Bloomfield, NJ, March 2020: On March 24, join Bloomfield historian Richard Rockwell as he explores the impact the Garden State Parkway had on the township of Bloomfield when it was built in the 1950s. Through historical photos, maps and newspaper articles, explore the controversies and protests surrounding the project, as well as the hundreds of houses that were demolished or moved to make way for the GSP. Love it or hate it, you’ll be fascinated by the history of the Garden State Parkway through Bloomfield.

The event is free and open to the public.
