Burger Walla & Cut Creators
These Halsey Street neighbors–one a unisex salon and the other a lauded burger joint, are part of a crop of new places that have come to the north end of Halsey Street in recent years. While there are more net new places on Halsey, locals also miss favorites like Coffee Cave and Art Kitchen.
The east side of Market Street has gained Novelty Burger, Mercato Tomato Pie, Krauszer’s, Chipotle and Redds Biergarten in recent years.
Off The Hanger boutique just celebrated its first year bringing fashion and home decor to the Halsey Street district.
Hahne & Company
Whole Foods Market opened in a renovated Hahne’s building on March 1st of this year. In the photo above, captured in November 2016, both Whole Foods and the Hahne’s building itself were well on their way to completion.
Broad and New Streets
This block was once home to the long-vacant S. Klein building. It is now the location of a Blaze Pizza, Starbucks, Nike Store (out of frame) and, as of earlier this year, Wok 2 Walk.
One block south, the new Prudential Tower now stands.
From Park Place, a view of Military Park before and after its $3 million renovation, which was completed in 2014.
Hotel Indigo debuted at the corner of Broad Street and Edison Place, also in 2014. The boutique hotel features Alva Tavern on the ground floor and Skylab, a rooftop bar with views of Newark and Manhattan.
The mixed-use Teacher’s Village development is making over the southern end of Halsey Street. It features residences, retail, and a charter school.
This corner breakfast and lunch spot is located directly across the street from soon-to-come Rutgers University honors housing and ground-level retail.
