Annadale is a Staten Island Railway station in the neighborhood of Annadale, Staten Island, New York.

History[edit]

Annadale opened on May 14, 1860, when the Staten Island Railway was extended from Eltingville, one stop to the north.[1] The original station building was replaced in 1910, moved a short distance, expanded into a residence, and finally moved to Historic Richmond Town in 1975.[3]

The 1910 station was rebuilt in 1939 as part of a grade crossing elimination project.[4] The station was rehabilited in the 1990s as part of an SIR-wide upgrade/platform lengthening project.

Station layout[edit]

The station is located in a shallow open cut at Annadale Road and Sneden Avenue on the main line. It has two side platforms and light orange color walls and tiles.[5]

Exits[edit]

Southbound platform

The north end has a street-level brick stationhouse at Annadale Road,[6][7] while the south end, next to Belfield Avenue, has an overpass and stairs to each platform.[6][8] On the northbound side, there is a second set of stairs that leads to an adjacent parking lot near Tenafly Avenue, operated by the MTA as a park and ride facility.[9]
