Hello, join Newarkhistory.com for a walking tour of the old High Street, Lincoln Park, and lower Broad. Our tour will begin at Arts High School and take in a collection of architecture representing over 150 years of Newark history. Come learn what’s so “Divine” about the Hotel Riviera, take in the wonders of “beer baronial” architecture with the Krueger and Feigenspan mansions, consider ethnic migration at St. Nicholas Greek Orthodox Church, several former synagogues and Presbyterian churches, consider class migration in the former Silk Stocking district of Lincoln Park, and finally marvel at what civic pride can do at the Essex County Courthouse.
Special Opportunity! We are going to be seeing the inside of Hopewell Baptist Church/B’nai Jeshurun.
The tour begins at 2:00 at Arts High School (550 Martin Luther King Blvd). Please check http://www.newarkhistory.com on the day of the tour if there is a forecast of inclement weather. The cost of the tour is $10 for adults, $5 for anyone 13-18, and free for anyone younger.
