There are plenty of bars/restaurants from Mulberry to the Ironbound. The problem is you didn't bother to look around or ask. You just judged everything by the Broad St. side.
Scully's-Clinton St. 2 blocks north via Mulberry
Arena Bar-Green and Mulberry, block south of the arena
City Cafe(sports bar)-2 blocks south on Mulberry
Hell's Kitchen-Lafayette/Buren, Ironbound, 4 blocks
Market St. Bar/Grill-Gateway Center
Cafe Airlie-Commerce Street, 3 blocks north on Mulberry
As for shopping, go to Newport or Jersey Gardens.
Well Broad street looks like a war zone.
Yes I know about the Ironbound section and I agree that is a nice area and probably coming from Penn Station will be OK....but you cannot avoid the other blighted areas in such close proximity.
I want this thing to succeed as much as anyone.
I was born in Newark and I went to high school and college in Newark. Before the exodus to the suburbs and the malls...we used to shop and go to the movies in Newark...I can only hope...
