If you haven’t read a newspaper or driven to Allentown in the past year, you might feel a bit like Rip Van Winkle, should you go there. Where there had been little new, there is a lot of activity – construction, new business, new residential units, restaurants… cranes are the new mechanical birds migrating to the city. The energy level is high and it is gathering attention for all the right reasons. Joining host Sally Handlon will be Megan Hill, Hamilton District Main Street Manager; Santo Napoli, owner Archive; and Peter Lewnes, 7th Street Development Committee, discussing what is happening. Maybe we can get Billy Joel to write a new song!
