Footnotes ...

<1>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<2>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Allentown. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.
<3>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Allentown refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Allentown may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Allentown - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Allentown) to Point B.

The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.6962, Longitude: -82.8582       In this case, the coordinates for Allentown have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
