Easton: Then And Now
"I was part of the rebirth of Easton back in the early 70s. There were three Mohican marketplaces that was an old chain--one was in easton, one was in Bethlehem, one was in Allentown. My intention was to bring new businesses into Easton, so I converted it into six or seven different boutiques including my hairdressing salon, and then opened up a private nightclub disco in the basement. In three months, I had 2200 members. And I opened two weeks before Saturday Night Fever hit the big screen, so I hit a wave. But my intention was to be part of bringing Easton back again. It's getting there. If we could just get more things like the Public Market happening, because a lot of the businesses downtown are friends of mine and I said to them, 'Is this helping you?' And, yeah it is. I've never seen so much traffic as what I'm seeing now. It's a good start."
