City Hits Home Run
The Homebuyer's Supermarket, sponsored by the City of Allentown, was a well organized, well attended event. Filling the entire floor of the Palace Banquet Hall, prospective home buyers were greeted by three full midways of realtors, mortgage originators and community organizations. Intended to spur responsible home ownership in the city, the timing was perfect; warm weather, low interest rates, and a generous federal tax credit. Shown in the photo are the new townhouses on North St., which have replaced the devastation from a fire in 2004.
