The city of Newark is okay for the most part. Yes we are still working on some things to make our city better but we aren't looking at what's really important, and that is the people in our community. the death rates are raising every month, people are dying left and right, and most of all we the people of the community do not work together to creat a strong, better Newark.

I've lived here since I can remember.nrhe neighbors are very friendly and everyone looks out for each other if they see someone in need of help or anything else. Everybody interacts with One another and the neighborhood is just peaceful and quiet.
There are not a lot of restaurants in my area but there are in the town twenty minutes minutes away walking distance. There are a couple of chain restaurants and small privately owned restaurants but unfortunately they tend close after a few months or years, never long term.
