New Castle

There is historic New Castle—dozens of Colonial homes, the historic market green and courthouse, the residents’ obvious appreciation for local history—then there is everything around it: a jumble of subdivisions. You want to be here because there is no place else like it. A roster of free summer concerts on riverfront Battery Park join Separation Day festivities and Art on the Green as much-anticipated public festivities. Delaware Street offers a small handful of good places to eat. Living in old, often small homes is different, but it has its charms.
