UPDATE Was great to walk & talk about Ironbound’s changing riverfront last Saturday. Was especially amazing to share Mr & Mrs Gilmer’s memories of growing up in the Roosevelts and their first visit to Newark Riverfront Park. Also thanks to Ironbound Community Corporation‘s Nancy Zak, Drew Curtis, and members of the EJ Team! Email newarkriverfront [at] gmail.com if you’d like to join a future walkshop on the Downtown or North of 280 riverfronts!
