Newark, DE Overview

Situated in northern Delaware just 14 miles from Wilmington, Newark’s population of 26,235 increases by 18,000 when the University of Delaware opens its doors for another academic year.  The university is a cultural, educational, and economic asset that infuses vitality into the community through renowned educators, brilliant students, retail revenue, and first-rate performing arts venues.  Newark has managed to balance its residential, educational, commercial, and industrial sectors, adding major distribution centers and corporate headquarters to its tax base.  Even the colorful Main Street corridor is undergoing a flurry of new construction and revitalization.


Newark’s location along Interstate 95 allows quick and easy access to the world-class cultural and recreational advantages of New York City, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia. The southern quadrant of Newark has grown rapidly in recent years, spawning new areas like Churchman’s Crossing with its mix of shopping, healthcare, dining, entertainment, and business centers. Older neighborhoods are popular for their charm and ambiance, blending bungalows and ranches with colonials and Tudors. Among the new developments are homesites along gently rolling hills, communities that feature superb recreational amenities, or those with spacious lots that border White Clay State Park.

Climate and Weather

The Temperature chart displays average high and low values for January and July, and is designed to provide an indication of both seasonal and daily temperature variability. The Weather Risk Index indicates the calculated risk of each type of weather event occurring in the future. This risk is based on historical localized storm events and weather patterns. The national average for each type of weather event equals a score of 100, so a score of 200 would represent twice the risk as the national average, and a score of 50 would represent half the risk of the national average.
