Newark Broad Street is a NJ Transit commuter rail and light rail station at 25 University Avenue in Newark in Essex County, New Jersey, United States. Built in 1901-03 on the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad main line from Hoboken to Denville, Scranton and Buffalo, the station's historic architecture includes an elegant clock tower and a brick and stone façade on the station's main building.

History

Newark Broad Street opened on 19 November 1836 at the east end of the opening segment of the Morris and Essex Railroad to Orange; for the first couple of decades trains east of Newark ran over the New Jersey Rail Road to Jersey City. The Newark Drawbridge connecting to the station and crossing the Passaic River to the east was opened in 1903. A number of western expansions were built, and Hoboken Terminal, the current eastern end of the line, opened in 1907. In 1945, the Morris and Essex Railroad officially merged into the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad (its identity had been largely lost years before). DL&W merged with the Erie Railroad in 1960 to form the Erie Lackawanna Railroad, which was absorbed by Conrail in 1976; NJ Transit has operated all passenger service since 1983.

The station building has been listed in the state and federal registers of historic places since 1984[5] and is part of the Operating Passenger Railroad Stations Thematic Resource.[6]

Renovation

From 2004 to 2008 the station was renovated. The station changed from having 2 outside low platforms, with walkways across one track to the middle track, to having 2 high platforms, one of them an island platform, to facilitate cross-platform transfers. The historic westbound shelter was removed in the project and new westbound waiting areas were built.

Station layout and services

Broad Street Station is currently served by the Montclair-Boonton Line and both branches of the Morris and Essex Lines -- the Morristown Line and Gladstone Branch.

This station is also the northern terminus of the Newark Light Rail Broad Street Extension line from Newark Penn Station. Service on this line opened on July 17, 2006, although light rail service was unavailable from March through July 2008 due to a partial collapse of the former Westinghouse factory adjacent to the station during demolition.
