Annadale, like most of Staten island, is changing. There is also a drug epidemic which makes this neighborhood uncomfortable to walk around. in the 90s the garbage dump was certainly capable of being smelled from here. I would suggest Southern Brooklyn over the South Shore of Staten Island. If you must stay in Staten Island, I suggest Tottenville, Lighthouse Hill, Todt Hill, and Concord

"No longer a wooded area"

Annadale is a neighborhood located on the south shore of Staten Island. Annadale was once an over-abundant woodland but much of the area has been cleared to make room for new homes. A 222-acre park known as Blue Heron Park, is located in the heart of the city was converted into a wildlife preserve. Much of the park area consists of ponds, swamps, and small streams which empty into the nearby Raritan Bay.

The northwestern portion of Annadale is often regarded as a separate neighborhood called Arden Heights. The area overall is highly residential and there is not a lot of commercial fare in the neighborhood. Shopping and dining out should be done elsewhere.
