The City of New Castle has been referred to as "Little New York City" because of its rich ethnic, religious, and racial diversity. Families enjoy a quiet community with a low crime
rate with the benefits of the major City of Pittsburgh less than an hour away where entertainment is plentiful.
A full range of municipal services, the low cost of living, and excellent opportunities for quality housing in beautiful homes located in long established neighborhoods provides a most
important attraction. Traditional family values, close knit families, and community pride are among the attributes of the people of New Castle.
Business is welcome to New Castle through the Department of Community Development
where a full range of financial and relocation services and assistance is available to interested businesses. Established enterprise zones and commerce parks, coupled with financial assistance and tax incentives create an excellent opportunity and environment for new businesses and existing businesses wishing to expand or relocate.
