    I live in Newark, Nice little town. Main street is a little overrun by chain stores now instead of the unique little places that made it special---Like the Stone Balloon, for instance. Newark is home to the University of Delaware--lots of students around, definitely a presence but not overbearing. It's just a little quieter in the summer though. One Camera shop--- Cameras, etc.---A good one at least....actually two shops, but Newark camera is not what it used to be. Skip grottos and get yer pizza at Margharitas or Peace of Pizza (Not a misprint) and stay away from the post office at peak times. What else would you like to know?

    Arthur - Coming from little ol' NYC, you will find Newark overwhelming. Actually, nice college town. Maybe not for everyone.

    Biggest problem with Newark is Tom Nutter. Avoid him!

    Actually, Tom has a nice show opening on March 5, if you (or anyone else) is going to be around. Actually, it is in Wilmington, the superior Delaware city. Tell us more about it, Tom, maybe in a separate posting.

    Biggest problem with Newark is that there are tooo many photographers around....LOL! Yes the show is a Colourworks in Wilmington here is a llink to the info: http://www.tomnutter.blogspot.com

    And to get this thread back on track....There IS a fairly vibrant art scene around Newark and Wilmington. The Newark Arts alliance, the Delaware Center for Contemporary Arts, in Wilmington, and of course the Delaware Art museum, to name a few. Lots to do in Newark, or around Newark, and I-95 is easy to get to as well if you find a need to go some place like New Jersey, although again, the Delaware beaches are cleaner, better, and less crowded.

    Hey, there really are other photographers around! I'm new to this forum as I've just gotten back into shooting with film. I live up the road from Newark and it is a pretty nice place as long as you are not where the college parties are happening. (Or if you are into that, maybe that makes it nicer)

    I hope to check out your show Tom.

    Here is a link to the Newark Post: http://www.newarkpostonline.com/

    --although, the page I just looked at makes us look like a crime-scene.

    Also the News Journal: http://www.delawareonline.com

    Hope some general info helps.

    One thing for all to know: It's pronounced New Ark, not like the abomination in New Jersey. .
