Hah I mostly just used publicity photos from the cities' websites or photos of monuments tied to a given city (like Horseshoe Curve for Altoona, and the Reading Pagoda). I'm actually surprised myself by how many of them I have been to.

How 'bout that! According to Strong Towns, Carlisle is the country's strongest town!



Quote:
The East Coast town of 19,000 has a long history dating back to the Revolutionary War. Some of its most famous and popular draws include: historic Dickinson College, the US Army War College, several beloved restaurants and its car shows. In each iteration of the Strongest Town contest, Carlisle stood out for its diverse and supportive community, which has helped to shape this town into a truly wonderful place to live.

Carlisle's win was by a narrow margin, with Carlisle taking 52% of the votes and Hoboken taking 48%. It’s clear that we have another very Strong Towns in Hoboken, NJ and many more who competed in earlier rounds of this contest. We encourage you to read more about these towns and their successes as inspiration for your own communities.

I mostly lurk in the Philly threads and don't post, I live in Upper Bucks on the Coopersburg-Upper Saucon borders and love the Allentown updates. There's a lot going on over in Bethlehem as well with the casino at the steel mill. And St Luke's University Hospital has several projects going also, one an office building with Lehigh University.

I appreciate the time that's being put into these two cities that are coming back to life slowly. I can't believe how Hamilton Street is jumping over the past two years with the PP&L Center open.

Nice pictures Ex-Ithacan! One of these days I'll get around to taking a threads worth of photos of Lancaster and post them. And by the way, I'll be traveling to Ithaca this weekend. If I'm not too absent minded, I'll snap some photos.

Thanks for the compliment. If possible try to snap some in downtown and Collegetown (just up the hill from downtown). There's quite a bit of construction of new buildings going on there, at least for a town Ithaca's size.
