NEWARK: A Dying American City
William R Whikehart

In 1967, Newark suffered one of the worst race riots in American history. Today, it leads the nation in crime, drug abuse, VD, tuberculosis, substandard housing, per capita welfare, property tax rates, even maternal mortality. Newark, New Jersey is not an especially outstanding city. It is far from being the largest. Like other cities, Newark has familiar patterns of industrialization, racial migration, rapid "ghetto-ization," followed by urban deterioration. These are NOT unique to Newark; other cities, some much larger, some much smaller, face the same dilemma. Yet, Newark is generally credited with the dubious distinction of being America's worst city. There are reasons why. They stand as a warning to all of urban America - a warning that must be sounded. Perhaps there is yet time for Newark and other deteriorating world cities to alter their collision course with disaster.
