Newark officials and New Community employees gathered at 14th Avenue and Jones Street June 14 for an afternoon ceremony dedicating 14th Avenue to NCC Founder Monsignor William J. Linder, who passed away last June.
A new sign reads “Monsignor William J. Linder Way” to commemorate the work he did in the area and for the people in the community.
Council Vice President and Councilman at Large Luis A. Quintana sponsored the resolution to rename the street and hosted the event.
Established in the midst of civil unrest in Newark in 1968, New Community was founded by Monsignor William J. Linder and a small group of civic-minded residents.
