BROOKLYN — Northfield Bank, based in Woodbridge, N.J., but with five branches in Brooklyn, is celebrating its 125th year of operation.
The bank was founded on March 1, 1887, by a group of Staten Island business owners and today the bank has 23 full-service branch locations in Staten Island, Central New Jersey and Brooklyn.
In conjunction with the anniversary the bank launched a new historical website at www.eNorthfield.com/125, which includes archives, with photos and articles; history, with details of its past; and logos from 125 years.
It also contains a “Share Your Story” section, where community members share their own stories and memories of Northfield Bank past and present.
Northfield Bank launched this 125th celebration year in November when branch managers, business development officers, lenders and management rang the closing bell at NASDAQ.
The bank will continue to celebrate this milestone throughout the year and residents are urged to stop by their local branches to see what specials are being offered.
