About Huguenot

Huguenot is a fantastic little community located on the South Shore of Staten Island, New York. Initially named "Bloomingview," it was later renamed after the Huguenots, a group of French Protestants led by Daniel Perrin who settled in the area in the late 17th and early 18th-centuries to escape religious persecution. This area is bordered by Arden Heights to the North, Woodrow to the West, Prince's Bay to the South, and Annadale to the East. The neighborhood is represented in the New York City Council by Joe Borelli, who was born and raised there, and in the New York State Senate by Andrew Lanza  and in the New York State Assembly by Michael Reilly.

Huguenot's history is deeply rooted in the arrival of the French Protestants fleeing persecution in Catholic-dominated France. They formed one of the first permanent settlements on Staten Island. The Staten Island Railway's Huguenot station opened in 1860, originally named "Huguenot Park" despite the absence of any real park. The name "Park" was eventually dropped, but it remains in the name of the Huguenot Park branch of the New York Public Library, which opened nearby in 1985. The library is the cornerstone of the community, providing valuable resources and services.
