Newark International Airport, Brewster Hangar, Brewster Road between Route 21 & New Jersey Turnpike Exchange No. 14, Newark, Essex County, NJ
Significance: Part of Newark International Airport, Brewster Hangar was unique at the time it was built due to unusually large doors with electronic controls, large overall size (1054 ft long x 150 ft wide, with three interior sections), and the fact that the interior was heated to prevent warping of aircraft struts and wings. The Brewster Hangar also contained a locker room, garage, boiler room, stock room, and machine shop. Most notably, the hangar was the assembly site of the airplane the Brewster "Buffalo", a DC3 that saw action in the Battle of Midway during World War II.
