Just trying to get a feel for it from anyone that knows.  

I was recently scammed by someone who lives there and would like to know a little more about the area if possible.  Crime area?  Responsive police?  Anything that can give me a better idea of what I'm hunting.  

I'm particularly concerned with the area near 79 and Main Street but a little south of there.  Waldo, Grant, Riley, Hancock St. area.  43055 ZIP, to be sort of specific.

Thanks to any who respond.

Abject white poverty.

Methbillys and white trash.

That's  Newark.

No clue about the police. I avoid the town  like I do the getto in Columbus.

Thanks for the info.  I'll probably try to ring up the police today while I'm not doing anything.  It would be great if this person is the scammer and is on their radar.

This.

The area around Newark is great… Granville and some of the surrounding county are some of the best parts of Ohio. But Newark itself is methbilly hell.

The file extension is .gif but it's not animated.

I don't think you can upload an animated gif to arf photo hosting. Try uploading it to imgur?

Newark PD once beat up a Deputy Marshal and handed him over to a mob who lynched him.

White trash, rednecks, trailer parks, best to be avoided. Even Longaberger Basket couldn't last there, even though you can see the crumbling building that resembles a basket from SR 16.

White privilege is about race and not location.

I read that The Elbow Lounge...one of the last if not the last downtown dive bars....was just torn down.

As a young adult I slummed a lot of bars in Nerk but the Elbow was one place I was smart enough not to go.

"DO YOU MIND IF WE DANCE WIF 'YO DATES?" sort of comes to mind.

You’d be better off moving to Lima!

Newark is a trash place. Avoid it if you'd like to not get fucked in the ass by a meth-head with a tattooed dick and a ribbed condom.
