SYNOPSIS: There are many negative stigmas associated with Newark, NJ. And given some of the economic and crime rate data available, understandably so. But one considerable ray of shining light gleaming from within the community is the Prudential Center. Though they will soon be losing their NBA tenant to Brooklyn, I was thoroughly impressed with the modernness of the facility, its versatility in attracting a wide array of events, and the inclusive feel the facility gives to event attendees. Among the top drawing sports venues of its size in terms of annual event attendance, it is the hope of local leaders that Prudential’s success can be a part of Newark’s urban renewal.

Found this to be an interesting read, thought I'd share

I read it too, There is alot of truth to that. I think the issue is the gateway building unfriendly from street level. I would love to see them use the Urban hub transit credit to redo the 1rst two floors of that building to be retail facing the street or a mall complex.
