New Murals Coming to Newark

Newark, New Jersey: A possible extension of the PATH train through Newark could be years away, but development of a new mural along the tracks is beginning soon.

According to the Newark Downtown District, the District, the City of Newark, and the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation will partner with local and international airports and Sherwin-Williams to create the second largest mural in the country. The mural will be located along the wall on McCarter Highway/Route 21 next to the tracks used by NJ Transit, Amtrak, and PATH just south of Newark Penn Station.

In addition, murals could also be coming to two train stations along the Morris and Essex NJ Transit line. The South Orange Performing Arts Center and the Valley Arts District are applying for a grant to install murals under the South Orange Train Station and at the Highland Avenue Train Station in Orange.
