I have lived in Newark for more than 35 years and have raised my entire family here and never moved. I love this city. With that being said it does have crime just like any other city but overall it relatively quiet. I know the area between Newark blvd. and Mayhews Landing well. I believe you will have less crime there than the more secluded streets but you are also close to the junior high and you may see some kids breaking the law. I don't think you have much to worry about. Did you buy the rehabbed house over there? I looked at before it was done. I hope that it looks better now :). Hope this helps.
