Kidding about what? That it's a 3-block walk, or that she's 20? Why would she kid about something like that?

6pm is rush hour, just don't get hit. 6 is better than 9pm or midnight when fewer cars are around and its better to carry a backpack than a purse, I told my g/f this who lives right around the stadium.

I guess it;s a bit late for me to tell you now. But for future reference. It is not a good area Newark altogether to walk at night. However, I don;t think it should be too bad considering there are tons of people going into the stadium and coming back out at the same time basically just my personal thought.
A cab ride would be the way to come back to the train station thought. Should not cost you almost anything. Hope this helps for the future

Another ignorant post from someone who hasn't been there. Unless she's handicapped why would she need to take a $5 + cab ride to go 2 blocks away? Especially when there are cops there and an indoor skywalk going to Penn Station?

Haha, nothing to do with what I saw on any news channel. I think it's a fair question being new to the area and wanting to know whether walking somewhere I've never been is safe considering how early it's been getting dark. My daily commute has been confined to Hoboken to UES and I haven't ventured into the Newark area all that much yet.

That being said, I survived and it really is an easy walk considering 90% of it is indoor through the Gateway Center, and then it's just a matter of crossing a street really.

Shut it.............................. People come & go from The Rock without incident on a regular basis. "Just your personal (bias) thought" is correct.

I felt super ignorant asking the question, but being new to the area, you never know!
Good thing you are from elsewhere....if you were a Rangers fan, I'd tell you how awful and dangerous the walk was!

What did you think of the experience? Enjoy the game?

No issues with that walk, as others have said. Don't wander off from the immediate area, however.
