The Recent Urban Revitalization Boom in Downtown Newark,New Jersey

Over the last 2 years Newark seen a Massive amount of Urban Reinvestment in its Downtown Core. Whether its older warehouses and buildings being renovated into lofts or apartments or older 3 story buildings being renovated into mixed use retail with apartments on the upper floors. Over the last 7 months things have really heated up with construction on the New Prudential Headquarters topping out and a New Cablevision call center high rise breaking ground. Whole Foods , Chipotle , Several Burger joints are opening up by the Fall... Over the last few weeks i've been documenting the various changes to Newark.... There will be a Downtown Thread , Ironbound thread and Passaic / Port Thread...the last thread won't be posted till mid July as I have yet to take the River tour yet. As I take New Downtown Photos from now on I'll just place them in this thread...unless its a specific event. I do plan on redoing Forest Hill and University Heights over again.

Is Newark considered a large city - by U.S standards?

Very good news - I'm glad to see the investment in Newark, an old city with a long history and an important place in NJ.

Nice work on the photos.

Well, that's quite an improvement. Newark doesn't look bad now.
