It's a supporting post or column on stairways. Some staircases have more than one. The handrail generally connects into the newel post.

It's somewhat like a heavy duty baluster at the base of the stairway and is the most difficult to break when sliding down the banister. Weeeeeeeee!

A newel post is a component of a stairway railing.... the structure on the first tread that supports the balustrade...

The central supporting pillar of a spiral staircase. It can also refer to an upright post that supports the handrail of a stair banister.
