What's this all about?
First called Northside 2027, the program coincided with the 2017 designation of the area as a Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance (LERTA) property tax abatement district by the city, Bethlehem Area School District and Northampton County.
The neighborhood stretches from the Monocacy Creek and Mauch Chunk Road on the west to Maple Street on the east and is bounded by Broad Street to the south and Laurel Street to the north. It is home to William Penn and Thomas Jefferson elementary schools along with Liberty High School and Moravian College.
The charming neighborhood contains a wide variety of housing, including single family homes, apartments and row homes, a prime example of the mixed-income neighborhoods that are the backbone of Bethlehem.
Residents love the Monocacy Way Trail and their local parks. Broad and Linden streets comprise the Northside's two major commercial corridors, offering some of Bethlehem’s best dining.
This affordable area is also close to our historic downtown, making it the perfect place to work, live and play in Bethlehem.
