Station succession

Woods of Arden is an abandoned Staten Island Railway station in the neighborhood of Annadale, Staten Island, New York. The station opened in 1886 with a cost of $112.55.[1] The station closed after 1894.[2][3] This station was located in between the Annadale and Eltingville stops.

Woods of Arden was a Sunday summer resort that was used for picknicking, boating and swimming. The resort also included an inn.[4] Erastus Wiman, who helped organize Staten Island Rapid Transit was directly involved with the resort, and had a station built to provide access.[5][6]
