Metro-North has dreams of turning some of its train stations into restaurants or retail hotspots.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the MTA is ready to put for rent signs on stations in Peekskill, Tarrytown, Ossining and Port Chester.

Bids for the buildings, with 10-year leases, are due next month.

The new tenants would have to maintain the buildings and restrooms.

Also, they would still have to provide commuters with the usual morning coffee services.
