I'm thinking more of the flight paths over portions of Ironbound. Seems a tad bit close.
East Ward , Harrison , East Newark , Kearny , Hackensack and Bayonne have caps... But Downtown Newark is free , there are no approach paths over it... Its mostly infill now , but that ramps up demand and everything has been filling up fast... Im not comfortable with SOMA project being so far away from the Main Train stations , I rather see it near Broad Street on those empty lots and spill over to the North Ward...but that's a separate plan which about to break ground soon..
