Okay so I was not sure if I should place this in the revitalization around the rock forum or make it's own topic so feel free to do with it as you choose. The NJ historical society is working with another non profit to do a "Scavenger Hunt" of historical and hidden gems withing the city of Newark. I figure those of you trying to get to know the city or just see some cool stuff might enjoy.

Here is the link : http://www.newarkscavengerhunt.com

Here is the glocally blog on it : http://glocallynewar...elf-a-newarker/

I'm using it as an opportunity to try out some new bars and see some stuff I would otherwise probably overlook.

Should we file the missing persons report before it happens?

Then why would you say that? You should know that area and around Prudential are the safest places in the city.. Unless those 4 years were 10+ ago

if you read my post, you would see exactly the area i specified. i said nothing of the area around prudential. there is no need to sugar coat the areas i'm referring to, you go there, you will get in to trouble.

I have to get Zero's back here. the area after NJIT but really more so after UMDNJ has a looooooooooooong way to go. Lack of rail transportation and a bit of isolation has kind of made it a rough area. I actually missed the scavenger hunt but I loved the idea.

I'm not saying Zero's point is wrong, but there's no need to make a snarky comment here. The scavenger hunt's not gonna take people to a dangerous neighborhood. We all know some of Newark is rough. There's no need to bring negativity in when someone does something good.
