How long have you lived there ? I lived in that neighborhood for a year about 5 years ago, and I heard everything you mentioned. One fight included my car being dented, and splattered with blood. There's graffiti everywhere, including gang tags. You can walk in a 2 block circle, and find a handful of empty drug bags, and at least one or 2 bullet casings. Young children are allowed to run loose, and have filthy mouths and no respect for adults or property. I really don't understand how anyone can't see this, but if you haven't, here's a news article about a man shot and killed 1/2 block away, just 4 months ago.

I agree with u I grew up in allentown and lived their up to about 8 yrs ago and let me tell ya Allentown went to hell. Once the hispanic's started comeing across the 8th street bridge to live it all went to hell you should just call it Reekinville.They do what they want stay out all hours of the night even little kids because the parents don't care. When you drive by they stand in the middle of the street and won't move
and I yell out my window if you don't move I will f***en hit you I am so glad I don't live around their anymore.(Allentown is a dump)

Despite any of the circumstances in the area, this wasn't due to any of those. This was in her own home, no break in; it was her brother in law. No matter where you are there are dangers, whether you live in the city or the outskirts. Crime is all around us. Some don't want to believe it, but read 2 Timothy 3:1-5.

To whoever wants to make racist comments, you are only showing your ignorance. Jenny was a friend of mines and her family has always been very loving. They are going through a very difficult time and have been hit with a double whammy...

why everytime something happens in Allentown,(murder,drugs,abuse) racist comments have to be made. So ignorant!PEOPLE kill, PEOPLE rape, PEOPLE abuse, PEOPLE use drugs. It doesn't have anything to do with RACE, the only reason why it has been seen in Allentown so much lately(w/hispanics) it's because the hispanic population in Allentown has increased ALOT over the years. I'm spanish and i know how loud and obnoxious spanish people can be, i actually hang around white people more often than spanish at the college i'm in,but like i said PEOPLE do things NOT the RACE!

I never said it had anything to do with what I mentioned. I was merely responding to the person who said it was a quiet neighborhood. I lived there. It's not. By my account, and the other murder 4 months ago.
For the record, regarding dangers everywhere, none of the things I mentioned have happened in my new neighborhood in 5 years, let alone 1. They may happen, but your odds are better of coming across all of the things I mentioned in certain areas. That's a fact you can't deny.

Seems like most of you people have caught on to what allentown is. I knew that 25 or 30 years ago. I never drive through there unless I have to. it should be BULLDOZED from one end to the other. Give it to the ricans and let them kill each other off!

You are the most obnochous person ive seen so far, also stupid , 65 percent of the Spanish in allentown are Dominican, the other 35 percent apr Purto Rican., Mexican and other Spanish. As soon as it a spanish name you people just say it.s a rican. If you don,t know the difference between the Spanish nations keep your dirty mouth shut, and no i,m not Spanish, i,m white.but people like you make me wish i wasen,t

wow! How lovely! "no one should be shedding a tear over a dead brownie" It sounds like you are one of those "lovely individuals" who care more about an animal than a human being! The type that goes mad when a dog doesn't have a home but ignores a homeless man begging for food! Be careful what you say because it CAN happen to you. But what can be said? "as long as it wasn't my brownie"...

Sadly Allentown is not what it used to be. So is the rest of the country and the world. It doesn't have to do with what color your skin is but about the disobedience. God gave us 10 commandments. If we were to follow them, this world would be closed to perfect. One of them is "love your neighbor as you love yourself". The problem is that in this time it is all about me me me.
