Whether you are looking to rent an apartment, find a charter school or excellent daycare center for your child, play an evening game of basketball in a state-of-the-art gymnasium, or come to a great place to eat, shop and just hang out, Teachers Village offers first-class amenities in a walkable downtown.
Teachers Village is the nucleus of a thriving downtown arts and education district. Multiple galleries and artist enclaves exist along the Halsey Street corridor, which extends north from the City Without Walls (cWOW) gallery in Lincoln Park to the Newark Museum on Washington Park, encompassing such diverse offerings as Gallery Aferro on Market Street; the Barat Foundation; GlassRoots glass studio on Bleeker Street; Rutgers University Paul Robeson Galleries; and the Aljira Contemporary Art Center Military Park.
Teachers Village is surrounded by six universities with a community of 50,000 people, each with its own library and cultural facilities. There is also great potential for collaboration between Teachers Village and the surrounding corporate and academic community. Outreach to the universities as well as to leading corporate and institutional entities such as Audible.com, Panasonic, Prudential, PSE&G, Verizon, four major hospitals and UMDNJ Science Park, will enable Teachers Village to incubate and generate ideas and working capital within the community; and most importantly to learn and earn the skills necessary for the 21st century.
Smart classrooms integrated within the various residential buildings provide yet another opportunity for offering after-hours classes, in arts, technology and design — or simply to advance one’s degree.
