A once thriving city until the mid 1990's. There was a large department store called Hess' (not related to the gas station) the owner was a notorious sodimite. Hess' as well as Bethlehem Steel were major employers in the area. In the mid 1990's Allentowns mayor who is incorrectly renowned as the greatest mayor took title 8 funding. This funding gave money to cities that inplimented low income high density housing. Almost immediately after this the Allen and Dieruff High Schools fell to perinial jokes in test scores and sports. Prior to this parents from areas like parkland paid tuition to send there children to Allen and Dieruff. Since this title 8 funding the city of allentown is infested with chronic unemployment, and incredibly low income. Add to this many illegal immigrants who cant speak english, gangs, and Hess' and Bethlehme steel going belly up and the city has since become a sespool as well as the high schools with Allen having three students shot outside its school last week and a stabbing in school last year.

Allentown is not predominately 'white'. As per an article in The Morning Call, the major race is Hispanic (mainly Puerto Rican) at approximately 91%. And according to a recent 'street' survey while serving an 18 month sentence at Lehigh County Prison, located in the heart of Allentown on 4th and Hamilton Streets, Allentown is 87% made of of 'rats' or more specifically, 'confidential informants'. It is a heavily drug-ridden area, mostly serving heroin and crack cocaine. They are in the process of building a multiplex Hockey Arena on 7th & Hamilton, in what most call the 'Belly of the Beast' where MOST of the drug crime occurs. There is a mass amount of prostitution, homelessness and a heavily-used and populated bus station operated by LANTA Bus Lines that houses hundreds of drug addicts and homeless individuals scouring the open spaces asking for money and using the extremely dirty and soiled restrooms in the Dunkin Donuts facility within the terminal, to use their drug of choice.

It is NOT a great place to raise children. The schools are completely dangerous and the city is completely taken over by Latin Kings Gang and various other little street gangs; for example, each and every street has a gang.

I hope that you have made up your mind about moving there or even visiting (passing through) in fear of possibly getting carjacked. Also, if you currently LIVE there, then this should be a reminder and a warning, maybe it's time to find another place to sleep at night.
"Ay bro! Can you believe this, man?!"

"What happened?"

"I was just robbed at gunpoint after I got beat on a crack deal!"

"Where at, bro; let's get'em?!"

"Allentown, man."

"Nah, nevermind, you're on your own; that's what you get for dealing with those damned Puerto Ricans."

The third-most populous city in Pennsylvania, following Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. It is best known for being the subject and title of a popular Billy Joel song. Most importantly, I have no idea what the first definition is referring to, as the city is predominantly white. There has been an increase in crime, most notably prostitution, so maybe the hookers are the ones with exposed, saggy breasts.
Allentown is 60 miles from Philly

One of the nicest places in Pennsylvania. Home of Dorney Park and some of the friendliest people. Murder Rate was low in 2005, only 11 people. That's below average for a big state like that. There is people who can leave their keys in their car while its running and nothing will happen. I know this because i go there every weekend to get out of the hood. That's maybe the reason while the murder rate was 11 and not a lower number because alot of people go to Allentown to get out of the slums and move to a better place to change their life. Too many people cluddered in one place from alot of different hoods is going to eventually fight because it's the way they grew up. Learning to mean mug and grill others and it'll be a fight from there.
Allentown is such a great city to live in and do not believe any of the gossip that goes around saying that its bad with alot of black people roaming around with crack heads because Allentown's government won't allow anyone to roam around homeless and it's more white people in the city than any other race.

A town in Pennsylvania that has a most excellent Fair called the , "Great Allentwon Fair," which had a concert showing The Magic Numbers, Ween, Sonic Youth, and the all amazing Flaming Lips. The Flaming Lips of which had a very elaborate performance including streamers, confetti, human sized hamster balls, santa clauses, aliens, smoke machines, strobe lights, a giant pair of hands, japanese people, teletubbies, and a nun.
Wow, I love Allentown purely because of it's entertainment.
