Historic Preservation and Development Walking Tour: Newark, NJ

April 7 @ 11:30 am - 1:30 pm

EJB APA Newark Walking Tour Historic Preservation

This is a free, custom tour offered by Rutgers-New Brunswick, Edward J. Bloustein School of Planning and Public Policy and Rutgers-Newark, Department of Arts, Culture & Media to members of their communities and to members of the New Jersey Chapter of the American Planning Association-New Jersey Chapter. Spouses, significant others, children, friends and other family members are also invited to attend. University faculty, staff, and alumni are all invited. No RSVP is necessary.


You are invited to participate in an historic preservation and development walking tour through Newark, NJ. Beginning at the apartments at 15 Washington Street on the Rutgers-Newark campus, then Hahne & Co. and Express Newark, winding through Military Park and more, participants will see how many of the city’s landmarks have been repurposed for modern commercial, educational, and recreational use.

TOUR PLAN AND LOGISTICS: Tour will start promptly at 11:30 a.m. Participants will meet in the lobby at 15 Washington Street. The tour will last 2 hours, ending at approximately 1:30 p.m. The tour will examine how an older central city preserves and adaptively reuses its stock.

Participants must provide their own transportation. 15 Washington Street is less than a mile walk from the Newark New Jersey Transit Station. Or from Newark’s Penn Station, take the Newark Light Rail to the Washington Park Station, walk north on Broad Street, then turn left onto Washington Street.

The tour is being led by Rutgers professors Anne Englot (Rutgers-Newark) and David Listokin (Bloustein School), as well as developers and planners working in Newark, including Ben Donsky of Biederman Redevelopment Ventures Corp.

All participants will be required to sign a trip release waiver. Questions? Contact Anne Englot (anne.englot@rutgers.edu) or David Listokin (listokin@rutgers.edu).
