NDD Hidden Gems Series

The NDD Hidden Gems Series provides local businesses the opportunity to gain new exposure through NDD’s social media platforms. Downtown is filled with many hidden gems and underrated spots.

As part of this social media campaign, users submit their favorite Hidden Gem via email or direct message for the chance to be chosen and featured on NDD’s page! Submissions include the business name and information, pictures of the storefront and products and/or services, and why that business is a Hidden Gem. Winners are chosen on a monthly basis from May to October.

For information on the Hidden Gems Series, contact Marketing@downtownnewark.com.

Pedestrian Mall

During the summer, the NDD has implemented temporary pedestrian malls in different locations in Downtown Newark to transform streets into walkable, pedestrian-friendly urban spaces. By blocking off vehicular traffic, these open spaces provide the Downtown community with better access to retail stores, more seating amenities, and activities to socialize and enjoy the outdoors with neighbors and colleagues.

The 2019 NDD Pedestrian Mall, Washington Place Wednesdays, offered information tables, free yoga sessions, a pop-up shop, food vendors, games, and live music. The mall provided a temporary space for the Downtown community to eat, socialize, play, and enjoy the warm weather during lunchtime.

If you are a Downtown business or organization that is interested in participating in a summer NDD Pedestrian Mall, contact Urban Planner Mbacke N. Faye at mbacke@downtownnewark.com.
