“A fun place for food and drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

Allentown has a decent amount to offer with new and old spots for dinner and drinks. A more residential feel than the Elmwood bar strip or Chippewa district.

“Great party street”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012 via mobile

From pre-drinks to closing down the bars, at 4am, this is the place to be! Good eats and fun places to party can all be found on this strip. It's not that long either, so you can do the whole street in one night.

“Love living here!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

I live in Allentown and love everything about it. It is safe, there is always something to do, and everything is in walking distance. There are bars, restaurants, book stores, art galleries, festivals, art galleries, etc. Everything I need is in walking distance of where I live and everyone in the area are very nice and neighborly. It is close to 2 major highways so it is easy to get anywhere in Western New York. It has the charm of city living without the chaos and is very charming. I love living here and will continue to live here. Love it!!!!!!!!!!!

“Grungy but fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

Gritty little neighborhood in Buffalo. Lots of bars, shops, restaurants and one of a kind people. Lots of homeless people, but they are harmless. Very crowded at night with bar hoppers (every night of the week). Very safe and cheap! Kind of dirty and grungy though. If you don't mind puke on the sidewalk and lots of hipsters and homeless people, then this is your neighborhood.
