Not so unusual. LH has flown the 747 into Newark (-200) for a long time. Usually, the Munich and Dusseldorf flights were operated with the A340 and the Frankfurt flight was a 747-200.
Fedex has lots of DC10's serving Newark. They use Newark more than any other New York Area airport and have a large operation there.
ATA has flown to Newark for some time and recently expanded with flights to Chicago/Midway.
Eva Air of Taiwan flies several times a week from Newark to Taipei via Vancouver, late at night, using the 747-400 and along with Singapore Airlines and until September 11th, MAS, the only other Asian airline to service Newark.

U2's Elevation tour 727 was parked in front of Signature aviations hangar on Sunday (it's probably still there), you can't see it though from the airside because it's behind the new Port Authority Administration building being built.
EWR is a huge hub for Fed Ex, EWR is the largest entry point for packages into their system. UPS has a big presence at EWR too, two of the seven frequencies to China UPS was recently awarded are for direct flights from EWR-Beijing and Shanghai with 747s.
