What Bert Has To Say About Allentown-Bethlehem-Easton Metro Area

The cities of Allentown, Bethlehem, and Easton have a strong industrial and working class heritage, anchored by the enormous Bethlehem Steel works. The gigantic 500-acre mill complex, abandoned 20 years ago, and is still a formidable presence just south of downtown Bethlehem, and is likely to evolve at least in part to a preserved national park site celebrating our industrial heritage. The rest of the area is a center for mostly old-economy manufacturing with the Lucent Technologies spinoff Agere adding a not-too-prosperous high tech element. Binney & Smith, known worldwide as the maker of Crayola crayons, has its factory in the smaller Easton east along the Lehigh River.
