    to be permanent while the Dallas based company went into its fast global expansion during the Golden Era of massive deregulation under the Bush Administration The CEO Dr Ray Irani has lived a high life in Beverly Hills with a record annual earning of 460 million in 2006 For a bad year he made 59 million in 2009 Meanwhile Newark has developed Renaissance on a garbage heap as Johns Hopkins University researcher Eileen McGurty has called it The largest garbage incinerator opened in 1991 to process 930 000 tons of garbage annually Alan Gerson a New York City Council member representing Lower Manhattan complained about the incinerator air Some of the stench and toxins could waft right back to Manhattan on an easterly wind In our local Jersey struggling to dispose of municipal solid garbage the state and the county tried to entice Newark to allow more incinerators by throwing in an employment opportunity a jail also in the Ironbound As adjunct law professor of Seton Hall University Tirza Wahrman observed Another thing going on here is New Jerseyans don t feel a sense of ownership about Newark This typical urban American story will not be completed without mentioning its heroes With some other enduring Ironbound residents a young man Arnold Cohen started the Ironbound Committee Against Toxic Waste in 1983 Among many heroic pushing backs the committee sued the State DEP for its negligent inaction in 1984 In the past three decades his daughter has been born and has recently left home to attend Princeton University while his hair turned grey at the age of 62 I hope that my little Newarker daughter will some day join Arnold s daughter to carry the Committee s battle for a just and clean America Author Ken Walker Posted on March 31 2010 Categories Featured Tags Diamond Alkali Passaic River Pollution Zemin Zhang 1 Comment on Another American Experience at 80 Lister Ave Ironbound Newark s Ironbound An American Experience A few years ago when powerful developers and institutions planned to turn my James Street neighborhood into a giant corporate parking lot we started to search over the urban Tri State area for a new refuge Soon we happily concluded that one does not have to go as far as Astoria in Queens for a viable diverse and un gentrified community with a rich history that reflects our American experience individually and collectively It s found in our own Ironbound which was the subject for Monday s panel discussion organized by the Newark History Society In a small area of four square miles surrounded by a curve in the Passaic River and the Northern Corridor rail tracts the Ironbound has been the home for generations of working class Germans Italians Irish Eastern Europeans Jewish and African Americans In the past decades Portuguese dominated the area increasingly joined by Brazilians and other Hispanics However according to one of the panelist Maria Pereira of Luso Americano her nationally circulated newspaper found that 48 percent of Portuguese residents never responded to the 2000 Census Therefore the accurate size of the Ironbound population has always been a subject of speculation Many well known early American immigrant communities have been characterized by their extremely transient living For instance an average early immigrant family made Lower Eastside Manhattan its home for only eight months before its upward migration In contrast the Ironbound has retained many proud long term residents through Newark s ups and downs Another panelist Alice Schreiner a manager of Ironbound Senior Citizen Center was born at 102 Houston Street where her Polish American parents settled 59 years ago not far from their own parents After attending St Casimir Academy and Eastside High School she married and moved from the second floor to the first floor of the same building where she raised her four children Alice plans her next move only when the God calls me One of the organizers of tonight s discussion Nancy Zak once told me about her treasured Sunday morning family tradition having pancakes with her older upstairs neighbor Fighting for a stable American experience has kept her working at the Ironbound Community Corporation which will celebrate in the coming May over 40 years of community service The most endearing presentation was by Walter Chambers and Michael Underwood who grew up respectively in Ironbound s Pennington Court and Hyatt Court Homes two earliest Newark public housing projects While not glossing over their difficult circumstances they both enthusiastically celebrated their rich diverse experience both socially and culturally With an often ill single mother in the 1950 s Underwood enjoyed his freedom as an Ironbound Tom Sawyer As a child he roamed around neighborhood factories foundries and even the police auto pound where he learned from manufacturing workers about the real world Finding his love of railroads at Ironbound s edges he has become a Conrail locomotive engineer and a union leader Chambers a 78 years old African American distributed his brief history of Pennington Court 1939 1960 in which he quoted the 1940 statement by Neil Convery the accomplished Newark architect and first Newark Housing Authority director The housing program is truly American Twenty three nationalities and two races white and black are living in friendly neighborliness in a government aided project However that was long before the Real Estate Lobby as President Truman called it mobilized corporate powers to sabotage public housing and create the most economically and racially segregated housing market in the industrialized world As one of the participants pointed out Ironbound s ethnically diverse history was once well represented by over ten local newspapers of all languages Forward a progressive Yiddish newspaper still has its old building standing on Ferry Street Students of Newark history can also testify about Ironbound s reflection of national and regional politics through a century of turmoil For instance during the World War I Ironbound s Hamburg Place was changed into its current name Wilson Street The area closely witnessed the wartime industrial
