The Clifton Times provides hyper local news and information for Clifton, NJ from longtime residents, journalists, writers, and those living or working in Clifton.

In response to the decline in local news, a group of long time Clifton residents have created an online news site for Clifton.  The Clifton Times will help city residents stay up to date about current events with a hyper local focus on the Clifton community.

In a city the size of Clifton with over 90,000 residents, Clifton has landed on lists of the top most diverse cities in the State and Country several times over the last decade. A city of this scope can be challenging for residents to navigate, especially new residents. With more of Clifton’s local news bought up by national conglomerates, local coverage has diminished. There is no local paper with online news about the city government, schools or all the events happening across town to help busy residents stay connected and informed. 

This decline in local news is not unique to Clifton, to read more about local news coverage across the US, click here
