A day in Old New Castle - Fun or too crowded?

by Joanandjoe

We'll be taking our vacation in the Philly area from May 14 to 22, 2005. The day when the New Castle houses are open to the public (May 21) sounds intriguing; but we're concerned that things will be very overcrowded. If anyone has been to this annual event, we'd appreciate their thoughts as to whether we should seek out or avoid being in New Castle for this year's event.

Re: A day in Old New Castle - Fun or too crowded?

by ksvander

I haven't been in years, but it wasn't overcrowded at all. It had more people than usual, which you would expect with a festival, but there wasn't any crowding issues. The homes are really cool to look through. One lady had done a beautiful job renovating her home (I remember her porcelain bowl she converted into a sink bowl in her powder room) and another gentleman had a large collection of medieval armor. The town used to fire cannons during a reenactment of soldiers storming/taking over the Kalmar Nykel, but the owners of the historic homes complained about the noise/vibrations causing damage to the houses, so I have heard they no longer shoot the cannons. I have also heard that not as many people have returned in recent years since this tradition was removed.

The Kalmar Nykel (I believe it's a reconstruction of an old Swedish ship from colonial years) docks by Battery Park and you can tour it. Another must see place is the Dutch house which at the present is quite possibly the oldest house in America still standing, but researchers are still investigating. The Amstel house also is neat. I think admission fees might be reduced or waived during Old New Castly Days. Visit the tavern (Jessup's?) for some English fare done the English way, and be sure to check out the antique shops nearby. If you love historical sites, like me, this would definitely be a FUN stop.

Ride bikes for miles!

by tpangelinan

You can bring a bike and ride for miles around Old New Caslte and Battery Park along the Delaware River. Bring your lunch, (perfect picnic grounds). Bring fluids also, strict codes have prohibited much business from sprouting up, and the Restaurants open when the feel like it.
Parking is free. It is pretty crowded, so go in the morning if you don't like crowds.

"interesting facts"

original town name was Fort Kasimir then Trefaldigheet and New Amstel finally New Castle

New Castle fire department is called Good-Will Fire Company and has been in operation for 100 years.

The city symbols are the plow, the cow and the ship; these are in reference to the farming, the husbandry and the commerce that made the city prosper. The Police Department badge incorporates these symbols.

The traditional story is that William Penn, when he landed here, was given a small sapling in soil and a cup of local water to signify that he could have all the lands and waters in the area.

New Castle

by billus

I arrived at the New Caftle Common at Nine o'Clock in the morning. The coffin was undamaged in tranfit, and the hot roaft Turkey with Stuffing bafted in Lard had sufficed for the entirety of the Night. I secured the horses to a handfome Hitching Poft erected for that Purpose, and proceeded to the offices of Dr Mortimer, with the intention of securing a Cemetery Plot for my wife, the late belov-ed Elifabeth Waldemar Cheefeworm Van Tweenhuysen before Nightfall.

Dr Mortimer's Home and Offices were infused with a queer smell, perhaps one part Ether, one part Formaldehyde, and two parts Lard Rashers of Bacon and Coffee. I declined his offer of Break-fast, having confumed much hot Oven-baked Lard bafted Turkey en Route.We proceeded to the Graveyard in order to select a suitable burying place for my late, beloved E l i f a b e t h.

We were greeted by a swarm of Batf upon entering the church yard. I was struck by the persistence of the Lard, Ether and Formaldehyde Odour, which Dr Mortimer apparently emanates in great Wafts, due to his Business in performing Autopfies, Veterinary Surgery, and Internal Medicine.
