Look what I found when I came home…….

Home has been abandoned for THREE YEARS. City of Allentown does nothing but post stupid warnings to boarded up front door. I come home from work today and find men in white HAZMAT suits dumping contents of house into front yard.

No dumpster, no permit, and the city still takes no action.

And my block is in the NIZ – Neighborhood Improvement Zone …Yup, this is real “Neighborhood Improvement”.


When is the City of Allentown going to seriously address the blight in our neighborhoods surrounding center city/downtown? BILLIONS have been and will be spent on central business district, and just a few blocks away we have to deal with this?
