- Suburb of Allentown, PA
Rating 2.81 out of 5 27 reviews
I’ve lived here my entire life and moving South next month. The roads are terrible. Pot holes everywhere. The borough is nothing but holes and constant stop signs at every turn.All the New Yorkers moved here. 2yrs ago rent was 1100 now I’m paying 1700. Housing/rent is insane. You can buy a dump for 200k +. Nothing to do here. People are absolutely miserable all the time.The weather sucks. Been raining two weeks now. Ten years ago you could safely walk the streets. Now I see crack heads walking Main Street banging the stop signs screaming crazy stuff Many people in this town commute 30-40 min to work since the town doesn’t offer many jobs.Warehouses are all over now and continuing to build more. Taking over all land that’s left. Traffic is insane. Only going to get worse with the trucks that will take over the town. I truly hate it here. Since NY people moved here the streets are filled with litter. If you like misery and people in your business then WELCOME TO NORTHAMPTON PA
Northampton is a quaint place surrounded by farmland, but only a short commute to the cities Bethlehem and Allentown. It is safe for families and kids, and the German department in the public schools is absolutely fantastic.
I grew up in Northampton, and I always loved the town. You’ll always have people who don’t have a good experience in the public schools, but I enjoyed the schools and all of the programs the community had to offer. Northampton feels safe, despite a few streets here and there. It’s a great place to raise a family, and close to many bigger cities and shopping. Everything you could want is about 15 minutes away! Love this town and love coming back to visit.
Certain parts of Northampton are poor. But for the most part, the community is alright, especially in the developments. The highschool is alright.
Northampton is a small town in the Lehigh Valley, with that customary small town atmosphere. The people that live here are quite stuck in their ways, in other words are close minded. Though the surrounding area is close knit, many people talk about one another and it is just a toxic environment to those who are willing to further their dreams.
Northampton was once a fun place to live. The job market here is terrible and everybody would rather commute from this town to find better jobs elsewhere in the Lehigh Valley. I think it’s a town that needs improvement in the area.
Northampton is an excellent town to live in. There are many shops on Main St. that are cute and fun to shop in. The schools are great and the people are friendly. There are dog parks, regular parks and a great community pool where people gather in the summer to cool off. I love living in Northampton. The Northampton Borough does a great Jack Frost Parade in October. That's always a fun parade to watch. I've lived here all my life and will most likely stay here once I graduate from college provided I can find a job in my field.
Jobs here in Northampton are poor and lacking advancement. People usually commute to Bethlehem or Allentown to find work. The people aren’t very welcoming and very cliquey.
Northampton is no longer an area that it used to be years ago. I enjoy that it’s minuts away from Allentown/Bethlehem. I would like to see the borough to roll out the red carpet have more job opportunities for those who want to excel.
It's hard living in Northampton. I like that I have family that resides here, but I would like to see a more friendlier neighborhood. A lot of the people that live in Northampton are very stuck up and judgmental. I've lived in this town all my life and I seen all the crap that goes on each day. A very quaint town indeed.
It's a quiet place to live, I feel like there should be more activities for children and young adults that lives in the community. The people who live in Northampton need to step up and treat this town like a welcoming community.
Northampton is a really nice town. The things I would like to see change in this town is the residents. There’s people that are nice but then they are the ones who are rude and immature. I wouldn’t raise my children in this town. People fly up and down Main St not looking where they’re going. Then you got the younger crowd that hangout by the tressle getting drunk, doing drugs, and acting stupid.
Northampton has the potential to be a quaint little town in the Lehigh Valley, however, it is run down and the people aren’t very welcoming. There’s a lot of close mindedness. However, the Rocky Movie Theatre offered $3 movies.
Average town in the Lehigh Valley, PA. The high school does not effectively prepare students for higher learning. The school district has scored average on state exams. The town itself can be better. The people that recently moved here aren’t the friendliest. If your from a certain area, they would talk down to do or act stuck up or rude.
Northampton PA is a small borough 20 min north of Allentown. It’s hard to find a job here. Your perspective of living here is either working at a cement plant or a dead end construction job.
It's great if you like small town/country settings. And there's the Roxy, this really cool old theatre with inexpensive movies :)
There is so much offered in Northampton and the surrounding areas. It is very scenic depending on where you go with lots of options for restaurants with great food and small shops to go to as well as a movie theater that has tickets for $3 for movies that are about two months old. Great friendly place to live and visit.
