Square footage of new NJ Hall of Fame

The New Jersey Hall of Fame is to get a permanent home, and a pretty fancy one at that — a 16,000-square-foot facility in American Dream Meadowlands, the entertainment-retail complex that’s been under construction on and off for years in East Rutherford. Tom Bracken, president of the NJ Chamber of Commerce, said the hall is “a great way for New Jersey to put its best foot forward and celebrate some of its most accomplished citizens.” Residents of the Garden State can nominate anyone they fancy for the honor of membership in the hall. Last year’s inductees included writer Harlan Coben; singers Gloria Gaynor, Debbie Harry, and the Four Seasons; astronauts Mark and Scott Kelly; and in the sports category, Al Leiter and Carli Lloyd.
