    because a lot of crime takes place there, and its a pretty dangerous place to be. you could hang out in the iron bound section of newark in the day time, but its not the best place to mess with at night.

    Well here's the deal if you can get into rutgers main campus in new brunswick, that would be your best option. Newark is no Camden however the murder rate is rather high. If you do choose to go there though, you will have to be very careful and watch not to stray from the main areas in newark. Like there are some nice aspects to Newark like NJPAC (New Jersey Performing Arts Center) but not enough to outweigh the murders that occur there.

    There is some parts of Newark that is very nice, Camden is the worst City in the world. Newark is improving.

    Well, there is the high murder, violent crime, and poverty and unemployment rates that give Newark a bad rap, but mostly it is because it is in New Jersey.
