Allentown's Big One
Allentown is like Fred Sanford, waiting for the big one. Redd Foxx played Fred, a junkman, who whenever stressed, was expecting the big heart attack, which would join him with his deceased wife.
The Morning Call has been speculating that perhaps ADP is the new Reilly tenant that will finally revitalize downtown....that ADP might be the big one. Reilly doesn't have to count his baby chicks, the Morning Call does that for him.
There will be more people walking around during lunch hour, but besides that, don't expect much. There is no vibe in center city to motivate anybody to stay there beyond their work hours. Each new building by Reilly has less architectural merit than the preceding blue glass box.
The only excitement will be in the Morning Call articles, describing the big one.
