Newark

Newark

One of the busiest in New Jersey, the intersection of Broad and Market streets is where downtown Newark’s bustling business, retail and culture have always come together. Situated at the southernmost end of the Passaic River, this neighborhood has long symbolized the merging of modern-day technology and mass communication, suggesting the countless connections that would improve the world to come. Back in the 19th century, every block boomed with innovators of industry: among them, a young Thomas Edison, who followed his own forces of inspiration, ambition and achievement, joining other enterprising engineers and like-minded tinkerers right here in our own remarkable neighborhood.
