109 viewsThis photo was taken around 1897 and most likely from the roof of Feigenspan's Brewery on Freeman Street. The view is to the west northwest. The large chimney in the center of the photo is from the P. Reilly & Sons Tannery which was located between Providence & Lexington Streets. The factory area extended from the Morris Canal south almost to Bowery Street (Fleming Avenue) which would be the middle of the photograph, left to right. The first street from the bottom running L to R is Oxford Street.

High & Spruce Streets210 viewsFrom "Old South High Street" 1929

In winter this street was a carnival place. There was little traffic on the cross streets and the pavement was smooth. A little ice and snow made good sleigh-riding, and the owners of fine horses came here to race them with other owners, and they did so from Mercer Street on the north to beyond Spruce Street, and walked the horses slowly back on the east side. The sidewalks were lined with people as on a circus parade day.

This is a drawing of the corner of High & Spruce Streets with the Albright Mansion in the background.

Raymond Blvd & Broad Street132 viewsWhy Does the Chicken Cross the Road? The answer to that one is easy. Why does a Rhode Island Red hen cross busy Broad Street and Raymond Boulevard, Newark? Neither the biddy who sold her for a quarter to a bus driver, nor the passersby she diverted for nearly an hour, can answer that riddle. She just arrived and nonchalantly strolled across the street - with the traffic light of course. March 16, 1943

64 Mulberry Street191 viewsFEBRUARY 28 1932: America's Chinese man of mystery, the almost legendary Mock Duck, national president of the Hip Sing Tong and reputedly the wealthiest of his race in this country, was the target of an assassin in Newark. The Dr. Fu Manchu of real life was shot down as he stepped from his eastern headquarters at 64 Mulberry St., Newark. shortly after 7:30 P.M. The bullet, fired almost pointblank, entered his neck and emerged through his right cheek. Treated at Newark City Hospital, the man whose slightest word is law in the gambling dens of Chinatowns from the Atlantic to the Pacific deserted his habitual Oriental calm and named his assailant as a young hatchet man known as Eng Pong Quong,
