Day off for the day off

Back from NJ after watching Marquette take care of Seton Hall. A looooooonnnnnnngggggg drive back in 4-6 inches of slush/freezing rain/mess up 95 North. Working on very little sleep.

Interesting facts about Newark:
Founded by Robert Treat. He had a bunch of famous family members and a hotel.

Prudential has a BIG part of the city make up.

Old First Church is still the name of the first old church. They do have mass in Spanish now

Third oldest city.

Plenty of old, burnt out, boarded up buildings. Seemingly one on every block I walked along.

Overall rebuilding helps since both the NJPAC and Pru Center are impressive.
