I lived in Newark for one year while doing some internships for financial companies in the downtown district. I've resided in the historic Ironnbound neighborhood and definitely appreciated the character of this working-class area. The best part about the city was the superior public transportation system. Few cities in the world of Newark's population size boast a functional light rail network. Additionally, the NJ Transit trains at Newark Penn Station take you directly to hundreds of stops in New Jersey and also provide quick trips to Manhattan. The entire Newark downtown pedestrian friendly and it's convenient to grab a bite or buy some apparel and electronics on the busy Market Street. The worst thing about Newark is the rampant urban blight that is devouring much of the city's residential districts. The sight of wooden boards blocking doors and windows in abandoned homes is common throughout the city. Additionally, traffic along the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway can be a nightmare during rush hours. The sounds of constant police sirens during the late evening hours is something that Newark residents can consider a daily part of life. In my short time living in Newark, I've learned to appreciate the great attractions it has to offer including the displays at the Newark Museum. Catching the NJ Devils at Prudential Arena or the NY Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena was something I always looked forward to when tickets were within my monthly budget. The New Jersey Performing Arts Center is also one of the top performing arts venues not only in the Garden State but the entire Tri-State area. Another feature to admire about Newark is the rich architecture in the downtown district that's lined with Art Deco skyscrapers have been built before the iconic Empire State Building in neighboring NYC.
