I didn't find any either (relocating to DE for grad school, from WI). The only rentals I've seen for Hockessin are the ones listed by Realtors.

There really aren't any apartment complexes in Hockessin, but there are a lot of apartments, condos and townhouses in nearby Pike Creek where there are plenty of rentals.

And I believe Pike Creek (which is more an area than a town) was listed in Money Magazine's top 100 best small towns (2007 issue recently released). It really is a nice area.

Anyone have any websites that list apartments in the Pike Creek area?? Thanks! I notice it's a high rent (meaning income levels are fairly high) district. Are the rents also pretty high, comparatively??

Thumbs down Racism in Hockessin??

Im not happy about Hockessin, first the population is 87.4% white and when getting gas today we were threatened and harassed by a guy, in his thirties, running the store in all black and that showed a arm fulll of swastikas, are they really ok with people like that running the show because I would think that someone would say something but no, the minority there is 3.2 chinese which mind their business I would assume and keep to themseleves and 2.0% Hispanic which I would assume come only from elsmere outside of hockessin because their are so many hispanics running the mushroom farms all throughout hockessin so that does not make any sense, their definately not living in Hockessin! They have little shacks right over the pennsylvania border (5 minutes away) that they have to live in. Another thing is the PAL center which is Police Athletic League which set to reach out to "At-risk" children but that doesn't make any sense when hockessins crime rate is nearly non-existant (please, somebody tell me where i can find hockessins crime statistics) and wilmington, even Newark (15 minutes away) have a substantially higher crime rate than Hockessin so somebody tell me how that works out or is that just a ploy to get taxpayers to pay for this fun new facility that has such a minimal amount of activities for these at-risk children than Wilmington that its too funny and so obvious its chilling. You know how long it took us to get the cops: 1 HOUR!!! We were told that they do not just dispatch people and they come they have to "free up" cops to respond because apparently Hockessin which has its special POLICE ATHLETIC LEAGUE (Is this some secret society, its starting to look it), and oddly this skinhead in disguise wore a masonic tatoo right below all his swastikas (all 7s). Today was a very enlightening day and I have alot of love for the beauty of Hockessin but is it really that welcoming of a home? you decide.

No offense dude, but welcome to the freakin suburbs, lol.

That swastika dude was likely from Maryland. Hockessin is not an outwardly racist area. They might have gated communities to try to keep the area clean, but the area is very liberal and rich for Delaware period.

I really gotta say you just had a bad experience.. Hockessin is a wanted area to live in. Yeah, its white.. but not hick white.

Hockessin is mostly newer neighborhoods with large homes, which = mostly younger, educated young families. Your experience was isolated... but interesting.... did you contact the owner of the store? My guess is a freak like that won't be working there for very long.

I'd love to hear more about what happened to you. I'm wondering if this is a gas station where I go.

I absolutely agree with you about the PAL center.
