Newark Travel Guide

Newark Local History

Newark was founded in 1666 and is America's third oldest city. Famous citizens of Newark include Allen Ginsberg, Shaquille O'Neal, Sarah Vaughan and Queen Latifah. The city was a colonial outpost in the old days and became a leader in America's Industrial Revolution when it emerged as a major manufacturing center.

Today, the city is overshadowed by its more glamorous neighbours and is often only remembered for its airport, which serves New York.
