According to local lore, this neighborhood was once called Annadale in honor of Anna, the wife of a much-beloved shipbuilder from the area. There is scant information to prove the truth of this tale, but the playground does bear the Annadale name in homage to the story. Though the Annadale name is shared with a community in Staten Island, there is no certain connection between the Staten Island neighborhood and this section of Queens.
