Please suggest me some other place that helps me. But anyway, now i have dropped the idea of moving to Newark..
Even from Newark you're going to have a 30 minute commute just to get to Manhattan, not even counting how long it will take for you to get to your job. It's probably going to be closer to 50 minutes door-to-door. So if you're serious about the "30 minute commute" thing, don't even consider Newark.

I agree - you should look for apartments around the Journal Square and Grove Street PATH stations in Jersey City.

If you are already in JC area, why not just look for apartments in the Journal Square area? Much safer than Newark but cheaper than Newport/Pavonia while still very close to the path train.

Never say never. People looked at Jersey City the same way 20, even 15 years ago.

I think the east side of Newark isn't that bad at all. Once you starting heading west of Bergen streetit starts to get iffy. I grew up in the Ironbound/downtown section which was a nice area. Schools on the other hand are terrible unless you go to a private or go to the public Arts School which is a nice high school i went to.

ANYWAY, to get back on point, nice sections of Newark are not just in Ionbound or the downtown area like people think. North Newark towards Belleville is also nice, even parts of the north east section near EO is decent.

Just remember.. WEST SIDE NEWARK, is where most of the crime is at.

its like 7 mins from broad street station ... so you can possible have a 15 min commute if you live in the pavilion... but i do agree newark isnt better than jc in commuting to nyc ... newark is good for commuting almost anywhere else including downtown newark/jc and it isnt bad for commuting to nyc but jc is better than any boro when it comes to getting to the city

TTTTHHHHHHHAAAAANNNNNKKKKK YOOOOOUUUUUU!!!


even some parts west of bergen street can be ok but honestly most people dont tell the full story when they have a crime happen in newark... no one gets shot at the pru or the airport or on ferry st or at the arena.. so it begs me to ask ... just what were you doing in newark in the first place .. the stuff for out of towners are downtown and theres a street sign on ever block to direct you to a point of interest so they couldnt have gotten lost... check out that persons drug habit for more info

Lots of ancient Newark thread bumping going on lately. Good to be mindful of the year the thread was active before bumping it (to save yourself the trouble).
