What a great spot In Newark! This museum exceeds expectations. From the friendly staff, the great selection of works from NJ and NY artists, to the neat little interactive science exhibit, there's so much to see that I'm going to have to go back. The museum is $12 for adults, but $8 for students and free for Newark residents. I loved that they have everything from portraits to landscapes to ceramics and examples of traditional clothing for the indigenous peoples of the Pacific Northwest.

It is one of fifty synagogues that once stood in Newark serving a Jewish population of 70,000 once the sixth largest Jewish community in the United States - The historic building in the Broadway neighborhood is the longest continually operating synag

“Jazz Events” This is a small museum, inside a Synagogue, that has good free attractions during the year. I have been to a good amount of them. It is worth the trip when they are open.

The arena seats 16,514 patrons for hockey and 18,711 for basketball - In total, more than 18,000 tons of steel were used to build the bowl area and high roof, while 62,000 linear feet of ductwork were installed throughout the arena

I LOVE going to events at the Prudential Center! I most recently went for a Trans Siberian Orchestra concert, but I have been in the past for multiple Devils games throughout the season. The venue is always so clean regardless of the high volume of people coming through. It AMAZES me. It's a great place for concerts especially - sound quality is good, plenty of seats, and views are still good even if you get nosebleed seats.
