Dynamite in the Neighborhood 1903

It may have been just a coincidence, but in the years immediately after this incident, East Orange city leaders began pushing for well-equipped city playgrounds with one expressed purpose being to get boys off the streets.  

From The Evening World, December 24, 1903

Principal Coe was principal of Columbian School for 44 years and also a long time resident of the Stockton neighborhood.
