Orientation and Maps
(Newark, New Jersey (NJ), USA)
Close to New York, Newark is most famous for its airport and as a result, the city itself is often overlooked. This is a real shame, as Newark has plenty to offer and has become one of the most important cities in the state of New Jersey.
Located directly south of the city center, the Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) stands next to the bay and has excellent connections to the area and nearby New York. Also nearby, the city of Philadelphia lies to the southwest, next to West Chester and Wilmington, while Providence and Springfield can be found to the northeast.
