No Place in the World That Can Compare


For most of my adult life, I would have told you how New York City has no place that can compare to it. That’s true. Nothing compares to New York City. It’s the greatest city in the world, and it’s an awesome place to go.

There’s nothing that compares to life here in the Lehigh Valley either. We have small cities. We have townships. We have backwood villages. We have mountains around us, forests, and rivers. Colleges, sports teams, and concerts. We also have real live communities. Easton, Bethlehem, Whitehall, Phillipsburg, Nazareth, Northampton, Emmaus, Hellertown, and yes, Allentown. We can drive to big cities or the shore in a short period of time. We have history and tradition right here. You can be entertained here. You can grow up here. You can work here. You can live here. You’re near the center of everything in American culture, yet you’re here.

When i’m 75 and sitting on my front porch, I want that porch to be here. This place is the best.
