Don't know what crime has to do with it but I'll play. There's been crime in DUMBO and Hoboken(not just west on Washington St.)and still is.
There was crime in the CBD as long as Rutgers Newark Campus and office buildings have been there, so those have done nothing.
Yep. One of the most attended in the state and well-known for its world-renowned Tibetan galleries. Obviously no one cares about it.
a museum that no one really cares about
See what? Upscale apartments(Eleven80, Clinton Lofts, etc.)?
and I do not see this being built in downtown Newark.
Uh. You need these type of stores and restaurants to price out the low-class leftovers already there so a new breed can come in and can add demand for housing. It's slowly but surely about to happen on Market Street. The bars and shops in DUMBO and Hoboken were there before the yuppie invasion. They also have something that Newark doesn't: Manhattan in their backyard. This isn't about being an inner city resident; it's common sense.
Typical inner-city resident who thinks a couple of stores and restaurants will change an entire city center.
