Resolve, you have to be a "NATIVE" of Newark, NJ to appreciate its' value.However, North Broadway section of Newark, NJ is mostly Latinos and Latinas and the Central Ward "I think" is occupied mostly by African Americans. There are alot of redevelopment plans in progress for Newark, NJ. To my knowledge, Corey Booker(Mayor) is trying to bring in alot of outside investors to facilitate change.
When you think of Newark, NJ one must think about it as a whole.
Keep in mind, environment(s)/neighborhoods are subject to change at any given time.
Further resolve, I would have a look "c"; esp. if I plan to live there . "TAKE THE INITIATIVE".
I must add, JR cheese cake is awesome. smile.

I like using the following sites to neighborhood information:

Trulia has crime statistics in our Stats & Trends section. The stats are broken down by property crime and violent crime and you can compare the city averages to the county and state averages as well.
