New Castle apartments are very different today from the apartments built in the 1650's when the town was established. The point is that New Castle is a very quaint and old-fashioned town that operates very well in the 21st century. While the brick sidewalks are being taken over by tree roots and many of the colonial buildings are still standing, the city boasts excellent city facilities, restaurants, special shopping and fine apartments.
The town square of New Castle, the Green, is the center of the city with a grid of streets well laid out for exploring the area. There's the Old Court House, the Dutch House built in the late 1700's that offers tours from April to December, the Old Library and one of the oldest Presbyterian churches in the country. The George Read, II, house and garden is a large, old, grand house built in 1804 by the son of George Read, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. It's a fun tour to take when you're new to your New Castle apartments, and fun to take visitors. Walk down to the wharf to view the head of the river and grab a bite to eat.
Recreation is available here, with Battery Park a great place to take the kids to swing and slide while mom and dad (and friends) toss a ball or take a jog or stroll. There's a 2.5 mile long walking/jogging trail along the banks of the Delaware River. Tennis courts can be found at 4th and South Streets, and a few membership gyms are here for strength and cardio workouts.
New Castle has several specialty shops featuring gifts, jewelry, quilts, books and craft supplies like beads and cross stitch supplies. The city is a popular place for those people from out of state to come and shop, since there is no state sales tax.
Located at the top of the state, it's easy access for people from Maryland, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey. Most people who live in New Castle apartments, however, need to go to nearby Wilmington (just 6 miles away) or Philadelphia (32 miles away) to furnish their apartments or expand their wardrobe. The same goes for medical facilities, as the nearest hospital, St Francis, and the nearest train station are located in Wilmington.
The city is served by the Colonial School District for grades K-12, and the New Castle Public Library, downtown. New Castle County offers many resources as well with several universities and colleges, a wide range of athletic parks and centers, world class museums and several shopping malls. Major employers in the area include DuPont, Amtrak, the University of Delaware and Bank of America.
Whether your New Castle apartments are of a colonial nature or brand new and modern, you'll fit right in with the relaxed, comfortable lifestyle.
