Brick City Streets

DAY 187 WB BW_-13Day 187 (July 7, 2014) – Newark, NJ

Back in the Brick City. Quick stop to visit a friend before they go back overseas. I use to work here years ago. It was hard city then and it still is. People have been down on their luck for a while. The city has never overcome the race riots of the 60s. Jobs left before then. Inequality was always present….and still is. This is a violent place. Street fights are resolved by gunshots. The innocent die. The intended targets usually escape only to become the predator days later. The cycles of poverty, death and despair are on a permanent loop. I’m not sure what to do. But I want to do something.
