The citizens of New Castle and Boston share a history of helping each other.
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.
