Newton – a suburb of Sydney Australia (state of New South Wales), 10 minutes outside of the CBD. Notable for a colourful bohemian population numerous off-beat boutique stores and a variety of international food outlets, a lot of them Thai. Exemplary of Sydney’s reviled Terrace House architecture it is historically a working-class suburb. The neighbouring University of Sydney provides a regular stream of student clientele. The older and more rundown parts offer comparatively cheaper rents than other inner-city suburbs although as with most of this area of Sydney it is slowly being renovated, attracting more affluent residents. Together with adjacent suburbs of Enmore, Stanmore Camperdown and St. Peters Newtown is notorious as a focus for alternative youth cultures including punk, stoner, goth, metal and hippie. Not exclusive to any of these, the main drag – King Street is renowned for a variety of pubs and clubs including “Townie” (Town Hall), Coopers Arms, The Bank and Zanzibar, to name a few.

A wealthy town in Connecticut that is most oftenly used in conjunction with the phrase "THERE IS NOTHING TO DO". There is so little to do in fact, that the teenage population has resorted to hanging out in the "Center", a designated hangout spot located in the parking lot of the local grocery store. With no place to go, they spend their days wasting their rich parent's money on alcohol, weed, coke, heroin, and buying new cars- most often Mustangs and BMWs. Smoking in cars, partying in the woods, and banging each other are typical activities that constantly go around the school.
Person 1: I'm from Newtown.

In upper-middle class, very historic and sterile town in Bucks county, PA. It's about 30 minutes outside of Philadelphia. Although most of the newcomers are rich New Yorkers and New Jersyens who both want less taxes and regulation(guns) and Mayberry. The town is about 91% white not counting the old farts wich brings it up to probably 96% white. The town is as cute as it gets with a gap store and movie theatre right downtown.

It has basically obtained the crown of premiere suburb of middle bucks county away from yardley. Although Yardley has on old-money estate area east of it's downtown along with throngs of McMansions everywhere. Yardley is also right on the train line to Philadelphia.

The town is pretentious, yet is not impenetrable. You will find alot of decent folks there.

Great place to raise a family. Alot nearby; historical sites, New Hope, Lahaska, Philadelphia, Delaware river towns, Princeton.

The highschool kids probably are surrounded with a difficult drug and alcohol matrix around them. But what high school doesn't.
Kid one: Who are moving from Yardely to Newtown next month.

Kid two: Why are you moving like only 1 mile away from your current house. Yardley's old-school, Newtown is where it's at now.

Kide one: Oh I get it, your about to graduate middle school and Pennsbury high's academics pale in comparison to Council Rock.

The place where you throw parties every night and have the parents buy the keg, then playing against those parents in beer pong while smoking blunts on the side lines, and ashing cigarettes on the floor. We have someone scope out where the DUI checks are before hand so that we can all avoid drunk driving through those areas and drunk drive on windy backroads instead and nearly die. If sleeping at the party, you will find bodies scattered throughout the entire house & then all take a hungover field trip to the Blue Colony Diner the next morning and leave no tip.

Where do you even begin to explain this smalltown up north in the state of Connecticut?

Newtown's residents include many wealthy families, and yet many unwealthy to average families. The town has a gist of each four seasons, feeling the hot, cold, windy, stormy, rainy, snowy, or average weather. Although Sandy Hook is classified as a separate town, it is commonly included in Newtown, seeing as people from both towns attend Newtown Middle School and Newtown High School.

The teenagers in Newtown range on and off from the popular cliche cliques. Most of what happens in this town seems like it is some television show due to the amount of people that:
-smoke pot daily to on the weekends
-come out as bisexual, gay, lesbian, or not sure
-post or show pictures of nudity
-lie to their parents and/or siblings
-have sex or sexual encounters with a couple to many partners before graduating high school
-take birth control or use condoms
-end up being pregnant
-have an abortion, keep their baby, suffer miscarraige, or give their baby up for adoption
-get an std
-perform self-mutilation (cutting, burning, bruising, etc)
-end up with mental disorder (depression, anxiety, etc)
-develop eating disorders (anorexia, bulimia, overeating, etc)
-drink many times per week, most of the time just to get drunk
-end up in the hospital (for physical and/or mental reasons)
-become severely injured
-need prescription medication
-cheat on their significant other
-cheat on tests, homework, and whatnot
-steal or shoplift
-dye their hair (highlights, combination of colors, brown, blonde, black, red, green, blue, purple, pink, etc)
-end up in therapy or having to go to a special school
-become friends with many people from other towns (brookfield, hartford, shelton, danbury, redding, trumbull, etc)
-spend most to all of their free time on myspace, facebook, and/or aim
-walk throughout the town or hitch rides
-experience their parents divorce, become ill, or pass on
-become suicidal
-skip classes
-run away
-get low self esteem
-get piercings and gages (with or without parental consent; ears, belly button, eyebrows, nose, lip, tongue, facial, etc)
-get tattoos underage
-experiment smoking various things
-experiment with many types of drugs
-sell drugs
-threaten someone (accidently, jokingly, purposely, etc)
-obtain weapon (pocket knife, gun, etc)
-use weapon
-have older-aged people buy them cigarettes
-smoke cigarettes underage and become addicted by or before legal age
-become attention seeking and attempt to do something listed above
-have a similar or different problem than what is listed above
-not be one of the people with such common problems like listed above

Although it may seem that half to three fourths of a teenager's grade does many of those things, there are some good to well-rounded students that have thought about many of those various issues, known someone or many people with one or more of those various issues, made a decision not to do or be associated with any of those things, and try to do well in school.

Many middle schoolers tend to walk after school to local places like:
-big y (including the parking lot)
-dunkin donuts
-andrea's bakery
-dynasty chinese food
-the ice cream shop
-general store

Many hang outs for a wide range of teenagers include:
-the center (big y and the stores surrounding it)
-friend's houses
-woods and streets
-teen center (inside, outside)
-football games
-edmond town hall (inside, behind, in front)
-loews/amc theaters
-local stores
-danbury mall

It could be that in this town you will:
-meet the best friends of your life
-lose the best friends of your life
-fall in and/or out of peer pressure
-find someone that you love
-lose someone that you love
-witness some not great moments
-witness some very great moments
-laugh and cry
-learn something (whether it's from school or not)
-find out what you are passionate about
-feel let down or like you have messed up
-regain what you have lost
-reach self-discovery
