WELCOME TO CLIFFSIDE PARK!

Founded in 1895, Cliffside Park has come a long way from a town that consisted of farms and woodlands. Its motto, Atop the Palisades, is a perfect description of the borough’s geography. Conveniently located between the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln Tunnel, it is home to many New York City business people who find it an easy commute. Cliffside Park is one square mile, and home to approximately 24,000 people.

Residents of the borough enjoy a multitude of restaurants – everything from Italian to Turkish. Its main thoroughfare, Anderson Avenue, or “The Avenue” as it is affectionately referred to, has many wonderful stores for shoppers to explore. The form of government is mayor and council. There are six council members, two elected every 3 years on a rotating basis. The mayor serves a four-year term. There are four elementary schools, a middle school, an Early Learning Center and a high school. For more information regarding the school system see the Cliffside Park School District official website.
