"You've got to visit the..." Newark Favorite Tip by NewarkDevil

Newark General: 10 reviews and 1 photos


Favorite thing: You've got to visit the Ironbound. Its narrow main thoroughfare of Ferry Street reminds one of a Lisbon main street with its vast collection of Portuguese (and Brazilian) restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, and other shops. Riverbank Park and Independence Park are also nice stops for some greenery although last I checked Riverbank was undergoing some major work. I don't know what's going on over there but the park is fenced off. Independence Park is another one of the six Olmsted designed parks in Newark (the same guy who did Central Park in New York City and the Mall in Washington, D.C.).

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
