I've lived in Newark for 4 years now. This city has gotten a lot better than when I first came here. Lots of building going on here. Lots of houses being renovated here. Warrant squads are out and doing there thing. Many places where there were people hanging out on the street have been cleaned up. Many working people are moving here from NYC because of the much lower rents. People are buying houses here and are easy to obtain just as long as you have a good credit score, like 620 and up and you can show a work history of at least 2 - 3 years. Lots of businesses are moving into Newark now creating jobs. East Orange, Elizabeth, Union, Paterson and other cities are all being built up and the same thing that is happening here and happened in Jersey City and Hoboken is going on. New Jersey is making a come back.
So I lived in Newark basically my whole entire life and what I have to say from experience living here is that Newark does deserve to go on that list but not as #2 on the list because there are some bad parts and some good parts I live in the southern part of Newark which we call the Ironbound section of Newark and it is a wonderful place to live in there are many parks and schools and easy to travel to New York City. The bad parts of Newark where there is crime is the north and not to be racist or mean but that part houses ghetto people and i go to school in that area I am afraid of even walking home but once I reach the Ironbound I walk freely and in peace. This is just my point of view of Newark.
I live in Newark. Plus Newark is not bad at all
Plenty of colleges in and around Newark, our newspapers and emails are currently spammed about the student that got robbed, mugged, or murdered recently. Pretty gross city overall, drivers in the area are morons.
Avoid Newark NJ at all costs. No redeeming qualities.
there are no crimes and it has a very pleasant atmosphere and it also has a school and the local governance is good
liberty state park is my favorite place to hang out and new port is the best area to visit
I stopped in the city because I was driving to New York. The city is like a tremble, very old and people are not so nice. I went to a convenient store and everyone was looking at me weird because I was probably in the wrong neighborhood. I felt very unwelcome, therefore I decided to drive off and not stay in a hotel there.
There was no good thing about this town. Everything looked destroyed. The stores were so old and most gas stations smelled like pee. The whole neighborhood had shady people. I would not recommend staying at this place.
There are schools, colleges and several indian stores.
Niagra is my favourite place. It is awesome
