Woodrow is a name increasingly applied to the western part of Huguenot, a neighborhood located on the South Shore of Staten Island, New York, USA.
The first Methodist church in the immediate New York City area opened in the neighborhood in 1771. Known today as the Woodrow United Methodist Church, its original congregants included some of the island's earliest well-known families, the names on the gravestones of the church's burial ground attesting to that fact.
Long regarded as the western part of Huguenot pursuant to the custom observed by most old-time Staten Islanders of naming a particular East Shore or South Shore neighborhood after the nearest station on the Staten Island Railway, Woodrow began to emerge from Huguenot's shadow when development in the area steadily accelerated during the last two decades of the 20th Century. Today, Woodrow has its own shopping center, its own public junior high school, and the Prince's Bay post office is actually located in the Woodrow shopping center - examples of the neighborhood's sharp recent rise in population.
