Right off the water in Staten Island's South Shore lies Annadale, a quaint neighborhood that feels more like a small town than part of New York City.
Accustomed to lavish homes and plenty of parks, residents of the beachfront community say they rarely move away.
Although Staten Island can feel isolated from the other four boroughs, Annadale is a stop on the Staten Island Railway and several of the borough's bus lines run through it. But there's plenty going on here to keep locals in the area.
