Newark is New Jersey’s largest city, with a population of approximately 275,000 and is also the third oldest city in the United States with more than 330 years of history, surpassed by only New York and Boston.
Newark is located 13 miles southwest of Midtown Manhattan. Newark International Airport (New Jersey Turnpike Interchanges 13A & 14) is the closest airport to Manhattan and is also among the nation’s busiest. Many airlines, including Continental, use Newark as their hub airport. However, there is much more to Newark than just the airport.
Newark today is experiencing a renaissance and is again asserting its position as a dynamic city with a bright future ahead. New development is popping up throughout the downtown area, as the streets are clean and safe, businesses are moving back to the city, and a new basketball and hockey arena has just been completed.
Newark is the Gateway to New Jersey—the financial, commercial, transportation, and cultural nucleus of the Garden State, and is the home of Weequahic Golf Course and the Cherry Blossom Festival at Branch Brook Park.
Newark offers a rich variety of quality entertainment, dining, culture, and sports. With the development of the Train-to-Plane, Newark now boasts one of the most streamlined transportation systems in the world.
