Stopped in this center near the Steel Stax for the first time to exchange some gift items purchased at the Steel Stax Gift Shop. The hostess/cashier was extremely helpful. Nice selection of Bethlehem Steel items for sale--clothing, books, ornaments, etc. Was very pleased to see the historical displays and watch the videos re Bethlehem Steel's rise and fall as well...

I was walking the main street in Bethlehem and stopped in to use the restroom. It's a really cute place, lots of cute souvenirs. The girls working were really nice too.
