To learn a little more about Allentown and see garden gates and period architecture, go to Green Apples and the post Garden Walk Buffalo Gardens – Allentown #4 . I worked at an architecture firm in Allentown for many years. It was a great place to work as the town inspired creativity everyday. When you are surrounded by color, lively pattern, and funky forms like on the main street, Allen Street, you feel part of the environment and experience.
There is a vibe of being in another place and time, a Bohemian sensation all around. The shops, restaurants and bar express this so well. Many artists live in Allentown and the Allentown Art Festival is held here each year. You can find the most interesting art pieces as artists come from all over the country to participate.
Next post, I will show gardens in the Cottage District on both blogs. This is the most popular area to visit on the Walk. Like Allentown the gardens are tiny, but filled to the brim with perennials. Ellie’s Garden, featured on Green Apples is in the Cottage District.
