December 17, 2007

The [Newark] Star-Ledger photographed construction of the new Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, over a period of three years and has posted a time-lapse online. The arena, opened in November, is steps away from the intersection of Broad and Market, a famed crossroads and traditionally one of the most congested intersections along the Lincoln Highway. The view is looking south, with Broad (the Lincoln Highway) to the right. The video is by Bumper DeJesus: click the image to open the Star Ledger page, where you can then click to start the video..

The Prudential Center hosts the NHL’s New Jersey Devils, Seton Hall Men’s Basketball, New Jersey Ironmen indoor soccer team, concerts, and special events. It is bounded by Edison Place to the north, Lafayette Street to the south, Mulberry Street to the east and Broad Street and City Hall to the west. Total cost was $375 million for a capacity of approximately 18,000 depending on the event. Outside, a 4,800 sq. ft. LED television faces Newark’s Penn Station. It was built where the large parking lot is seen on the Google map below. The Lincoln follows the yellow trace along Broad and Market streets.
