Stay out of Irvington. Newark has safe areas and unsafe areas. It's a full city.

is it the north newark the safest?

The area around Prudential center in downtown and then the University heights near NJPAC are safe.

The Ironbound section and downtown are relatively safe, however they are probably significantly more expensive than East Orange at this point. I would suggest Bloomfield which is not far from East Orange and tends to be more affordable. Also look into Belleville but I believe they have sketchy areas as well.
