On my way to Mexico, I'll be having a transit in US (both on the way to Mexico and on the way back). The transit is at Newark, NJ airport and I will not be going outside the airport. So I'm applying for an Alien in Transit (C1) type visa.

In the DS-160 form, it asks me to fill "Address Where You Will Stay in the U.S." Since I'm not actually staying anywhere, how should I fill this required section?

    3 Brewster Rd, Newark, NJ 07114 Newark Liberty International Airport, Address or you can put not applicable if it allows you. – user 56513 Jun 19 '17 at 14:00

The DS-160 instructions say:

I am required to give the name of a contact or organization and a phone number, but I am not visiting anyone in the U.S.

If you do not know anyone personally you may give the name of the hotel, company or organization you intend to visit. If the question does not apply in your case, you may simply state "does not apply". If you are in transit to a non-U.S. destination, please write "Transit."

Since you're in transit and not leaving the airport, I would write "Transit."

    "N/A" will save a few brush strokes. – Spehro Pefhany Jun 20 '17 at 14:38
