The circus is coming to Newark!

Newark Ringling Brothers

If you look towards the end of the article, it talks about that big warehouse that's on the Triangle Park parcel. It says that they are going to turn it into a Newark Children's Museum and that the Ringling Brothers are going to have a display in it. It says that the project is in a legal battle and "might" be resolved by next year with completion two years after that.

That link doesn't go anywhere, just to the reply to post screen...

Great stuff!

Feld expects to book about 45 events at the Prudential Center over the next year, said Kenneth Feld, the promoter's chief executive.

That means the arena will host 175 to 205 events in the next year, said Jeff Vanderbeek, owner of the Devils hockey team, the arena's only major league team.

Last year, the Prudential Center sold out two Hannah Montana shows. The circus shows will attract even more families to Newark, he said.

"When Feld comes to a city you know it's safe," Vanderbeek said. "Feld is putting their stamp of approval on this arena and on this city. It speaks for itself."

Man, most of those commenters after the article sound like a beaten-down bunch. They take what should be a nice positive story and stomp on it! :blink:

Here are pictures of the statue's cross country trip. These are probably a few weeks old because the statue was supposed to be installed yesterday (probably today because of yesterday's weather). Taken from Battle of New York.

Why, it's almost as if you feel that actual artwork and creativity was better than random airbrushed pictures of the band members standing around doing nothing.

A little Did You Know trivia: The cover from that classic Queen album ("We Will Rock You" and "We Are the Champions") was a redo of a painting by noted sci-fi artist: Frank Kelly Freas.
