Newark, the "Brick City," is located in Essex County, New Jersey. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 273,546. It is an industrial city ten miles west of New York City, with convenient access to New York by road and rail. Its location on the Atlantic coast, at the mouth of the Passaic River, has helped make it a major container shipping port. It is the home of Newark Liberty International (formerly Newark Airport), the first airport to serve the New York metropolitan area.
