Newark is New Jersey's largest city. The city is known for two things: its huge airport, which serves New York City and Northern New Jersey, and the 1960s riots, which destroyed much of the city and sent it into a long decline from which it is finally recovering. Newark was written off for dead by many in the 1970s and 1980s, but it has experienced a solid turnaround in the past ten years. Although Newark still has many areas in which you would not want to be wandering alone unarmed at night, it also has a number of attractions for tourists, including an excellent museum, a large new performing arts center, one of the largest cathedrals in the US, and the Ironbound Spanish/Portuguese neighborhood, which has a number of very good restaurants. Newark also has the New Jersey Devils, a major league (NHL), ice hockey team and a minor league baseball team, the Newark Bears.
