Wanna Learn More About North Plainfield?

Then read "Images of America: North Plainfield," by Mario Caruso, Bruce Ryno and Joann Kobler. Parts of it are available online at Google. The book includes photos of places on Somerset Street (see Somerset School above taken in November) as well as chapters on early history, floods, fires, churches, schools and the five free Bruce Springsteen concerts performed on the NPHS lawn during the summer of 1974. (Uh....maybe that last fact is wrong.) The chapters I read online are terrific and I especially enjoyed looking at the ancient maps.
