The South Broad St., NJ Community


Broad St. was the original main thoroughfare for Newark and is believed to have derived from an Indian trail that extended from Cape May north. The thoroughfare was 8 rods or 132 feet wide and followed the bend of the Passaic River. It was established in 1666, when the original city of Newark was founded.

Broad St. extended in a straight line to Trinity/St. Philips, before following the bend of the river left and then continuing north to the Plume House and Clay Street.

The South Broad St. community is home to Lincoln Park. Originally named “South Common,” the picturesque space was renamed after President Abraham Lincoln gave a speech at the location in 1861.

A number of statues are located in the park, including “An Historical Incident of November, 1764” by Chauncey Ives, which was created in 1884 and depicts a woman who has been forced to choose between her mother and her Native American husband.

In 1923, another statue, “Planting the Standard of Democracy” by Charles Henry Niehaus was unveiled in the park in tribute to the thousands of soldiers and sailors who lost their lives in World War l, although, curiously, the statue depicts Roman soldiers raising the U.S. flag.

Self-Storage Facilities Near South Broad St., NJ


Why Choose Storage Post

After 7.5 months of gloom, you’re going to want to pack away the warm blankets and sweaters and take advantage of the sunny skies while you can. All those bulky blankets, sweaters and coats can take up a lot of space, and one easy solution is to rent a self-storage locker.

Since humidity and fabric are a bad combination, you should consider a climate-controlled option to guard against temperature fluctuations that can damage your possessions.

Did you know that a self-storage unit can be a great solution for small and medium businesses? These units are much more affordable than most commercial rent and provide space for inventory, supplies and equipment or even act as an additional work area. You are not allowed to live in a storage unit, though.

Many of our Storage Post locations include units on the ground level that allow you to drive up, load and unload right into and out of your vehicle and be on your way.

Our locations have state-of-the-art security measures, including 24/7/365 security cameras, digital access codes and motion-activated lighting. Many locations are also fenced and gated, and the access code operates the gate. Safety first!

Come and chat with our helpful staff at any of our locations to see how we can help you with your self-storage needs.
