Lincoln Park, Newark, New Jersey

Final Studio I project completed by Aran Baker and Monique Baena-Tan for the Fall 2013 semester. They emphasize that “this city has its stories, histories, epics, musics, mosaics, and anecdotal archives, most sunken and forgotten. Time to dredge them up.” They explored this neighborhood’s particular history from the community perspective, and researched the implications that the Lincoln Coast Cultural District, established in 2002, has had on this historic neighborhood and its inhabitants.
