Welcome to Allentown!

The third largest city in PA!
 
Originally called "Allen's Town" due to the town's founder William Allen, the name was eventually changed to Allentown 
 
Allentown, named 19th in the list of the Top 25 Most Neighborly Cities, according to neighbor.com, ranked so highly because of the low crime rate and high rates of volunteering. “Allentown is going through a renaissance of community, with major changes and improvements being made to the downtown area that is drawing in younger professionals and generally a diverse population. Allentown is home to the Lehigh Valley IronPigs at Coca-Cola Park and the Phantoms at the PPL Center, plus there’s the Allentown Art Museum and the West End Theatre District, so the city is really becoming a booming, walkable, family-friendly destination with a little bit of something for everyone,” said Tim Tepes, president of the Greater Lehigh Valley Realtors®.
 
“In terms of charitable giving, Allentown and the Lehigh Valley are known for coming together when their neighbors are in need,” added Tepes. “The Greater Lehigh Valley Realtors®, for its 100th anniversary celebration, created a grant program to support nonprofit organizations in Lehigh, Northampton and Carbon counties. These grants allow our organization to aid nonprofits and community organizations that have been hit hard by the pandemic. Many of our Realtor® members are helping to refer organizations and nonprofits to us. That, to me, shows the Allentown and Lehigh Valley way of seeing someone in need and finding them the connection that will help them succeed. That’s simply what we do around here. Helpers are easily found.”

Allentown was a new addition to the list this year. The report said that, in addition to volunteering, low crime rates, nonprofits and happiness, there are a few other factors that make a city “neighborly,” according to survey results. Nearly 80% of respondents said they have done at least one favor for a neighbor over the last year, while 66% said they have at least two neighbors they can count on to ask to do favors like picking up mail or watering plants. And nearly two-thirds said they hang out with their neighbors a few times a year.
