The Staten Island Board of Realtors takes pride in the richness and cultural diversity of our borough.
In doing do, we would like to share the following article from Capital.com with our readers:
Life in Little Liberia, Staten Island
Perhaps fans of the hip-hop group The Wu Tang Clan know that not all of Staten Island is predominantly white and working- or middle-class.
The Park Hill projects and the surrounding neighborhoods of Stapleton and Clifton, referenced often in the Wu Tang’s lyrics, are home not just to a large number of African American New Yorkers but to a diverse mix of immigrants, including Dominicans, Mexicans and West Africans.
The latter group, which includes a significant Liberian population, stands out enough that “Park Hill,” as the area around Park Hill Avenue in Clifton is commonly known, is also known to many as Little Liberia.
