A jewel in downtown Newark. NJPAC has something for every age group from kids to the elderly. Great shows, easy parking and public transportation, safe and beautiful. Recommended highly.

I absolutely love the NJPAC. The place is beautiful and the seats are comfortable. I will wait to see a show or concert here rather than somewhere else. You can buy parking in advance and its not a far walk.

I've attended several shows held at NJPAC and I've enjoyed everyone. The venue is clean and modern, parking is next door with security. I've never felt intimidated,scared or that I should be concerned about my safety, I will attend more events held at this venue.
