Newark, California

Newark, named for a castle in Dumbarton, Scotland, is one of the latest cities to join the Silicon family.  The result is a city that blends the old with the new and fairly new, paying more attention to appearances and housing offerings that are attracting many high-tech professionals.

The city, population 43,043, has planted 15,000 trees everywhere.  In some sections, industry and housing live side by side, which some may not like.  The town works with older industries to butter them from residential areas.   Newark still has many residents working blue-collar jobs and many outsiders probably still hold the image of Newark as a blue-collar town.  But with the influx of white-collar workers and professionals, the housing and social mix has become much more varied and the town has moved up the scale.
