Proud of my alma mater. Fascinating how all roads are leading to the newly refurbished Military Park.
At the heart of the plan is a proposal to created a multi-block pedestrian walkway through the Rutgers-Newark campus. The multi-block path would allow people to walk from Martin Luther King Boulevard to Military Park, Calcado said.
The path would begin with a new grand staircase, called a “social staircase,” cutting through the aging Robeson Campus Center. Then, Rutgers would renovate the campus library to allow pedestrians to walk through a corridor on the lower level.
Finally, Rutgers would petition city officials to clear car traffic from New Street to allow a green space to extend several more blocks to Military Park on the other side of the campus, Calcado said.
(Which park, by the way, is very close to roll out a public, high-speed wifi network.)
