Local Reviews

The neighborhood is close to grocery stores. There is public transportation to help take care of paying bills.

I like where I stay because it's close to my younger kids school. Transportation is not hard to get if you can afford it.

I like that it's quite and feels safe to walk around. The neighbors are nice and friendly when they come out

It's really quiet and it's really a very nice neighborhood in my opinion and I like it like a lot and I'm going to stay here

We have a fire department on the corner of our block. A nice park. Other then that just a normal neighborhood

Well it's actually a pretty good neighborhood everybody knows everybody and for the most part they get along.

About

Newark, CA

Overview of Newark

Located in the San Francisco Bay Area just north of Silicon Valley, the city of Newark has a population of more than 43,000 people. It offers the perfect balance between a tight-knit community and a bustling hub for the neighboring cities of Fremont, Oakland and San Jose. Regardless of which side of Newark people are attracted to, it's easy for them to make it their home with Newark apartments to rent.

Living in Newark

The beginnings of Newark were already tangible by the time California became a state in 1850. In 1853, Mayhew's Landing included warehouses for wheat, hay and coal, and there were hundreds of acres of farmland. Newark was incorporated on its own in 1955, becoming the first city in Alameda County in 47 years.

Today, manufacturing is the largest industry in Newark, and accounts for nearly 20 percent of the city's jobs. The NewPark Mall is also a big employer and attraction. It offers 1.3 million square feet of retail space and hosts a farmers market.

Newark Attractions and Special Events

Dumbarton Bridge and the Nimitz Freeway make it easy for Newark residents to enjoy hundreds of attractions in the San Francisco Bay Area. Residents experience everything from the Oakland Zoo to cheering on the San Francisco Giants and 49ers. Closer to home, Newark locals enjoy the convenience of the NewPark Mall and many other retail stores, as well as kid-friendly attractions such as an indoor play area at Kids Castle. Newark is also a short distance from the Oakland, San Jose and San Francisco International Airports, making world travel easily accessible for all Newark residents.
