What Renters Like and Dislike About New Castle

There is really nothing that is unique about this neighborhood it's just a safe and pleasant place to live.

The quiet country setting. The friendliness of everyone in it. I feel safe and excited to raise my family there.

nothing at all i guess just the costotherwise its a rundown empty buildings downtown area few stores

Friendly and quiet and and there is stored up the street that you can walk to with your kidsand alot

I like that we have grocery stores and restaurants within walking distance. My neighborhood is very quiet and subdued.

Going to the parks local stores are great .nearby towns have malls.little towns with a lot of stores with local items to buy
