Allentown has not changed in many years.it is a place to experience a wide variety of bars, restaurants and places to shop. Parking is tough but it's definitely worth the visit. My favorite place is Nietzsche's however their are many classic bars to see.

There are a number of good restaurants in the area, as well as shops. There are night spots too. Parking can be a challenge in evenings when it is busier.
