Annadale is located on the southeastern shore of Staten Island, bordered by Eltingville, Arden Heights, and Woodrow. The area is named after Anna Seguine, one of the South Shore’s earliest settlers. In 1929, a large portion of coastal land was purchased by Spanish immigrants who founded a small colony called Spanish Camp, but the buildings were demolished by the end of the 20th century. Annadale offers upscale, modern and luxury homes, many of newer development. The area includes many beautiful private areas for these mansion-style homes. There is ample woodland in the area, as well as the Blue Heron Park Reserve. Education options here are P.S. 36, P.S. 55, I.S. 7, and Tottenville High School. Transportation routes through the area include the local S55, S59, and S78 buses, and the X23 and X24 express buses.
