Brick City Newark N.J. is the largest city in the state, population approximately 281 thousand, because of crime and poverty. The name Brick City originates from the bricks that thirty the city population decreased from a high of half a million during the late 1950s and early 60’s city streets use to be paved with. The name has nothing to with drugs or drug use. Currently it also the name of a documentary on the Sundance Channel about the efforts to revitalize the city.

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

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
