Nothing special, but... Posted On: 11/19/2006 11:18:18 AM
I guess it depends on your background. If you lived in the middle of nowhere your whole life, Allentown will probably seem like a pretty big city to you. And it is... I think Allentown is the 3rd largest city in PA, but that doesn't make it cool. I mean look at California. The 3rd largest city there is San Jose, followed by SanFran, then Long Beach. And I can assure you my friends, Allentown is none of those places.. not even close. No palm trees, no beautiful people, no money, just..well, Allentown. I guess some would say it has its own little charm, which is probably true if you lived there your whole life and continue to do so.
I could go on and on about Allentown, but I think what it comes down to is this: If you've lived in Allentown your whole life, and know nothing better, you'll be just fine. Yeah, the city does have it's perks: You live by one of the biggest water/amusement parks in the Northeast, you're about 5 to 10 minutes away from any kind food place or clothing store, including the Promenade (high-class stores) which just debuted...but again, it's no LA or NYC. I'm getting out of this place the second I graduate, and I'm not returning except to visit the 'rents..and even they're planning on moving out once retirement comes around.
