Not a good place to live - 12/3/2008
Lower Macungie is not a comfortable place to live unless you are very religious (born-again evangelical Christian), into hunting and have lived here all your life (Grandparents must have been born within a 5 mile radius of where you currently live).
It is not a friendly or welcoming area. The people here are very afraid of change or the unfamiliar.
We moved to the Ancient Oaks neighborhood 3 years ago, I have never met a more unfriendly, bitter and nasty group of people. None were welcoming, smiled or introduced themselves although they have allowed their dogs to defacate in our yard with no problem. We have tried to be friendly to everyone and introduced ourselves. Our next door neighbor grunted and ignored us. The only time he spoke to us in the 3 years has been to yell at us that he's lived here for 40 years and he didn't want a fence next to his property when I was gardening - not putting up a fence - well within my own yard.
Every couple of weeks when taking my child to a park I will get approached by someone asking me what church I go to or to hear their "testimony in Jesus name".
I have been told that school here closes for the first day of hunting season.
The list of incidents goes on and on....
Please do yourself a favor - if you are considering moving to the Lehigh valley area because it seems like an inexpensive and safe place to raise a family - reconsider. Its not worth it to live in such a restrictive, backwards environment. We are counting the minutes until we can move.[read more...]
