Edgewater Village Hall is a historic former village hall situated within Tappen Park, a public park located in Stapleton, Staten Island, New York. The village hall was built in 1889 for the village of Edgewater. The village was dissolved during the consolidation of New York City in 1898. The building is a 1 12-story, T-shaped building with a square tower and slate-covered hipped roof in the Romanesque Revival style, now used for municipal offices. The park dates to 1867 and provides a dramatic setting for the village hall.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
