Annadale is a middle-class neighborhood on the South Shore of the borough of Staten Island in New York City. The community received its present name circa 1860, and is named after Anna Seguine, a descendant of French Huguenots who were among the South Shore’s earliest settlers.
Annadale once had abundant woodland, but much of it was cleared in the last three decades of the 20th Century to make room for new homes. However, a city park in the heart of the neighborhood was converted into a wildlife preserve; known as Blue Heron Park Preserve, it covers 222 acres (898,000 m2), much of it consisting of ponds, swamps and small streams which empty into nearby Raritan Bay.
The northwestern part of Annadale is now often regarded as a separate neighborhood known as Arden Heights. Southeast Annadale also harbors its own identity separate from the rest of the neighborhood. This section of Annadale is most often associated with Blue Heron Par. Annadale is served by the Staten Island Railway’s Annadale Station, at Amboy Road/ Annadale Road. It is served by the S55, S59 and S78 local buses and the SIM2, SIM4, SIM23 and SIM24 express buses. Korean War Veterans Parkway passes through Annandale.
