Housing

Dear Newark,

You're ripe for redevelopment. Do it right this time. The "Bayonne Boxes" are not a step in the right direction. People tolerate them cause there was nothing happening for so long, but you can do better. These houses are cheap and benefit the developers, but not the community. Let's think about houses with yards, front porches. Parking is needed but the entire front of the house doesn't need to be a driveway. Let's leave room for trees.

Dear Newark,

Você fala português? Yes, you do! I love hearing Portuguese walking through the Ironbound. Be it newly arrive Brasilians or older Portuguese-Americans. It's such a beautiful language, like a mix of Spanish and French to the ears!

Dear Newark,

Here's why I hate you. I hate that you're so coy with your riches that other people don't understand why they should love you so much.
