Modernizing a Campus Could Cost Newark History

We are all for modernizing schools, but NJIT plans on rebuilding a bunch of its campus, which would destroy some of Newark’s most historic buildings.

As the third oldest city in the nation, Newark has a rich architectural history, notably in its public buildings, churches, and schools. A great many historic buildings, however, were lost over the years during devastating public-works projects, such as the construction of I-280 and high-rise public housing, and the general indifference of past eras to older architectural forms.

Turn-of-the-last-century architecture in Newark could be torn down, but fortunately not without consulting Newark Landmarks.
