Last Fall, at a community meeting I organized about Lanta, an elderly citizen told how Mayor Pawlowski raged against her for having frequent sidewalk sales. As a mugging victim, she couldn't understand how he was more concerned with her sales than the attack against her. I later learned a gentleman was mugged on the way to the meeting. Last night Allentown provided a solution, not against the muggers, but against the sidewalk sales.* Councilman Peter Schweyer, also a member of the Lanta Board, introduced this landmark legislation. Unfortunately, the Hamilton Street merchants didn't fare well against Lanta. Several have left Hamilton Street, including the only drug store. It's tough being old in downtown Allentown.
