"Largest Liberian Population Outside Africa"

Clifton is a northeastern Staten Island neighborhood that faces Upper New York Bay on the east. The area is bordered on the north by Stapleton, on the south by Rosebank, and on the southwest by Concord.

Clifton has the largest Liberian population outside of Africa, with an estimated 8,000 strong and growing. Housing prices are some of the lowest in the borough as a result of the immigrant population and overall neighborhood vibe.

The Park Hill Apartments are a privately owned and federally subsidized low income housing complex that is located on Vanderbilt Avenue and Park Hill Avenue. The complex was formerly nicknamed “Crack Hill” due to the many arrests for possession and sale of crack cocaine. The crime in this area has greatly decreased over the past few years
