If the story of Newark’s revitalization is all about buildings, Hall, a 60-year-old principal at a charter school here, is living inside one of its newest characters. Her eclectic, fifth-floor apartment is one of the residential units in Teachers Village, a $150 million, mixed-use project financed through a consortium of private and public investments and blessed with mammoth government tax credits. The development lives along five blocks of Halsey Street, just off of the city’s main thoroughfare and was designed to convert into residents some of the 6,000 teachers and administrators who commute to this city of 280,000 each workday.

Jersey City, Hoboken, Newark all link to midtown on down.

And GWB lacks PATH.

It's difficult being a hipster douchebag without good public transportation and bicycle options.

i spun an artists weekend last fall out there
they have some GREAT spaces. downtown in office buildings (subletted out. some chick. she's doing what i wanted to do in bed stuy )

but riding around w/ some of the artists afterwards they feel the end is near for affordability

i spun in an old post office that was vacant but every corner around that building there was major construction going on. mostly condos/luxury rental.

they were talking about how the largely portuguese part, which was pretty insular, is now getting chains and other things. folks sitting on property for decades now priming themselves to cash in

it won't be brooklyn (shit, if jersey city aint bk, then newark DEF won't be), but it will go the way of BK

But Newark is still just so...raw.

I feel similarly about Harlem sometimes. Despite all the new faces and money streaming in, there are just too many crackheads! Still.

But I'm too stupidly proud to move to Newark.
Newark really is just an 18 minute train ride from Penn Station, though.

But it's just so...Newark still is too live. Even for someone like me.

Especially coming from NY'ers...when NJ pretty much supports NY, while NY tends to try to shit on NJ.

As for Newark, there's parts that are Fort Greeney, and parts that are Brownsvillian. It'll need work to be like Brooklyn, but it's coming.

I'd say JC is closer to BK than Newark (although I like Newark a lot more than JC)

Locals (white folks mainly).

Despite having Princeton might be the dumbest of the northeast states.

You kinda drive through Jersey to get to places other than jersey.
