What Renters Like and Dislike

What Renters Like and Dislike About Bethlehem

Quiet , well lit at night,friendly neighbors .There is a barber shop around the corner and plenth of places to eat.There is a walking path very close to my house which is very convenient.

I live close to shopping, grocery store and the highway even though it's not right in the neighborhood. There alot of good restaurants within 15 minutes of our neighborhood. I'm ery close to my Dad if he needs anything

friendly noloud partys alcohol is kept to minimal, school, drug store and bank close by a lot of respectful dog walkers frendly neigbors

We have tree lined streets with green spaces surrounding it. The community developers seem to have a plan. There are very good supermarkets within walking distance. We have a unique and quaint downtown area with historic sites, restaurants and small shops.

It is unique because it is a small area and you actually know your neighbors. It is near our historical downtown that is full of great restaurants and bars. Lots of shopping too. We go downtown with our family and our guests. I love the great outdoor events.

Close to any store or banks. People I grew up with and friends. I live in the city but there is nice more country areas not far to go to with hiking trails

Steel manufacturing first put the city on the map but health care, biotech and high-tech businesses are keeping it there. The city welcomes startups and has a wealth of incentives to offer entrepreneurs. Plus, apartments are affordable and the community enjoys a low crime rate. Those are just some of the reasons Money Magazine ranked Bethlehem among its top 100 Best Places to Live in 2008.

Bethlehem has the charm and character of a university town. Maybe that's because the area is dense with schools and colleges. Bethlehem Unified is the sixth largest school district in the state. The township is also home to Moravian College, a private liberal arts college, and Lehigh University, ranked in the top tier among national research institutions by U.S. News & World Report. With so many schools, the community supports a robust public library and the charming Moravian Bookshop, reportedly the oldest operating bookstore in the nation and located on historic Main Street.

The beautiful Lehigh River flows through the center of Bethlehem, forming a natural divider between the north side with its galleries and historic shopping district and the newly urbanized south side. But no matter which side of town your apartment is in, there's tons to do. From boating and fishing on the Lehigh River to taking in historic museums to strolling through the town's many galleries.
