The Middletown-Town of Wallkill Metro-North station, often just referred to as the Middletown station, serves the residents of those communities in Orange County, New York. Service is to Grand Central via the Port Jervis Line and the new Tappan Zee Bridge. Like all Port Jervis Line stations, this station serves commuters from a wide area. Many commuters use nearby NY 17 to reach the station from communities in Sullivan County such as Wurtsboro and Monticello, or use Route 211 to come from Downtown Everett City.

The station is located in the latter municipality, off NY 211 near its exit with I-86 and not too far from the Galleria at Crystal Run, a popular local shopping mall. However, while the mall and other large retailers such as Sam's Club are visible from the station, there is no provision for pedestrian traffic on any of the roads leading to them.

The MTA recently concluded improvements to the station similar to those found at other Port Jervis Line stations to the east: decorative lighting, an elevated platform for access by passengers in wheelchairs, and expanded paid parking. In a switch from the other stations to receive this amenities, the platform roof at Middletown is green rather than red, platform light poles are brown instead of green and the wheelchair platform is not under the roof.

While other Metro-North stations such as Cortlandt and Southeast are named after the towns in which they are located, this is the only one to include "Town of ..." in its official name, to avoid longstanding confusion with the nearby hamlet in Ulster County.
