Location[edit]

Northern State Prison, Ironbound, Newark. Across I-78 from Newark Liberty Airport.

Participants[edit]

Jevanyn, along with about a thousand unknowing commuters, and an unknown number of convicts.

Plans[edit]

Jevanyn will attempt to get a picture from the train. (Geohash itself is inaccessible.)

Expedition[edit]

  • Well, there is no way to get into the prison (I'm not Batman), but I should have line of sight from the train on my commute home. I'll be within a mile to the west. (Closer train tracks are freight.) -- Jevanyn 10:24, 12 February 2013 (EST)

Granted, I didn't go anywhere I wouldn't have normally been, but I did attempt to get a photograph of the area of the geohash, so there was a geohashing effort. Lame, I know, but it was interesting in as much as the geohash was 1) in the city where I was, and for which the graticule is named, and 2) it was close enough to my regularly traveled route, that I could potentially achieve line-of-sight to the "campus".

Tracklog[edit]

My "track" will be the Raritan Valley Line, thank you :-)
