City of New Castle


Mayor’s Message

Dear Citizens,

Thank you for visiting the New Castle City Web site. It includes a wealth of information about our wonderful community.

New Castle prides itself on its many neighborhoods, each with its own unique personality: Baldton, Boothurst, Buttonwood, Dobbinsville, Historic Area, New Castle Manor, Penn Valley, Shawtown/West End, VanDyke Village, Washington Park and Washington Square.

If you have only visited New Castle online, you should plan a visit in person to the most picturesque and historic waterfront community on the east coast! We know you will enjoy our many quality retail shops and restaurants. Be sure to leave time in your visit to include touring several museums (some are free!) which tell the story of the early beginnings of our Country, State and City. Or, relax and take a stroll through beautiful Battery Park, with a two-mile walking path along the Delaware River.

For any of our residents with comments, questions or in need of assistance, I urge them to contact me at 322-9801 or send an email message to


Donald A. Reese
