There are few things more quintessentially Jersey than going to a Bruce Springsteen show in the middle of summer. And those who made the ride up to the Meadowlands on Tuesday weren't only treated an E Street Band concert on a perfect summer evening, but it was his longest show ever in the U.S.
The Meadowlands Sports And Entertainment Complex could be down a venue, and soon. If some lawmakers have their way, the former home of the Devils and Nets could be closing as early as the end of this month.
Looking to spur job creation and economic growth in northern New Jersey while also eliminating government bureaucracy by merging two major state agencies, Assembly Speaker Vinnie Prieto (D-Secaucus) said he plans to introduce a Meadowlands region reform measure. The bill would also change the tax sharing system used by 14 area towns.
