Setting & Lifestyle
New Wilmington is a small town where college students really create the town feel and character. So many small towns have lost population over the last 20-30 years that having the local college presence in the New Wilmington area, with all of the energy of the students filling area dorms and apartments each fall, really helps New Wilmington maintain a good economy.
For a small borough, there is also a high proportion of single, often educated, people living in New Wilmington. This is not typical for smaller communities in America, and adds a feeling of vibrancy to New Wilmington.
One of the benefits of New Wilmington is that there is very little traffic. The average commute to work is 18.65 minutes, which is substantially less than the national average. Not only does this mean that the drive to work is less aggravating, but noise and pollution levels are lower as a result.
As is often the case in a small borough, New Wilmington doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
