I would totally choose to live here again. The atmosphere is great. The safe school environment is what I want my future kids to be in. This area is quiet, safe, loving, family oriented, and overall just a great community.

Overall, I'm not a fan of Newark. There is almost a complete lack of diversity. There are few attractions or activities and anyhting else is miles away. It has very little going for it due to the lack of opportunities.
