Founded in 1666, Newark has lived the nation’s history within its boundaries and through the years. Starting as a Puritan village where the Revolutionary War was fought in its streets, growing to a major industrial power attracting thousands of immigrants to the factories of the city, Newark has survived to tell the story of America’s cities. As jobs left and the depression left its mark on American cities, Newark’s long decline started. This decline culminated in the tragic summer of 1967. Since then Newark’s climb back to its rightful role as New Jersey’s premiere city has been slowly and steadily taking place. There is a new attitude in Newark, one of pride in its past and hope for its future. There is a new perception that Newark is worth looking at and we invite you to join us in enjoying our city.
