Stepping off the Grove St. Path you are greeted by Shepard Fairy's huge "Wave" mural as you emerge onto the lively intersection at Grove St. and the pedestrian walkway on Newark Ave. Several blocks in either direction will be bustling with activity and, at times, farmer's markets and street fairs. Some of the best restaurants in this gastronomically diverse city are within these popular blocks. No matter what type of food your heart desires, you will find it here and in good form. Charming, individually-owned shops (if you are looking for chains, this won't be your spot), as well as a lively nightlife can be found here. This is truly the heart of this ethnic and culturally diverse city.
