What Renters Like and Dislike About New Castle

It's always been a void neighborhood to raise a family. It's usually pretty quiet. There are restaurants and grocery stores nearby.

It's a small quiet town. Not many people live here. There are restaurants and 1 bar. Family oriented. Very nice and respectful helpful neighbors

In my neighborhood all the children can say that they have met each other . The community is very child friendly.

All About

Living in New Castle, DE

Delaware is one of the smaller states in the U.S., but when it comes to cultural vibrancy, appearances can be deceiving. Not only does Delaware have a thriving culture of its own, it's informed by both Philadelphia to the north and Baltimore to the south, creating a perfect blend of urban excitement and suburban relaxation. Such is the case with the neighborhood around your New Castle apartment for rent.

Quietly overlooking the Delaware River, New Castle is an up-and-coming town with plenty of character. One of the finest qualities of your new home however is its proximity to verdant parks and quiet side streets. From New Castle Battery Park along the shore of the river to Wilton, Jamestowne or New Castle County Cambridge Gardens Park, you won't lack for quiet places for rest and relaxation.

Thinking about making a healthy and nutritious meal for the whole family in your New Castle apartment one night this week? Head on over to the New Castle farmers market for fresh produce. Or stock your apartment's pantry with plenty of snacks and essentials from the B.J.'s Wholesale Club right next door. And if you have any last minute construction or renovation to do in your abode, you can find everything you need at the Home Depot in the same plaza. Of course, the store's plants and outdoor section is great for starting a garden of your own.

If you and your loved ones are looking for a place of worship, you'll find plenty of opportunities around the New Castle area. Victory Christian Fellowship on Wilton Boulevard or the Iron Hill Community Church at Parkway Circle are only two of numerous congregations happy to accept you and yours.
