South Ironbound Reviews

2
Newark is different from many places in NJ in several ways. The community is diverse and allows for different opportunities and styles of living. However, the crime rate and the public safety is often come in to question. Those governing tend to focus on only the worst parts of the community forgetting that all need equal help. With several different districts within the city the focus lies in only a few while others are forgotten. Police presence is something that is also not up to par. Several times while reporting crimes or reaching out for help, the police don't even respond as they are understaffed and over worked.

Crime rates in the community are horrendous. Drugs and violence are a very real and active part of this community. Being aware of your surroundings is always a must and very few feel safe to even take walks around the neighborhood.
