Drugs in Allentown? It hits the news so often it becomes monotonous. In February my wife and I had to go to the area or Immaculate Conception church. At two-thirty on a very cold day we drove through Gordon and Ridge Avenue. Just before Ridge Ave. on the left side of Gordon there were two afro-americans standing outside a row home. One on each side of the door and looking like body guards. They looked so cold and the door to the house was wide open. At 15:15 driving past again there were seven or eight afro-americans standing outside and loitering. Were they drug dealers? I don't know but I do know that seeing seven unsavory-looking guys standing around on a sidewalk on a very cold weekday gives reason for caution. Seems like this area could be a sightseeing attraction for bus tours of Allentown crime scenes.

How much reason for caution would you have had if these "guys" were white??

I thought 4th Street in Allentown ran north and south, not east and west.

You're right. This is the 4th St in Bethlehem.

Maybe that'll teach the garbage from out of town to stay where they live and concentrate on ruining their own neighborhoods. Doubt it though. Ain't too bright.

Exactly. I'm assuming this was in Bethlehem, since they said East 4th Street...unless it's a typo and they meant North or South 4th Street.
