Have enjoyed the Art Fest years ago. One of the few bright spots in a delapidated city. Interesting buildings and some good businesses. Needs more police surveillance but otherwise decent area.

It's a block from where I live. It's pretty lively and nice to walk around for the shops and food places. Compared to anything outside downtown Buffalo, this is pretty nice.I like seeing people and activities where I live. Makes the city more interesting.

Allentown is a relatively stable residential area in the city. By Buffalo standards it is gentrified, but by other city's standards it is just a middle of the road neighborhood in the urban core.

Allentown has not changed in many years.it is a place to experience a wide variety of bars, restaurants and places to shop. Parking is tough but it's definitely worth the visit. My favorite place is Nietzsche's however their are many classic bars to see.

We attempted to visit Allentown and found out that on a Friday morning at 9:30 am the entire area was asleep. Either everyone in this area is out at the bars until 4 am or they are business owners who do not need money! We...More
