Get the door, it's the liquor store
To the outsider, the fact that there’s a city called Newark right outside a city called New York seems a... bit much. But you heard it here, people: Newark came first. That’s right, this once Puritan colony was settled in 1666, back when the forested island settlement to the east was still known as New Amsterdam. Fortified by this OG cred, Newark today is the place where people go who love art, parks, diverse cultural offerings and well-paying jobs. The city has several economic powerhouses operating within its bounds. The first is the Newark Liberty International Airport, one of the busiest in the United States and the spot where even many in NYC come to fly out. The second is Port Newark-Elizabeth, the busiest seaport on the east coast. Then there’s the rail hub, the banking and tech headquarters. And when you look past its impressive economic output, there’s still the lovely offerings of a city built for its residents. There are big-name concerts at the NJPAC. The Newark Museum is packed to the rafters with incredible art from all over the country. There are lakes, walking paths and blooming cherry trees all through Branch Brook Park. Oh, and there’s also on-demand alcohol delivery through Drizly. Simply head to our app or website and select from the finest beers, wines and liquors — your order will arrive within 60 minutes.
