I really enjoy the small population of people we have here. You know all of your neighbors, peers, and pretty much anyone who lives in Newark. Everyone is like a family. However, what I would like to see the change is the growth of businesses. Businesses are having a difficult time thriving in Newark. As I mentioned earlier, we are a small town and often people are not willing to spend as much money as they might need to. Most people have a poor-average income, which makes it very difficult for them to spend money on good quality services. I really want to see this town grow. We need more businesses, marketplaces, and give people reasons to stay in Newark or perhaps move here!

Newark has changed over the years and honestly there are more problems here than in the past. Nevertheless, there is quality healthcare, a Wegmans, a variety of stores, and a quality school district in town. Living is affordable. Overall, I feel my children received a good education at the Newark schools with few issues/safety concerns and they got into excellent colleges; the school offers so many opportunities and my children took ahold of them. People need to seek out, take advantage of, and support what this town/the school offers, which many citizens in Newark unfortunately never do.
Moved here from Lyons, ny, almost 2 years now . In Lyons , daycare was very limited . Here you have way more daycares available. There’s also always something to do with your kids. A quiet neighborhood and very safe. It’s a few places for adult night life to choose from. Mainly local bars and a bowling alley! I would definitely recommend Newark a place to call home.
