We came last week for the Celtic Woman concert. We liked the venue. It is a quite large facility so even pretty expensive seats will have a "long distance" view. Traffic into the parking lot was acceptable, but expectedly, everyone leaves at the same time,...More

I've been there many, many times and always thought it was a very nice venue. There is plenty of parking as long as you are willing to pay which is rather pricey.

I went there to watch a show and was surprised how easy it was to park (across the street) The building is clean and spacious and the seats were comfortable. Pleasant experience!

NJPAC is one of the best venues in the Northeast for plays, musical performances and just about any visual/musical performance. The acoustics are perfect, as are the sight lines. Parking is close and reasonable. The area is very safe.

Yes, take PATH to Newark. Then you have two or three long blocks to walk.
