About Us

Brief History

Northfield Community Local Development Corporation, Inc. of Staten Island is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1978 by merchants, property owners, and residents of Port Richmond, Staten Island, for the purpose of community improvement and advocacy. Our founders and key supporters had a vision that the organization would serve more than just the business community. Economic development at the community level must also consider the needs of residents. This vision of a holistic approach to community development is exemplified by the phrase “serving the Staten Island Community” which was printed on the organization’s first stationery. Today, we serve the entire borough through a wide array of services.
