All the bakeries in this Portuguese section of Newark are excellent and this is no exception. Also a great place to grab an inexpensive snack or lunch, great cappucino.
It's hard to go wrong eating Portuguese food in the Ironbound section of Newark. But everyone has their favorite place, and this is mine. Generous portions. My favorite is the shrimp in green sauce. Lobster is also a great choice, and I love the dessert sorbets. If Iberia Tavern is too crowded, check out the newer Iberia Peninsula which is half a block down and has the same owners and terrific food. Well worth a visit, family friendly.
A great place to visit with the family, winter or summer. The environmental building is lovely to sit in on a winter's day, enjoy the fireplace and look out on the water. In the summer they have fishing, boat tours of the reservoir, canoe and kayak rentals. Many people walk or bike around the whole reservoir which is 5 or 6 miles and very scenic.
A great collection of American art works, plus this museum is well known for its ethnic collections, from Tibet, Africa and Asia. Special children's activities and exhibits, I recommend checking the schedule for workshops, and special performances. There is also a planetarium. This place is a real treasure in the heart of Newark. Free jazz performances in the outdoor sculpture garden during the summer. Good healthy food available in the atrium snack bar.
Very efficient helpful people here. I had to recall a package once, and they were able to help me. I recommend it if you need to ship anything large or small. I believe the prices are cheaper than Fed Ex also.
Delicious home-style cooking. Very hearty food, huge portions, and prices so reasonable you don't know how they do it. Everything I've tried here has been fresh and absolutely delicious. Excellent homemade soups.
Very large, lovely swimming pool, rustic landscaping and set in a beautiful woodsy nature center. Very peaceful and relaxing, a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. There is a snack bar and tables for picnicking. Swim lessons and other children's activities. Free parking, reasonable fees for a day visit or summer membership. The water comes from a mountain stream, and is very clean, no chemicals used in this pool.
I have gotten some good deals here on household and kitchen items, and sometimes you can find collectable dishes. Also a good selection of used books.
This is my favorite hardware store in the area. Prices very reasonable and friendly helpful employees. It is crammed with every item you could ever need, and the people who work here know exactly where everything is. Or if you describe your problem, they will tell you exactly what you need to fix it. No more wandering the aisles of a giant store searching for what you want, or someone to help you.
We can't go through Hoboken without stopping here for a cafe con leche to go. It's the best there is! We've never eaten here, but everytime we stop in, the place is jammed.
