There are some reasons why Newark doesn't make sense

For one thing land is extremely expensive on the bay. It is also not an arid desert. The main benefit of the seawater greenhouse is that it provides a critical source of freshwater and the ability to grow food in times and places where it would otherwise be impossible not to mention you can build it on dirt cheap saline intruded land that no one wants. Also I'm not so sure it would even make sense to cool and humidify crops in this climate given that it is not extremely hot and dry.
