More and more buildings being demolished making room for City Centre. The new Allentown image being created by a single mayor that has done more then any other put together. Keep up the great work Ed. We can't wait for the building to start very soon. Good luck in Harrisburg as Governor after your re-election here in your city.

Yup, the plan is all falling into place. As the city turns into a bigger shiiithole, the more businesses will have to be brought in to pay for services.
I'd still like to see an example of a place where that plan worked and the city's residents ended up better off.

I will give you an in-state example: Pittsburgh (Three Rivers Stadium). There you go. And it's not turning into a bigger s__hole. You might hope it will, but it sure as hell won't because we have the best person in charge; our next governor, Mr. Ed Pawlowski. Why don't you Google what other cities benefited from arenas, business, and downtown revitalization. Allentown is on it's way up and it is obvious. But we will always have the name callers and envious people from surrounding areas.

Are you kidding me ? LMAO !!! I'm having a hard time deciding what part of your asinine post is the most funny. Comparing a baseball field that was built in an area that already had baseball, to trying to start something new and have it work, or that you actually think there's a reason on this earth why anyone in the burbs would be jealous of Allentown. LMAO !! I can enjoy your restaurants and other facilities and let morons like you live in the shiiithole. I wouldn't make fun of people in surrounding areas if I were you either. Those people are the ones that will frequent those places and make sure Allentown can meet their cash need since the city itself is full of people below the poverty line. It won't be your neighbors buying hockey tickets or eating at the fancy new place on 6th st.
What proof do you have other than your word that Pittsburgh was better for it anyway ? And I thought YOU wanted to compare similar sized cities ?
I asked you to prove yourself. I'm not going to Google anything, because I'm not the one making idiotic claims.

He isn't going to google anything because he's just here to bust your rump. He doesn't even live in the city yet degrades it with every post. It's comical to think that he sits there and smiles while he posts, probably laughs. Ignorance does strange things to people.

Wrong. Your the one making idiotic claims saying this city is turning into a bigger sh__hole." How is that when blight is being turned into newly constructed businesses that will generate tax revenue for our citizens.? Revitalization has to start with something and this particular one in Allentown is starting off with a BANG. Hate it all you want. Mr. Pawlowski has single-handedly turned this now great city into one with little hope, into one with a huge chance of overall success in every aspect of daily living and how it governs itself. That is the point you conveniently disregard in every Allentown bashing post you type. Things are falling into place in multiple scenarios just in time for the puck to drop and for this genius to be re-elected. Oh yeah, your also wrong that my neighbors and fellow "Allentownians" wont be buying tickets to see the Phantoms. Everyone I know can't wait to go and think it will be packed.

I see you still have a big mouth, but the one thing that never comes out of it is any kind of proof that anything being done will make the quality of life better in the shiiithole. Replacing one commercial property for another isn't the same thing. There's still NOTHING being done that will help with all the blighted residential properties. I've given examples of exact situations that didn't work and the only example you came up with was building a new ballpark for a team that already existed in a city that's not "of comparable size" like you always spout off about.
Come on Ward Rat, just admit it's all a pipe dream. You've got nothing that guarantees it's success and I've given you two examples of the same thing failing.
Think about all that the next time your neighborhood is locked down like it was this past summer. Again, something that's never happened where I live now.

Look up, "burden of proof".
I don't waste my time googling things other people claim. Not my job. You say it, you prove it.

"He doesn't even live in the city yet degrades it with every post"

I lived there for more years than you've most likely been alive. And what's your affiliation with Allentown again ?
