Less than ten miles west of New York’s Manhattan Island, is the city of Newark in New Jersey. It is known as the Gateway City due to its highly industrious land position, importing goods from all over the world at its major transport hubs. Hire a car in Newark and you’ll be able to explore the whole state of New Jersey – including a trip around the UNESCO-protected Pine Barrens, a beautiful natural reserve, to enjoy a hike or go fishing. Newark is proud of its commercial past as reflected by the big business which is based there, and the city has attracted countless entertainment opportunities as a result.
