Another Byrne tribute where no teams play

Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo will announce a proposal today to name the promenade between the Essex County Veterans Courthouse and the jurors parking lot as the Governor Brendan T. Byrne Plaza – a tribute to the 84-year-old former Governor, Essex County Prosecutor and Superior Court Judge. Byrne also has a state forest named after him in the Pinelands, but no sports arena: his name was taken off the arena in 1994, after the Republicans reclaimed control of state government.
