there used to be an alg crashpad there but not any more. its a small base and everyone there lives in the area. You may find a cheep apt. around one of the schools like Lehigh, Cedar Brest, Muhlenberg, or Moravian or PSU allentown. Watch south bethlehem unless your less than 3 blocks from campus. When I went to school there I was robbed twice in 2 years.
