Hugh Moore Canal

Hugh Moore Canal

“All history is local,” historian Joseph Amato once wrote. Few Lehigh Valley sites better illustrate the truth of those words than Hugh Moore Park and the National Canal Museum, where visitors can learn not only about local history but also about the region’s ties to America’s Industrial Revolution. The 520-acre park, situated between the Lehigh Canal and Lehigh River in E... »

SangriaFest

SangriaFest

Dear Lehigh Valley, we’ve just about made it to summer. It’s a time of fireworks and grilling, of camping and fairs—a time when our biggest complaints are how much sand is stuck in our swimsuits and how the humidity is ruining our hair. How sweet it is, no? What’s even sweeter is fruit-filled wine, and ’tis the season. Known as sangria, this ubiquitous on-the-rocks libatio... »

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.

Always Tired? Maybe It’s Sleep Apnea

Always Tired? Maybe It’s Sleep Apnea

During a routine checkup in 2015, Jeanette Dauphin mentioned to her physician she was always tired. Because of the exhaustion, she sometimes had difficulty focusing during the day and rarely had the energy to stick with an exercise routine. Jeanette never questioned why she felt this way, chalking it up to her myriad responsibilities. “Women are just used to being tired. W... »

The Brick

The Brick

If you were a tourist wandering around Bethlehem, your first thought might be that we’re really obsessed with stars. Your second thought, though, might be that there are a lot of Italian eateries and pizza parlors here. From big names at The Sands and mom-and-pop spots in the townships to downtown mainstays and corner carry-outs, there is no shortage of them. Is there room... »
