average crime stats....
Newark is right on average for crime risk. It has low murder and rape rate but high burglary and theft rates for a city its size. So it averages out as average.
When you go to your hotel/motel, ask the desk clerk if there are any areas of the city to avoid. Use the latch-chain on your motel room when you are in it. Lock your car door and don't leave valuables out in view. Act like a Newarkian and not like a tourist.
