Newark is an interesting place to explore: it has a reputation for being a crime-filled city, yet it has areas that are coming around, places of beauty (such as Branch Brook Park), and some fascinating history coming from its heyday in the first half of the twentieth century. Some of the arts adventures have taken place in specific neighborhoods, while at other times it is an adventure that I take with my bicycle, simply heading east into the city with no true destination in mind, just looking for something interesting to see ... and there always is something.
