Newark Apartments for Rent
Newark is about halfway between Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Baltimore Maryland, and about 12 miles southwest of Wilmington, Delaware. It's population is about 30,000, and the second A in its name should be pronounced like a Bostonion pronounces the A in park. Main transportation routes are Interstate 95 and Delaware Routes 2 and 4. But why you would want the hassle of driving is a mystery, with the excellent public transportation system in this region. The SEPTA rail service has a stop near the University of Delaware that heads toward Philadelphia or Wilmington. DART buses stop at the university and the rail station and go to Wilmington, Elkton, MD, or the Christiana Mall.
Newark's population is about 87% white, 6% Black, 4% Asian, and 3% Hispanic. The average household income in Newark is about $48,000, while for a family it's about $75,000.

Some spots in this area may get noisy at times during the school year. There are some apartments in this area to choose from, including Korman Residential at Christina Mill Apartments, West Creek Village Apartments and OakTree Apartments on Wenark Drive. There are plenty of other choices as well, such as Melrose Place Apartments on Melrose Drive, near White Clay Creek State Park.
Things to Do in NewarkOne spot you should stop in downtown 'just because' is the Deer Park Tavern. It's popular with UD students for the same reasons most bars are, but it's got some unique history. Built in 1851, it is reported to be one of the spots were Edgar Allan Poe worked on his famous story 'The Raven.' Even if you're not a Poe fan, it's just one of those places you have to say you've seen, like Primanti Brothers in Pittsburgh, PA, or Union Oyster House in Boston.
Newark doesn't have just city recreation, however, head away from downtown, and there are plenty of parks. Middle Run Natural Area, White Clay Creek State Park, and Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area are all nearby, and offer hiking, biking, and horseback riding. A little south is Iron Hill Park.
