Located on the South Shore of Staten Island, Huguenot is known for its woodlands, suburban vibe and excellent public schools. The area experienced a major increase in population after a new Tottenville High School campus opened in 1972. Huguenot is bordered by Arden Heights to the north, Prince’s Bay to the south, Annadale to the east, and Woodrow to the west. The vast majority of Huguenot’s residents are Caucasian mixed in with a small group of Hispanics and Asians. The median cost for renting an apartment is a little over $1,000 per month and the average value for detached houses is around $600,000. Originally known as “Bloomingview,” Huguenot took its present name from the French Protestants, who settled in the area in the late 17th century. The religious reformers left their mark on the community with streets, such as Androvett and Billiou which bear French names, and the serpentine stone Reformed Church of Huguenot, designed by US architect Ernest Flagg. The area offers a nice mix of dining options and is home to numerous Italian venues such as Ciro’s Pizza Café and Il Pomodoro Pizza Pasta, both located on Huguenot Avenue. Local Asian favorites include the Chopsticks House also on Huguenot Avenue and Cucumber Sushi and Salad Bar, a Japanese restaurant on Amboy Street. The Staten Island Railway provides access to most parts of Staten Island from Huguenot, including the St. George terminal where the Staten Island Ferry departs to Manhattan. Those who travel by car can access not only most of Staten Island, but also Brooklyn and New Jersey via the Staten Island Expressway. By Rory Sasson
