With a population of more than 72,000 the city of Bethlehem, with its neighbouring towns of Allentown and Easton, comprises the state’s third-largest metropolitan area, which makes it one where efficient and speedy parcel delivery is considered an essential service.
Bethlehem was listed by Money magazine in its top 100 best places to live poll of 2006, when it was ranked 88th, and according to the census of 2000, it is Pennsylvania’s fastest-growing city.
It has become known in recent years as the home of the ‘second Las Vegas’, the corporation which owns the gambling capital having been given permission in 2006 to develop the massive former Bethlehem Steel plant as a fully integrated resort.
This site now boasts more than 300 luxury hotel rooms, nine restaurants, and 200,000 square feet of premium-quality shops. And the new Sands Casino Resort is estimated to generate $1million in revenue every day.
Many jobs in the city are also provided by the St Luke’s Hospital and Health Network, which together comprises the second largest health facility in the Lehigh Valley.
Bethlehem is also home to the United States’ sixth oldest college. Moravian College was founded in 1742, and runs undergraduate courses as well as being home to the Moravian Theological Seminary, where students from more than a dozen religious denominations study at any one time.
The city, which was a major cradle of the Industrial Revolution in the USA, is famed as the home of the first ‘I-beam’, a type of steel frame subsequently used in the construction of thousands of skyscrapers which mark many an American skyline.
