Commemorative bricks can be reclaimed in Allentown

Commemorative bricks available for donors

ALLENTOWN, Pa. - A blast from the past is waiting for hundreds of people in Allentown.

Commemorative bricks that were purchased in the late 1980s and early 1990s as part of the Center Square renovation project have been removed from the corner of Seventh & Hamilton streets for the construction of the new PPL Center.

Now, those bricks can be reclaimed by the donors who purchased them years ago.

The bricks can be picked up at 905 Harrison Street on Saturday, August 9th from 8-11 a.m. and on Tuesday, August 12th from 5-8 p.m.

To reclaim a brick, drivers are asked to enter Harrison Street from South 10th Street. Just drive up and tell the volunteer the name on your brick. You'll be asked to show picture identification and sign a release form before your brick is returned.

An alphabetized list of the names on the retrieved bricks is published on the city web site.

If you can't pick up your brick, you can arrange to have someone else pick it up for you.

If that's not possible, send an email to jean.brossman@allentownpa.gov by August 22nd, and the brick will be held for you.

Unclaimed bricks will be disposed of at a later date.
