Season's Greetings To All, Here at Newtopias, we hope everyone is having a happy holiday season.  It is hard to believe December is already upon us.  Christmas and Hannukah are on the horizon, and in a few short weeks we will say goodbye to a pleasant and productive 2014.  Thanksgiving was a wonderful success here at Newtopias.  Thanks to you, our annual food drive delivered a great boost of supplies to the Bucks County Homeless Shelter.  The vast volume of food, paper products, and almost every non-perishable item imaginable was greatly appreciated. So from all of us at the Cosack Team, we Thank You for your support, and wish you the all the best!

Newtown Borough is one of our Newtopias (and I might be a bit biased about this one). It’s a great little town, beautifully preserved and nicely laid out. Originally settled in 1684 by William Penn and just oozes with history. Take the self guided walking tour to discover the rich heritage of this community. Pop into the hardware store that first opened its door in 1869 and still operates to this day. Take in a movie at The Newtown Theatre (the first movie theatre in America)…you are getting the picture, right? In this Newtopia you can find anything from new and fancy homes to stone colonials built over 300 years ago and just about everything in between. Home to 2,300 residents whose pride of ownership is evident on every street and whose joy of living here can be found on any given Fri...
