Annadale

Annadale is a neighborhood of New York City in the borough of Staten Island, New York, USA, situated on the island’s South Shore.
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; this settlement is also responsible for the neighborhood immediately to the southwest of Annadale being named Huguenot, and the Seguine family also lends its name to Seguine Avenue, the principal north-south thoroughfare on the east side of Prince’s Bay, the next neighborhood southwest of Huguenot.
