MLK Blvd/Lower Broad Street Walking Tour

Hi, this is an announcement for Newarkology’s first walking tour since last October.
On Sunday, August 10th, join us for a walking tour of MLK Blvd (formerly High Street) with a bonus walk back through Lincoln Park and Downtown. High Street is one of Newark’s most historic streets. Come and learn about the fascinating history of buildings like the Hotel Riviera, B’Nai Jeshurun, the Feigenspan Mansion, the Brick Towers, the old YMHA, the Krueger Mansion, Arts High School, the Essex County Courthouse, and more!

We will be spending most of our time on High Street, but we will be walking back along Broad Street. I do not plan to go into Broad Street buildings at the same level of detail that I will be going over MLK Blvd buildings, but I will be sharing a few historic notes about Lincoln Park and then the march of downtown Newark.

The tour will begin at 12:15 and will last 2.5 hours. We will go in all weathers except torrential rain or heat above 90 degrees. If the weather is threatening, please check the front page of www.newarkhistory.com for an announcement of cancellation.
