So today i went to Downtown Newark & Jersey City. And took a ton of Photos again & videos. Although once again due to the Heat i had to leave Newark but I still got some great shots. I'm going to split it into sections like last time. Starting off with 2 Videos of my Journey by Train to Newark and Part 1 of Downtown Newark. I took over 370 photos , 350 of them in NJ and of NJ. The Rest are lower Manhattan. I took 14 Videos , but you will only see 6 of them.

Amtrak Regional Roar through Seacacus JCT at 90mph heading to DC Union Station.


YouTube - Amtrak Regional to DC

Northeast Corridor Train WB to Newark Penn Station form Secacuse JCT

Downtown Newark - it was much busier then when i visited on Saturday.









































That's the end of part 1 , I actually wasn't really focused on taking pictures of the Masses of People. I planned to do University Heights , Forest Hills & East Ironbound , but the heat got really bad. So i went to Jersey City & Manhattan which has a cool breeze. Sorry NJKate , i didn't take a picture of your old home , when its cooler i'll go back and finish the rest of Newark & Jersey City.

I think whoever owns that "BEEPERS" store should spring for a new sign.

I must say,the immediate core of downtown Newark (area adjacent to Newark Penn) is well kept. Or, at least, MUCH better than when I was a kid.

Impressive JC skyline as well, when I was younger there wasn't a single notable high-rise on that waterfront.

PS: didn't notice that TDBank at 1180. Which makes me wonder why they built that standalone on Mulberry...would've been nicer to fill up one of those vacant storefronts the way BofA did.

I used to work for Commerce Bank before they were bought out by TD. With the exception of a few older branches, they would build all new construction every time. Whether it is true or not, I am not sure, but I remember when i first started they mentioned that every commerce bank branch had the exact same number of bricks.

I would imagine, b/c the one in Newark looks EXACTLY like every single former Commerce Bank (TDBank) I've been to. CB was my original love lol.
