"Easton's a very happening place. I've lived here my entire life and I've seen it in its old glory days when it was a great commercial hub, and then it declined. Now it's come back remarkably. There's a lot of energy here, a lot of vitality. The people of Easton are committed to its renaissance and it shows. We have a great revival in terms of restaurants, the downtown scene, the Farmers' Market. A lot of people are living downtown because it has a great vibe. It's only going to get better and better as the years go on."
"Where are we now versus ten years ago?"
"There's a greater investment in the city. A lot more activity to provide more apartments downtown; there's a real demand for that. I think one of the great things about downtown Easton is it's a very organic revival. You know, there's some really good things happening in places like Allentown and Bethlehem, too, but in Easton there seems to be a sort of natural revival that's occurring as a result of the great architecture, the people who are committed and live here, and just the right mix of ingredients to make it a very special place."
These are the stories of the people of Easton, PA
