I think this is the appropriate forum to post, but let me know if it's not.
One of my classes this past semester was Introduction to American Urban History, and our grade relied soley on a term paper. For the paper, I chose to research how Newark Airport--20 minutes from where I grew up--has changed, from when it was first planned in the 1920s through the most recent construction.
In doing so, I learned such interesting things as EWR being the busiest airport in the world for nearly a decade, as well as the airport to begin testing ILS systems.
I hope you enjoy the paper, and let me know what you think. If there are any corrections, I'd be especially grateful--I'm looking into publishing it in a NJ History journal, or somewhere else appropriate.
