Tour of Newark Avenue

Making a street open by closing it temporarily or permanently to car and truck traffic is challenging. Take a tour of Newark Avenue to learn how Jersey City took a busy downtown commercial street and turned it into an even more active and exciting pedestrian mall.  Explore the role of artists in helping to make this stretch of Newark Avenue a great place.  Ask questions and get answers from Jersey City leaders who made this possible.


Note: This site visit requires taking PATH (the local subway) one stop from the Journal Square to the Grove Street station.
