Taking It On the Road

Because of traffic, I decided to take the long way round to suburban NJ. Interstate 78 goes past Bethlehem, PA. We had stopped in Bethlehem on a vacation trip, actually looking for coffee after a night’s camping in the Lehigh Valley.

The city is spit down the middle by the river. On the south side are the old steel mills, where there’s an interesting mix of hilly old, small housing and the old steel mils. There seems to be condo development along the river in some of the old industrial sites.

On the other side of the river is the upscale, historic side of the city. This image is from that side of town.
