Huguenot is a large area of Staten Island’s South Shore which is bordered by Annadale to the east, Rossville to the north, and Woodrow to the west. The area was originally named Bloomingview, and was settled by the Huguenots during the late 17th century to escape religious persecution in Europe. Most of the residences here have been developed within the past 30 years, and include a mixture of townhomes, single family homes, and upscale housing communities, all of which are very well-maintained. Education options for the area include P.S. 36, P.S. 56, I.S. 7, and Tottenville High School. Huguenot is served by the local S55, S56, S59, and S78 buses, as well as the X17, X19, X23, and X24 express buses, and a stop on the Staten Island Railway.
