Newark & Newark Penn Station

A walk through Newark's Penn Station

A trip to examine the #urbanism of #Newark, #NJ! Just a brief overview; hopefully I will post more in the upcoming days, but here are some brief descriptions: 1) Great overview of Newark, w/ the #DockBridge & #NewarkPenn 2) Gorgeous #ArtDeco #Architecture of #NewarkPennStation's waiting room! 3) Near Penn, Newark has some of the least friendly streets I've been on in a Northeastern city: little #walkability, and very Houston-like. 4) Military Park #Trolley Station & #DowntownNewark's more traditional struture! 5) A view from Military Park, looking over the #skyline 6) A street of #RowHouses converted for local retail 7) Beaver Street, looking North from Market forms a beautifully #urban alley 8) In contrast to Downtown, the streets of the #Ironbound-especially #FerrySt-have a gorgeous, human texture filled with mainly local stores. 9) Goregous view of Downtown from the #PassaicRiver 10) And I can't help but close with some #transit & #railroad history: a classic sign seen at #PATH's #HarrisonStation Enjoy! #UrbanPlanning #WalkingTours #Exploration #NewJersey

Instagram: Hoboken & Lincoln Harbor

"Corporate Campus #Urbanism"... Seen in #LincolnHarbor, #Weehawken, #NJ. Though adjacent to light rail, and just across the Hudson River from one of the most transit-friendly cities in the world, this new development will almost certainly never become a truly urban environment. Wide streets and, empty setbacks; two stories of (at least somewhat hidden) parking; not a retail space in sight. The courtyard only gets worse: what do you want to look out on, the river? How about *more parking*! It's very sad that even a modern #TransitOrientedDevelopment near the heart of one of the most #urban #cities in the world could get so much so wrong. Truly disappointing, and it only gets worse when one considers that nearby #Hoboken exploding into one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the #NYC metro area. Quality, urban housing and more quality urban space is desperately needed. Nice view of the water, though... #UrbanPlanning #UrbanDesign
