    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 boom and then the final decline of the country s manufacturing power Since 1947 Newark s port and airport a part of Ironbound have been taken over by the Port Authority to become the world s only comprehensive air rail sea infrastructural complex At the same time nobody seems to remember that Newark is a costal city while it declines into a mismanaged inward city However tonight s discussion was all about celebrating Ironbound s diverse enduring and ever optimistic people Walter Chambers closed the discussion by quoting the late Charles Cummings People will always be the most valuable resource of America The Newark History Society s event in May will be about the Star Ledger s history Author Ken Walker Posted on March 26 2010 Categories Featured Tags History Ironbound Newark History Society Zemin Zhang 2 Comments on Newark s Ironbound
