JC i dont think is good, clifton is ok and Montclair is nice depends where you move to. Kearny, North arlington, lyndhurst up that way is nicer too. Trust me Newark is going into a downward spiral. may look nice with the new renovations and stuff but its the people that make it bad.
I remember going to the Prudential Center about two months ago for a concert and thought, "doesn't look too bad here, why does everyone say it's bad around here?". Went back a couple of weeks later to have dinner at dino bbq. Wow, the area was extremely creepy and shady. All I know is that I kept my guard up the whole time just to make sure, don't know if I'd ever go back unless I really had to for a concert.
