Hi Todd,
In our family research I find that when an ancestor  refers to "Neust[d}t" the reference means "new town".  In our case the town is Shirvinit, in Lithuania which was referred to by these alternating names. 
Here is a list of some places around Europe with Neustadt in the name follwed by another place name.
