The Garden State's largest city is No. 35 of the 100 cities with the highest foreclosure rates, The (Newark) Star-Ledger reported Wednesday.
Latifah, a Newark native -- along with singer Wyclef Jean and others -- rode a bus through the city to raise awareness of the foreclosure crisis, the newspaper said.
The bus ride campaign was sponsored by Hope Now, a federally sponsored alliance of non-profit counselors and mortgage industry participants developed to help ease the deepening foreclosure problem across the nation.
