Demolitions in Newark’s historic districts are the new normal.
A plan is underway that could rebuild Newark's historic Kastner Mansion. The effort would restore the facade, keep the brownstone turret and signature portico, and eventually expand the building into the neighboring lot.
In 1890, the Kastners bought a plot of land in what was then the German district, and hired a talented, but lost-in-time architect to build them a "beer-baron mansion" with Franz’s initials – FJK – etched over the doorway, a feature that came crashing down earlier this year.
