Default Slatington

before you move to Slatington, i would get to know your neighbors well.
We bought a house 6 yrs ago in Slatington in which we thought was a quiet part of town down along the river. The nosey neighbors called Protective Srevices on us because we were taking care of an elderly woman...........(pure jelousy). to make a long story short / the elderly woman couldnt take the changes these people wanted and she ended up having a stroke and was unable to swallow and died last October (2006) .......... as far as utility bills... garbage went up from $40.00 to 70 something every 3 months /
How much are you willing to spend on a house / buy ours LOL

good luck if you move here
P.S..... check out your neighbors 1st

I understand that the above tread had problem with a nosey neighbor but why would you not advise living in Slatington? Are all the people crazy or nosey.. ..is there high crime. Would you share more of your dislike for the area.
I have also found affordable housing in Palmerton....do you have thoughts on that town.
Thanks so much for your input.

Sorry to hear about the lose of your friend. Why would someone be so mean as to call Protective services on you. Are ALL the people in Slatington like that? What do you know about Palmerton?
Thanks

I have lived here for 9 months. My husband I and my 3 year old daughter purchased a home here in the $120,000 range. The house is incredible compared to others in the price range, and I am enjoying the area more everyday. If you are an outdoors person like us you have lots to do. We are between Trout Creek and the Lehigh river then the canal is next to the Lehigh. There is a library on Main St., a few antique shops small homey coffee shop. If you like to fish, hike, boat, trail walk, disc golf, it's all right out your back door. As for the people, there are some right out of city life, there are some who've never left the town, most are very friendly. We have known the area for years. My husband grew up close by. The schools are good and the town does alot of cool things, arts day, carnival, founders day, events at the canal, etc. I would be glad to answer any questions you may have honestly, my e-mail is petals416@aol.com.

Slatington is a backwards dump where people think it's still 1986. They listen to Ratt and other bad hair metal. Dont go there!

Too much HUD/Section 8 in Slatington. It's the noisiest small town I've ever been in. People have obsessions with blowing their horns around here. Town is in decline. It was a nice place 5-6 years ago, but is terrible now.

I would personally prefer Palmerton over Slatington. Just a bit nicer town and nicer people there IMO. Both towns have a very high percentage of rentals, and that is never good. There are many "backwards" people; however, I have found the people to be nice and sincere as well. Bad neighbors are unfortunately everywhere, as are those who seem to go out of their way to make trouble for others.

You should make some time to visit both Slatington and Palmerton, both during the day and on a weekend night to see things for yourself. Visit a few of the businesses, have a meal in a local restaurant. Hope that helps!
