Nickname of Newark, the largest city in New Jersey. The nickname has nothing to do with drugs. It has to do with many low & high rise housing projects of the 50, 60's, 70, 80, 90 & early 2000s the city use to have. Example: The Little Bricks were three story projects off Livingston st. , Rose st. , Muhammad Ali blvd., and jeliff st. There was also Dayton st, Hayes Homes, Prince st, 7th ave, Montgomery St, Lincoln St, Seth Boyden,Baxter Terrance, Columbus Homes, Scudder Homes, Stella Wright & the many other apartment buildings that were maid out of Red or Light Bricks. So again it has nothing to do with any drugs

Nick name for Newark New Jersey, derived from the large amount of crack bricks that can be purchased. The hardest, most ghetto city in America, possibly the world. If you think your city is ghetto, come here and prepare to be blown away.
