Newark is a northeastern Silicon Valley city, located in the east bay, in southern Alameda County. Newark has a population of about 45,000 people. Newark was one of the last cities to join the Silicon Valley, as it reached out a bit further to embrace the few cities that had escaped its initial wave of expansion. As a result, Newark is a well balanced, well planned city. Newark provided land for homes, plants, and office and research facilities for these high tech companies. As a result, the newer housing caters a bit more to professionals and is somewhat upscale. The older, more blue collar housing still remains as well, but Newark has done a good job of mixing it all together, old and new. The city has planted trees all over the place (over 15,000, supposedly), and has 10 parks. Newark gets its name from a castle in Dumbarton, Scotland (hence the bridge, too). An early developer came from Scotland, and passed on the names. Cargill Salt, previously known as Leslie Salt, operates a large salt refinery in Newark, processing salt right out of the San Francisco bay's salt flats. Newark is served by the Newark Unified School District. The California state census in 2004 counted 13,415 residential housing units in Newark, of which 9,206 were single family detached homes, 1,238 were single family attached houses, 2,912 were apartments, condos, or townhomes, and 59 were mobile homes.

Newark was one of the last cities to join the Silicon Valley, as it became home to a huge Sun Microsystems office complex in the late 1990's, in addition to the already existing facilities of Hewlett Packard and other high tech firms. The commute from Newark is generally not bad -- I-880 borders the city, as does the Dumbarton Bridge, which gives access to the peninsula and officially makes it "connect " to and become part of Silicon Valley. Newark was almost annexed by neighboring city Fremont when it was incorporating in 1956 (this is common practice -- the large cities always try to annex neighboring territories -- the only way the little territories can protect themselves is to incorporate on their own), but little Newark fought for its independence and incorporated itself, also in 1956.
