I mean't to start this a few weeks ago. But its to document my Journeys and you can request cities or neighborhoods as long as there safe , and i will 3x check that. I'm currently doing the NJ Gold Coast , & it has to be limited to within a 1 mile radius of a LRT stop , because i hate taking a bus.

Lets rundown on the areas ive been to so far.....

Newark

Newark Forest Hill's Section > might revisit it sometime this year i'm not sure on where to go though , i need the locals insight on the areas with the best / historical looking homes.

Newark Downtown > I think we can agree ive covered as much as there is to be seen , although later this year i'll go back to recap it.

Newark Ironbound > I'm done with that for now , i'll go back to cover a few Residential areas in the southern part.


Newark University Heights > Covered a tiny portion of it , need to go back and do the rest.

Suggestion:

Plainfield - downtown, Sleepy Hollow, Crescent Ave. Historic District, Van Wyck Brooks Historic District.

I can give you specific streets if you'd like.

Here's another suggestion...Ivy Hill Neighborhood of Newark. It is not like the rest of the West Ward; actually kinda nice. It is the small area near Ivy Hill Park near Seton Hall.
