The Brass Rail

The Brass Rail

A cornerstone of Allentown’s edible heritage, The Brass Rail has welcomed guests for 86 years and counting.

First Northern Bank & Trust

First Northern Bank & Trust

If you’re a typical bank customer, you’ve probably experienced merger after merger after merger. Take the former First National Bank of Allentown. After it joined with American Bank and Trust Co., it was known as Meridian Bank. That is,  of course, until Meridian was swallowed by Corestates, which First Union bought. A little while later, it merged with Wachovia, and, fina... »

Coringrato Insurance

Coringrato Insurance

Insurance. If you’re like most people, that word elicits a good solid “blech!” whenever you read it or hear it. But that’s unfortunate, says Jane O’Malley, a co-owner of Coringrato Insurance Agency, because everyone will need some type of coverage sooner or later. She should know. O’Malley and her sister/co-owner Joan Shafer practically grew up in their father’s business. ... »

Yuengling

Yuengling America’s Oldest Brewery

Yuengling & Son Inc. “By the late 1960s, so ma... »

Tru-Comfort

Being fortunate enough to live in the United States in 2016, many of us take certain amenities for granted, such as creating false climates with the push of a button: flipping on the air conditioning in the summer and escaping from winter’s bitter embrace into the warmth of our heated homes. And then there’s the eighth wonder of the world, indoor plumbing, granting us the ... »

Dr. David Hay

Dr. David Hay

We know how a lot of things go: the child who insists she doesn’t need a sweatshirt ends up invariably shivering and whimpering three hours later; you will hit every red light on Route 512 unless you need to reach for something in the back seat and then it’s as green as Saint Patrick’s Day; and most hospitals and doctor’s offices come standard with a long wait time, three ... »
