If I were with several people I would walk. It's only 4 blocks. There is a lot of crime in Allentown, but most of it is gang-related and doesn't generally happen along the Hamilton Street corridor that you're talking about.

There are some taxi services in Allentown, but they don't really cruise around looking for fares - you basically have to call ahead. If you're not comfortable walking perhaps the staff at the Crowne Plaza would be able to arrange a pick up for you. It's probably worth asking them about it.

There are cops on bikes where you will be walking., and with four people, you should be fine.
