Since we’ve lived here, I’ve always told people that we live in a suburb of NYC, when I think it is more accurate that we were once a suburb of Newark. I must admit, I didn’t ever enjoy going to Newark even though I had no qualms about going to NYC before they started holding the line on crime.

Why is that? Reputation? Statistical evidence? The Daily Newarker considers the cold and foreboding architecture – which I agree is amazingly dreadful almost across the board in the Brick City and is a factor in the vibe one gets when there.
