I have lived in Bethlehem my entire life. It's small and some people dislike it but I enjoy it here. There's always something going on and new places, shows, restaurants. It is very up and coming but still has that historic charm to it on Main St and especially during Christmas time, thanks to the City of Bethlehem and many non-profit companies taking the time to decorate and really make it the Christmas City.

I have been here since 5th grade and I feel like its a very safe friendly area to live in. I never felt unsafe here and people are so great and very nice!
My intitula oorion when first moving here: It’s a large city with a small town feel. People are friendly and respectful.
Times have changed since moving her over 9 years ago. Overdevelopment has changed my initial view in the is town. It’s unfortunate to see these negative changes. People are not as firemsly or polite.
