the location for one of the greatest understatements in history

Newark AkA brick city was once a beautiful city with mansions, brilliant parks and beautiful buildings, to compliment the bustling businesses that were also located there

when the 1st black family moved in, it was said "there goes the neighborhood"

and now newark struggles, with STDs, drugs, employment, poor leadership, and dilapidated buildings
newark used to be the prefect example for other cities to be built upon

the brick city is found to have the highest murder rate in the country

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.
An average of 4 people are murdered every day in the brick city.
