Looking for an affordable apartment in Eastern Pennsylvania in a city with a lot of history and a growing economy? Then Allentown, PA is the place to be. Allentown is the third most populous city in Pennsylvania behind Pittsburgh and Philadelphia and it offers an ideal working and living environment. It is also considered one of the fastest growing cities in Pennsylvania. Located in Lehigh Valley, it shares the area with two other cities called Bethlehem and Easton. Allentown is also an ideal location as it is only 96 miles from New York City, 55 miles from Philadelphia, 85 miles from Harrisburg and 152 miles from Baltimore.

Allentown is separated into five districts called the Center City, East Side, South Side, The Wards and the West End. For people looking for an art community with tones of eclectic shopping areas and small boutiques then 7th Street in Center City will accommodate them nicely. For more cultural attractions, you should look for apartments closer to the downtown region of Center City as there are several historical landmarks in the region. Budding artists and people interested in the performing arts will love living in the West End Theatre District as it is near the Muhlenberg College and Fairgrounds Farmers Market.
