Take a peak at this article as you might find it interesting with its relevance to your yearn to control at KEWR. I frequent the area during my daily travels to job sites and for years aircraft would fly over vehicles on the New Jersey Turnpike but an incident lead to the FAA proceeding with a halt in previous habits and practices. See the following article: http://www.nj.com/news/index.ssf/2014/05/post_352.html

“The FAA has investigated the recent air traffic incident at Newark and has taken steps to prevent similar incidents from occurring in the future,” the agency said in a statement. “The FAA has stopped using Runway 29 at Newark-Liberty International Airport for arrivals when flights are departing on Runway 4R.”
Hopefully I can join in your ATC training there.
Best of Luck, Chris Levet
