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

I've been exploring cities and neighborhoods for as long as I remember myself, documenting my observations and discoveries with photographs and in my journals. This mindful wondering has inspired and greatly fueled my design and research work, parts of which I'm sharing in this journal. Drop me a line at editor@arthurious.com
