First Landing Party of Founder's

  • 1 Center Street, Newark, NJ 07102


The "First Landing Party of the Founders of Newark" was flat on its back underneath a badly worn tarp. It looked like a piece of junk on a city-owned lot at Newark's division of traffic signals. No one could tell that it was one of four important statues in Newark created by Gutzon Borglum, a famous sculptor and artist best known for his work at the Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
