Newark is a city of diversity. As Ellis Island invited people from all over the world, Newark was one of the first stopping points in the new country. Many stayed and made Newark home translating the city into a smorgasbord of culinary diversity as well. The city offers cuisine from Portugal, Brazil, and Spain.

Established in the middle of the 17th century, Newark was an early settlement in the history of the United States and offers many historical sites throughout the city.
Several churches of historical significance can be found in the city. The First Presbyterian Church at 820 Broad Street, the First Baptist Peddie Memorial Church at 572 Broad Street and the First Episcopal Church at 950 Broad Street all date from the 1890s or earlier.
