Newark Real Estate
Newark is a city in New Castle County, Delaware, United States. It is located directly east of the Maryland state line, adjacent to the unincorporated community of Fair Hill, and is less than a mile south of the tripoint where Delaware, Maryland, and Pennsylvania meet, known as The Wedge.
Despite the fact that Newark is located roughly halfway between Philadelphia and Baltimore and is part of densely populated New Castle County, there is a large amount of public parkland surrounding the city.
Public education in Newark is managed by the Christina School District and the New Castle County Vocational-Technical School District. The Christina School District manages public education for Newark and environs and parts of Wilmington, Delaware while Newark Charter School is a state-chartered school offering grades K-12.
Newark is a recognized center of US and international figure skating, mostly due to the many national, world, and Olympic champions (including many foreign nationals) that have trained at the University of Delaware Figure Skating Club (an independent club operating within UD facilities) and at The Pond Ice Rink. In 2009, Sporting News ranked Newark 192 in its list of the 400 Best Sports Cities.
