Very nice. When I go to NYC, I usually park in Newark and ride the PATH train into town.

One of the highest rates of cancer in the country because of all the refineries.

Nice tour of a very under represented city!

When I lived in New Jersey 15 years ago, we'd go into Ironbound every now and then for dinner. They had lots of pretty good Spanish restaurants along Ferry Street (or Market Street). It felt safe back then and was just on the other side of the RR tracks from DT. That may be another place to check out!

Source?

Is this some Jersey myth you heard from your neighbors who drove through on the turnpike? because I went to wikipedia, google, and City-data.com and found nothing except:


Newark black men had age-adjusted cancer rates comparable to those of Washington, D. C., but lower than the other three American city blacks. Rates for Newark black women were generally similar to other American black women. American blacks, like those of Newark, had cancer rates higher than the African blacks in three out of four countries studied. Only blacks of Rhodesia had cancer experience like that of American blacks. Except for cancer of the cervix, the African blacks had generally lower rates compared to the American blacks for the ten sites investigated. However, high rates did occur for certain sites, e.g., esophagus and bladder cancers in Bulawayo, Rhodesia. Newark blacks also had higher rates for certain sites (prostate, lung, breast and cervix) compared to Washington, D. C., and certain other U. S. cities. Thus, the total risk of malignancies to develop among Newark blacks was no greater than that expected, based upon the four U. S. cities' experience.
_______
Which bascially means the cancer rates in Newark are about normal. This is from the National Library of Medicine and the National Institute of Health. This was a national and international comparison so I guess the 3 cities they didnt mention are in the U.S. and Africa.

My birthplace is looking good. I will always love Newark. So many great memories as a kid growing up there. I remember my first day of kindergarden at Maple Avenue School. Thanks for the memories.

It sure does! The only subway system in New Jersey. Like everyone said, great potential and hopefully the new Devils arena will foster some of the revitalization.

^ just curious. Are there going to be some associated parking structures with the new arena? Seems to be located in a fairly dense area from the looks of the pic.

Newark is one of those cities that is better than its reputation. It will get better, too. So close to all that pricey Manhatten real estate! What an enviable place to be.

I beg to differ. While I was pleasantly surprised the first time I was through the Ironbound, Newark absolutely deserves its reputation. Outside of its 9-5 office district downtown and a few government-sponsored "culture" projects, there ain't much there. It's pretty much Detroit- miles and miles of bombed out early 20th century tract housing, brownfields, grayfields, empty factories the size of cathedrals. Harrison will probably end up becoming the place to move, since its currently basically a blank slate with a PATH station in the middle of it, and without Newark's corrupt, stagnant government, it will probably be easier to redevelop. The Ironbound is a fairly well-kept Spanish/Italian/Portugese neighborhood, but it's small- Elizabeth and New Brunswick have more street life. Some of the vacant land is filling back in with low-income housing, but it generally just a modern version what Jane Jacobs would call the "gray areas" that made up most of Newark back in the day- vinyl two-flats with a garage on the first floor, set back from the street, no retail, doomed to fail as they age.

Dowtown Newark will probably come back, it's well set up to do so, and some of the 1920s office towers near Penn Station are already being converted to condos. But a lot of the rest of the city basically need to be rebuilt from scratch, and so far they're doing a bad job with that.

The Newark City Subway is actually pretty interesting. It was built in an old canal bed that was roofed over to create Raymond Boulevard. It was built as a subway-surface trunk for trolleys, like the Green Lines in Philly or Boston. The surface routes were discontinued a long time ago, but the ramps still remain, and maybe one day they can be rebuilt if the city fills in right. They recently opened a surface extension to the DL&W Broad Street station that also serves the baseball stadium.

I guess my point is, Newark does indeed have a lot of potential, but it's a couple decades before it's going to approach anything close to 'healthy'.
