A Day in Allentown, PA

Allentown has probably received very little attention since Billy Joel wrote the eponymous song in 1982. Once considered a historic architecture mecca of the area, in the last decade, Allentown has gained little else but a dozen of parking buildings sometimes taking up a full street block.

Local religious architecture is quite eclectic to say the least





Power outlets available for everyone on the street
Many buildings are still delighting the passer-by with details of a bygone era






Most of the signage on the main street is executed in a similar manner : overworked laser-cut constructions

Viva la parking

Allentown is quite ambivalent itself
