"Queen City's origins as an Allentown nickname are obscure. It is believed to come from a turn-of-the-century competition hosted by the Allentown Chamber of Commerce. The winning entry was said to be Queen City."(中译:“皇后城”作为阿伦敦绰号的起源相对模糊,普遍认为出自于本世纪初由阿伦敦商会主办的比赛。)

  4. ^ Whelan, Frank. Hamilton Street used to be thick with peanut shells ** And Allentown's Army Camp Crane once had a popular commander.. The Morning Call. March 13, 2002: B.04. . "Allentown's title as the Peanut City goes back to the late 19th and early 20th century when large amounts of them were eaten in the Lehigh Valley. From the 1880s to the 1920s, vendors lined Hamilton Street, singing jingles in Pennsylvania Dutch about the superior quality of their peanuts. Former Call-Chronicle Sunday editor John Y. Kohl recalled in 1967 that the peanuts were eaten mostly by young men and boys who would walk Hamilton Street on Saturday nights flirting with girls and 'throwing the shells about with complete abandon.' Sunday morning sidewalks were 'not quite ankle deep' in shells. Merchants would get up early to sweep them into the gutter so churchgoers would not have to wade through them.'"(中译:“花生城”这称呼可以追溯至19世纪末、20世纪初,因为当时利哈伊谷人们消耗大量花生。1880年至1910年间,商贩在咸美顿街以宾夕法尼亚德语唱出赞美他们花生品质卓越的歌谣。《Call-Chronicle》前周日编辑约翰·Y·科尔在1969年忆述,年轻男子喜爱于周六夜晚在咸美顿街一边吃花生一边与女子调情,花生壳遍地皆是,至周日早上路边的花生壳差不多满至脚踝位置。商贩一早起来便会忙于打扫,免得到教堂礼拜的人们需要涉花生壳而过。)

"Silk City for example, is a throwback to the late 19th and early 20th century, when Allentown was known for its many silk mills. Although the last mill closed a few years ago, the name hangs on in the minds of older residents."(中译:“丝绸城”的称呼可以追溯至19世纪末、20世纪初,当时阿伦敦有多间丝绸纺织厂。虽然这些厂房已经关闭多年,但是依然在老居民的心目中占有重要的位置。)
