Guests at the October 11, 1989 groundbreaking ceremony for the new Laboratory listen to one of the speakers. The new Laboratory, to be built across the street from Building 74, was a 36,000 square foot facility with a 32,000 gallon research aquarium that was fully constructed by 1993. The Laboratory’s namesake, James J. Howard, was the New Jersey 3rd District Congressional Representative and strong advocate of having the Laboratory remain in New Jersey after the original Laboratory campus was destroyed by arson in September 1985. The state-of-the art Laboratory was funded by the State of New Jersey, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and was designed to be consistent with the historic Fort Hancock district of Sandy Hook.
