Share Info About Concord
Concord is a small neighborhood located in the northeastern section of Staten Island in New York City. It is bordered by the communities of Grasmere, Clifton, Dongan Hills, Emerson Hill and Old Town. Back in the early 1800s, Concord was named Dutch Farms, but was renamed in 1845 after Concord, Massachusetts. Many intellectuals are from the Concord area of Staten Island, including Judge William Emerson, the brother of Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Henry David Thoreau, author of the famous novel Walden. Concord is a relatively forgotten neighborhood in Staten Island today. Most of the property that was once developed in the neighborhood was condemned in the 1960s in order to make way for the Staten Island Expressway. One of the former major roads in the neighborhood, Price Street, was rerouted and is now a service road of the expressway and is known as Narrows Road North. For workers commuting out of Staten Island on a daily basis, Concord is a very convenient location for them to live in. Located so close to the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge, Concord residents can commute into Manhattan with relative ease. For express service into Manhattan, commutes can take the express busses x10, x14 and x15. For local service, Concord is served by the s74 and s76 on Targee Street and the s53 and s93 on Clove Road and Narrows Road. Children of school age can attend either P.S. 48 or Concord High School on Rhine Avenue. The Concord High School, originally constructed in 1964, sits on Steuban Street and Rhine Avenue. Locals comment that the Concord High School anchors the rather obscure Concord neighborhood, which since 1964 had been dominated by the Staten Island Expressway, Richmond Road, West Fingerboard Road and the Staten Island Railway. The Concord High School building is a beautiful classic red school building, reminiscent of an earlier era. It brings culture and tradition to the neighborhood. Concord is a predominantly middle class neighborhood. Despite once having a large German population, Concord is now a diversified neighborhood, although still a predominantly white. While the average income and rent is far below that of the rest of greater New York City, it is average for Staten Island
