What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Newark

There is a grocery store within walking distance. We have plenty of food places nearby and the dollar store is down the street.

Very quiet and more seniors in this neighborhood. Look at for one another. There no loud noises at and no college student partying and disrupting the neighborhood. Not trashy at all.

It is very safe and neighbors are friendly but are not busy bodies. We are only 10 minutes to town and there is a big beautiful park very close by.

They have a nice neighborhood shopping center and are close to other cities. Newark is a busy college town with a lot to do and Wilmington has some fun things,also. You have to go into Wilmington at the right times, however.

i like that everyone pretty much leaves me alone. my favorite local business is the atm machine. i like going to the atm machine

Growing up there were many kids nearby to play outside with, and it was safe to do so. There are not many places to go out as a young adult (night life), but there are plenty of restaurants.

All About

Living in Newark, DE

Newark, a town in Delaware, has a population of approximately 33,000. Young adults (15-24) should fit right in, as they account for an above-average percentage of the population, while middle-aged professionals are less well-represented. Overall, the city's residents, with an average age of just under 34, are decidedly younger than most cities in Delaware, ranking as the second-youngest municipality in the state. A narrow majority of residents own their homes (54%) as opposed to renting (46%) in Newark. With an average rent of $1,295 per month, exceeding the state average by $202 a month, relatively high rent costs could be playing a role in the higher levels of ownership.

Averaging about 24 minutes, the commute time for Newark residents is quicker than the state average of about 27 minutes. Driving a vehicle is the most common way to get to work, chosen by 32% of commuters, while public transit is not used much. Walking (6%) isn't a common way to get to work, though the number far surpasses the national average.

Compared to the national average (7%), Newark has a large concentration of residents over the age of 25 with advanced degrees, as 11% possess a Master's degree or a Doctorate. Furthermore, 13% have a Bachelor's degree. Many Newark residents work in one of three industries: education, entertainment, and retail. Combined, these industries account for 25% of the city's labor force. Meanwhile, in terms of job function, 5% of the city's population works in management, making it the top career path in the city. With an average annual income of just over $74K, Newark workers bring in about the same as their peers elsewhere in the state. The city's average income also is nearly on par with the national average ($73,345).
