What's NJIT thinking?
Letter to the editor
I cannot believe that the New Jersey Institute of Technology is going to renovate Newark’s Central High School on the Rutgers-Newark Campus, which it has acquired. It has to be one of the ugliest, most completely obsolete buildings that has ever had the misfortune of being erected. It has no redeeming significance since it has basically been the scene of an ongoing disaster for decades. I always dreamed of the day I would be able to watch them implode that eyesore, as I had to walk past it almost everyday as an undergraduate. It has to be a lot cheaper to start from scratch and build a brand-spanking new building. Now, we will be saddled with the debt and the horrible building for a very long time. What were they thinking?
