New Jersey Hall of Fame transportation promotional campaign makes latest stop at NJ TRANSIT station

The New Jersey Hall of Fame’s latest stop in its transportation promotional campaign is NJ TRANSIT’s Secaucus Junction Station, where high-quality banners of some of the hall’s accomplished inductees are now on display.

Promotional images can be viewed at transit stations statewide including service areas along the Garden State Parkway and New Jersey Turnpike, and at Newark Liberty International Airport and the NY Waterway, according to New Jersey Hall of Fame Chairman Jon F. Hanson.

NJ TRANSIT is pleased to partner with the New Jersey Hall of Fame in this celebration of the individuals who have made New Jersey such a special and unique state, and to be able to share it with the hundreds of thousands of customers and first-time visitors who pass through Secaucus every year,” NJ TRANSIT President & CEO Kevin S. Corbett said.

The New Jersey Hall of Fame inductees featured at Secaucus Junction are a who’s who of some of the Garden State’s best and brightest, including Yogi Berra, Dionne Warwick, Frank Sinatra, Gloria Gaynor, Laurie Hernandez, Judy Blume, Albert Einstein, and many more.

Michael Graves Architecture & Design, a renowned and award-winning firm, designed all the posters.

“Our latest installation at Secaucus Junction is part of a statewide effort to celebrate New Jersey, honor our legends and inspire our children,” First Lady Tammy Murphy said. “Our inductees are the ultimate symbol of Jersey pride, and we are grateful to NJ TRANSIT for the opportunity to honor their tremendous accomplishments.”

Senator Patrick J. Diegnan Jr., who chairs the Senate Transportation Committee, praised all who brought the promotional campaign to life, including Hanson and New Jersey Hall of Fame President Steve Edwards.

“This beautiful new installation at Secaucus Junction will undoubtedly inspire the many New Jerseyans who pass through its hallways every day,” Diegnan said. “This collaboration between NJ TRANSIT and the New Jersey Hall of Fame has been a tremendous success, and I look forward to seeing what they have planned in the weeks and months to come.”

In July, Gov. Phil Murphy announced the New Jersey Turnpike Authority would rename nine service areas along the Garden State Parkway after iconic New Jersey Hall of Fame inductees in the arts, entertainment, and sports.

“This is about putting New Jersey greatness on full display,” Murphy said at the time of the announcement. “This is the first part of an extended statewide exhibition of New Jersey heroes throughout our state. From military heroes on the Battleship New Jersey to historical figures on the New Jersey Turnpike to science and technology trailblazers at Newark Penn Station, New Jerseyans will find pride in our contributions to society and the world.”

The Parkway service area exhibitions further extend the New Jersey Hall of Fame’s statewide network of museums, exhibits and poster installations in partnership with Newark Liberty International Airport, NJ TRANSIT, Battleship New Jersey, Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce, and the New Jersey Motor Vehicle Commission.
