Rosebank is a demolished station in the Rosebank neighborhood along the abandoned South Beach Branch of the Staten Island Railway. It had two tracks and two side platforms. It closed on March 31, 1953.[1]

The station was located at St. Marys Avenue & Tilson Place.

In 2008 a proposal was made to build a new station along the SIR Main Line between the Clifton and Grasmere stations. The new station may be called Rosebank.[2]
