This is a local event where the roads are blocked to enable shops of handicrafts and art and fancy jewellery with some latin american music and antiques adding colours to the art fest. This was a very interesting place for roaming around. This happened June 11 and June 12, 2016. I am not sure when it happens again, when it... More

It was a good summer afternoon to stroll in the area. It's busy but definitely has a community character to it. The shops are mainly "local".

sort of the "soho" side of the Elmwood village (see other review), this area has loosened up quite a bit with the elimination of one-way driving, make it accessible from all directions... not a LOT of shops, but active nightlife, too active for some, particularly as the hours get larger, then wee small

Such a pretty area. Love to look at all the buildings. Would love to live in this area. We visit every June for the Allentown Art Festival. They have some beautiful quality art to see.

Trendy, hipsterish part of Buffalo. Some interesting bars and nightlife. Nice, historic residential side streets. Reminded me a little of Toronto's West Queen West areas.

Really good for bar hopping. The crowd varies but I would say mostly a younger crowd. Seems a little sketchy at night but it is generally safe and fun!

What a great little area loaded with shops, restaurants, and bars. Parking can be sticky, but well worth the trouble. Unique little shops, good restaurants serving a variety of cuisine, great architecture, adorable little homes. People are friendly and helpful. Small business is back in Allentown!

I held a One Crazy Summer book club for my daughter and her friends from dance and one of our moms treated the girls to a Paint Party at Paint the Town on Allen St. We had so much fun! Our group consisted of 7-11 year old girls (and one teenage boy) who felt like they "didn't know how to... More
