New Jersey Hotel Reservations
Giant Steel Hockey Player
As you embark upon your next trek through New Jersey, be sure to include some time spent in Newark. Here, you'll want to pay a visit to the Prudential Center, where, if you've got a keen eye, can spot the Giant Steel Hockey Player. Nicknamed The Iron Man by locals, this art installation stands at 22 feet tall and weighs in at 6,000 pounds.
The enormous hockey player is the work of New Jersey-born artist Jon Krawczyk. It was installed in 2009, and is a tribute to the local favorite hockey team the New Jersey Devils, who play all home games at the Prudential Center. Make a whole day of it in Newark – visit during the fall, see the Giant Steel Hockey Player, and then catch the Devils take the ice.
