  • Housing Statistics Median home sales price in the city is $128,500, down from a high of $140,000 before the 2008 bust, but up nearly 17 percent over the same period last year. Average listing price has climbed steadily over the last year and now stands at nearly $198,000 across the city. Median rental prices, however, are relatively depressed at $900 - down nearly 12 percent over the same period last year. The number of transactions has remained unsteady over the last five years, dropping from a high over nearly 700 in 2007 to 400 in 2013.

  • Local Sports Allentown has a strong sporting culture, especially when it comes to baseball. The sport got its start in the city way back in 1884. Today, the Lehigh Valley IronPigs - the only Major League affiliated baseball team in the city since 1960 - competes in the International League. Its home is in Coca-Cola Park, a brand new stadium built in 2008 that has quickly become a local pilgrimage site for baseball lovers. Allentown was also home to the Allentown Jets, one of the most dominant teams competing in the Eastern Professional Basketball League. Unfortunately, the team shut shop in 1981 and the city has been bereft of a major basketball team since. The city does have a strong hockey team - the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, which is an affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers.
