History of Willowbrook
Much of central Staten Island used to be covered in farmland, and Willowbrook remained largely agricultural until just after the second World War when hospitals were built in the neighborhood. During the 1960s, the nature of Willowbrook transformed from rural to residential, and since then, the area has been home to a cultural-diverse community.
