Many robberies and shootings take place in this area. Although police officers are visible at times, that does not hinder the violence and other activities that occur. There are guys on street corners selling narcotics at all times of the day despite who may be witnessing them.. After a while you start to feel as if you cannot walk anywhere without having to look over your shoulder at all times.And for those who do walk the streets, they look as if they are up to something. Anything can happen in the city of Newark at anytime.. ANYTIME! At this point not even the police have authority. Having a squad car on each corner wouldn't even change the activities that take place. As each day passes it seems as if individual loses remorse for others which causes this reckless behavior to continue.

Living in Newark,NJ is honestly not very good. There are a LOT of crimes,mostly shootings that occur, often on a daily basis. It is not very safe for residents to live. Some people are afraid to walk the streets for fear that they may be the next innocent victim of a bullet. If I had a choice I would not choose to live here. I don't see this city getting any better in the future. I truly hope there are some positive changes that happen in Newark, however I will not be living here to find out. As I go off to college this year I will be going away from Newark, for good!
Here in Newark,NJ there are multiple shootings that occur throughout the city. A lot of innocent people are injures and often times killed by stray bullets. I don't want to completely put the police down, but usually they most likely come minutes later after a crime has been committed, leaving plenty of time for the perpetrator to disappear from the crime scene. It is not very safe on the streets.
