New Castle is regarded as both the "Hot Dog Capital of the World" and the "Fireworks Capital of America". Its chili dogs are the product of Greek immigrants who arrived in New Castle in the early 20th century and established restaurants along with their homes. The notoriety for fireworks is credited to two local fireworks companies, S. Vitale Pyrotechnic Industries, Inc. (Pyrotecnico) and Zambelli Internationale.

During World Wars I and II, and the Korean War, industry enjoyed a temporary reprieve. Despite recent economic challenges, New Castle has been transformed from its reliance on industry to a diverse economic base consisting of manufacturing, retail, and service related business establishments.
