    Bloomfield Central Avenues as county roads many sidewalks were further narrowed or even eliminated Many ordinances were adopted against traffic problems such as uniform traffic control 1915 street parking bans 1921 and one way streets 1940 In the 1920 s Police Director Brennan the father of our beloved U S Superior Court Justice was the most hated figure in town for his traffic law enforcement The great German historian Oswald Spengler who chronicled the decline of the West observed as early as 1932 In great cities the motor car has by its numbers destroyed its own value and one gets on quicker on foot Twenty years later however the magic machine reached its new pinnacle in American with an average of three persons owning a car compared with one out of every 20 Britons owning a car Optimistic city planners are divided into two camps like today Some are confident that cities can build their way out of their decline by making them more auto friendly using further regulatory tools providing plentiful and convenient parking and building express highways into the city center Sound familiar Newark The other school was represented by Victor Gruen a refugee from Vienna who hated cars and loved old cities He proposed a wide ring road outside the city center with an archipelago of commuter parking an underground freight delivering network and an efficient bus system to reduce traffic pressure His new American downtown would be a car free mall attracting diverse interests such as churches offices and educational institutions In the late 1950 s Newark commissioned Gruen for a comprehensive study on its downtown and for the design of Gateway One From a Newark Evening News report one can see that Gruen did a very decent job educating the public For a long time he pedestrian was the forgotten man in the soaring dreams of the City Beautiful The plan often sounded as though tomorrow s town was expected to have no people only skyscrapers and unbroken streams of swift traffic With the power of automobiles and anti urban national policies however Gruen was and still is too remote to Newark s business people politicians and most planners Leslie Blau one of the most influential businessmen in town predicted in 1957 The construction of the east west freeway Rt 280 together with additional garages and adjusted downtown taxes will wipe out most of the store vacancies greatly improve existing business bring more business People want to drive to the shopping area At the time Downtown Newark still had five department stores Bamberger s Hahne s Chase S Klein and Ohrbach s Pasqual Guerrieri the president of Kresge Chase and Chairman of the Newark Parking Authority predicted with the Military Park underground parking Millions of dollars will be spent here They will go into payroll supplies and into the general stream of the economy Bamberger President David Yunich said that Newark is looking forward to its fair share in the space age from visiting consumer and capital expenditures The auto oriented prosperity or revitalization in today s term enthusiastically used by politicians has never really happened While Newarkers like to boast of its great transportation advantages in the past 100 years highways and automobiles actually drained the urban center in favor of peripheral areas where driving and parking were less arduous Before World War II Le Corbusier the great creator of the Radiant City enjoyed driving with his lover in her powerful Ford V8 towards Newark He noted the sky way so called for the way its enormous length rises high above the industrial districts the coastal bays the railroad lines A roadway without art for no thoughts of that was taken but a prodigious tool He did not know that as early as 1926 Newark s chief engineer James Costello had to launch a showdown with the State Highway Commission against the design and the intention of this prodigious tool the Pulaski Skyway which had no point of access to the city of Newark From the beginning highway construction aimed for sprawl and decentralization For instance for highway funding in 1930 Ocean County got 410 percent of its tax dollars Sussex and Hunterdon 324 percent and 333 percent respectively while Essex got only 37 percent Federal and state legislation further deprived Newark s funding for road construction In the 1930 s under the County Engineer Stickel Essex County took over ten county roads beyond High Street MLK Blvd to better serve suburban needs Under the economic boom with massive highway construction after World War II a large number of Boomtowns mushroomed in New Jersey For instance by 1950 New Providence original Turkey Town a country hamlet had expanded threefold in 20 years becoming the home of engineers research scientists technicians and sales personnel in general young people with families and definite ideas about local affairs Following Bell Labs that settled in New Providence large and small corporations located along highways such as Ciba Pharmaceuticals in Summit and Standard Oil in Linden Even the native institution the Newark Academy followed young families to pastoral Livingston As Frank Lloyd Wright prescribed for his Broadacre City every family lives in an individual house at the equivalent of the lowest suburban densities linked by universal car ownership and fast roads As a Chinese proverb said No banquet will be endless The good life in Bo bo land La la land or wonderland is finally coming to an end under economic and environmental constraints We even get an urban president in the White House as we have all hoped for More and more suburban towns have started serious efforts to build more dense and pedestrian friendly centers particularly along mass transit lines That has not happened in Newark In the City Council meeting a week ago the Chancellor of our urban university addressed his ambition to grow the school by constructing 3 500 new parking spaces on the city s best land for transit oriented community development indeed the
