Dubbed, ‘The City that Cares’, Clifton traces its origins back to the 17th century and began life as a small community on the Passaic River. In its original form, it was known as the Acquackanonk Township and comprised sections of the areas Little Falls, Woodland Park and Paterson. In the years that followed, Clifton was visited by Swedish and Dutch settlers.

The area remained part of Passaic until the early 20th century when it was officially founded as Clifton. Shortly thereafter, the city came under the governance of the 1923 Municipal Manager Law, which, in its current form, is made up of seven council members. Clifton’s economy has traditionally centred on the manufacturing of chemicals, textiles, plastics and paperboard. However, as time’s moved on, the city has also seen its retail sector grow.
