So it started with Jon Bon Jovi playing a string of shows to open the Prudential Center. Next we have Forrest Whitaker announcing a documentary about Newark, Queen Latifah and Wyclef Jean on a foreclosure prevention bus tour, Shaquille O’Neill & Friends developing luxury buildings, and now the latest… Drum-roll please… Brad Pitt comes to Newark to build homes.
Apparently Mr. Pitt wants to come to Newark to add on to the work he has done in New Orleans to help with the rebuilding after Katrina.
I say great! The more eyes turn to the plight of inner cities the better for everyone.
