The area is called Easton in Pennsylvania state. It's a small city with a few townships connecting to it. The atmosphere has been changing to a more artsy, chill place. There's local farmers market every Saturday that usually sells organic or natural goods. Easton supports there local artists during these farmers market. Easton hosts fun festivals throughout the summer like the bacon fest, and garlic fest. A few places actually have their artwork in there businesses. There's interesting stores like a few skin clinics, victorian store, unique cafes, and restaurants.Easton is part of the Lehigh Valley region which is has more options in Bethlehem, and Allentown like Musik Fest. Easton is located next to the Delware river and only an hour away from New York City and Philadelphia. The future for this area is becoming more interesting for tourists and the locals. Predicting there will be more support for local businesses, and keeping the artsy appeal!

In the last few years the city has been improving (slowly but surely). There are more locally source options than before and at a decent price. Most of the locally sources come from PA. Ethnic cuisine has increase in the last few years which is great! Kosher is lacking and someone would need to pack their own lunch/dinner instead of eating out.
There's some great stores like local stores (candy, antiques, and clothing) that are around the area. This area has a few colleges and it's has the college town feel to it. However, the colleges are outside the city so there won't be any disturbance for the students (drinking, and smoking).
