Park Place was a terminal of the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad (H&M) located at the intersection of Park Place and Centre Street in Newark, New Jersey, across the street from Military Park nearby Newark Public Service Terminal. The terminal opened on November 26, 1911, after the H&M extended its line westward from Grove Street in Jersey City to Summit Avenue, Manhattan Transfer, and over the Centre Street Bridge to Newark. The terminal closed on June 20, 1937, after the H&M tracks were realigned to serve the new Newark Penn Station.[1][2]

The H&M was taken over by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey in 1962, the system becoming Port Authority Trans-Hudson, known as PATH. The New Jersey Performing Arts Center is sited on the location of the terminal adjacent to Newark Light Rail's NJPAC/Center Street Station.
