Stony Brook begin from that parking lot, although you’ll walk almost two miles to reach it. The trains run at irregular times on the weekends, with the first train arriving in Sloatsburg after 9 am and running in two-hour intervals after that, until evening.  Check the train schedule. For the energetic weekend-long hiker, the beauty of the Sloatsburg station is that it deposits you in a very scenic corner of the park, at the start of so many picturesque trails, and you can combine these trails (both ridge trails and valley trails) to traverse the park in two days, and see all the variety Harriman has to offer in its lakes, streams, and boulder-strewn mountaintops, and overnight in a lean-to.
From the train station, follow the red blazes of the Ramapo-Dunderberg trail out of the rail station parking lot and north through a residential neighborhood: over the Ramapo River and New York State Thruway, up East Village Drive and onto Grove Drive, where the trail (finally!) enters the woods to climb Horse Pond Mountain.
Trains run infrequently to this station (there are seven stops per day on the weekend, in each direction).  Check the schedule for accurate times.
You can also catch the local taxi service from the station.  Arrange in advance with Village Coach Taxi.

In the olden days, a passenger train called the West Shore railway ran up the western side of the Hudson River from New Jersey and afforded a hiker easy access to the east side of Harriman State Park.

Bring your pack and stay the night in the park, and get back to Manhattan in time for work on Monday.  Picture via Dreaming of Dimples. Follow the red blazes out of the parking area and north, over the Thruway and into a neighborhood, for access to the Ramapo-Dunderberg trail. The station is located two miles south of the New York State Thruway Exit 16, (the southern most point of the ticketed portion of the Thruway), and has no sidewalk access, simply an access road Google Maps label it as 'Metro N' this leads to a gigantic parking lot with 985 parking spaces. This location isn't original, the stop was put here in 1984, when the line was moved off the main line that went through the towns to a freight cut-off, so the line became the only one in the Metro-North system with suburban stations that have large Park & Ride Lots. The station is located parallel to the thruway but in summer the foliage on trees nicely hide the highway, in winter the highway is visible through the bare trees.

The station has a single platform, but the line becomes two tracks at the southern end of it, that is long and low-level (better for freight operations) with a mini-high level platform at its southern end.
The platform is quite long (probably 8 cars) and a high painted green canopy covers it for most of its length. Towards the center of the platform, facing the kiss & ride loop is a decorative scketch of a steam engine pulling into a town.
This is also where the platform's two New Jersey Transit (although they also say Metro-North Tickets on them) modern touch screen TVMs are. The platform has some outside benches but also three small enclosed shelters one has a bench in it two don't.
