Review of Allentown, Pennsylvania

Great Place to Live
Star Rating - 4/26/2009
Allentown is a great place to live and raise a family. We have lived in in a historic house in center city for the last 12 years and just love it. We have two children ages six and ten. We have a tremendous park system, good schools and inexpensive quality of life. The city has an excellent art museum, Baum school of art, discovery science center and symphony hall, all with wonderful childrens programs and classes. If your kids are into art and science this is the place to live. Many new companies are also moving into the area. I would recommend this city to new families, it has many great qualities that make it a great place to live, work and play.

Pawlowki? Isn't that the name of the Mayor of Allentown? And doesn't he live in center city? Must be a coincidence!
