Fellow Newark History Sites



Newark History Websites I Enjoy

Old Newark

The most comprehensive Newark history site. Old Newark focuses on both Newark's great history - mayors, businessmen, etc - and Newark's common history - diners, ice cream shops, and schools.

Resurgence City

Great photo essay site. You won't find another site to make Newark look so good. The author is a recent Newark arrival living in Vailsburg.
The Canteen This site is mostly devoted to historic Roseville. You will find old photographs, history, and a discussion board for people who grew up in Newark called Bodholt's Diner. The guy also has the most brooding Newark skyline image ever.
Newark Metro Newark Metro is a website of Rutgers-Newark's journalism department. This professionally done website has dozens of fascinating essays, articles, and short blog posts on New York City, Northern New Jersey, and Newark.
Newark Landmarks & Preservation Committee The Newark Landmarks Committee is devoted to the diffusion of knowledge about Newark's historic sights. The NLC is the group that puts up plaques commemorating Newark's past.



Newark Blogs I Enjoy

Newark USA

The author is perhaps the best photographer at work in Newark. His blog is updated daily.
The Daily Newarker This site attempts to write from the point of view of people living, working, and studying in the Brick City.
James Betelle, Where Are You? A blog in search of the "lost architect" James Betelle.
Newark Pulse Newark Pulse represents the entertaining aspect of the city from sports to arts and everything in between. The Pulse reaches from Ironbound to Downtown to North Ward and more, connecting the dots to make Newark one!



Newark History Places I Enjoy
The Newark Public Library The professional home of Charles Cummings is New Jersey's best public library and best historical museum. Not only a repository for books and periodicals, the Newark Public Library has historic exhibitions as well. 5 Washington Street, Newark, New Jersey
The Newark Museum The Newark Museum is not entirely devoted to Newark, but the museum includes the Ballantine House and features of works of Newark artists. 49 Washington Street
The Jewish Historical Society of Metrowest The Jewish Historical Society of Metrowest is perhaps New Jersey's best historical society. The JHSMW produces two or three road-tripping historical exhibitions per year. Recent exhibitions have been on Beth Israel Hospital, Weequahic, and Elving's Metropolitan Yiddish Theater. 901 Route 10, Whippany. Exhibitions travel.



Urban Exploration Sites To Whose Excellence I Aspire
Forgotten New York Newarkology has been inspired more by Forgotten New York than it has by any other site.
Detroit Mon Amour "The Fabulous Ruins of Detroit."
Buffalo Architecture and History An amazingly comprehensive site on notable Buffalo architecture. Also instructive in the area of architectural vocabulary
