Allentown, Not Much For History
For years my efforts have concentrated on trying to save those historical structures unique to our area. Although I may occasionally still succumb to that compulsion in the future, hopefully, most of my protest will now be limited to posts on this blog. I pleaded to no avail with too many commissions with predetermined agendas. Let the less disillusioned plead to the deaf ears behind those dais.
Shown above is the former LVRR railroad station on Hamilton Street, which was demolished in the early 1960's. The existing train station was the New Jersey Central. Allentown never met a unique older building that it couldn't wait to tear down.
