About Reading

Reading is the county seat of Berks County, Pennsylvania and the center of the Greater Reading Area. In the 2000 census, the city had a population of 81,207, making it the fifth largest city in Pennsylvania after Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Allentown, and Erie, and the sixth largest municipality after Upper Darby Township.

View from Pagoda atop Mt. Penn

Overview

Overlooking the city on Mount Penn is Reading's symbol, a Japanese style pagoda visible from everywhere in town and referred to familiarly as "the Pagoda." It was built in 1908 as a hotel but was never used for that purpose. It remains a tourist attraction.

Duryea Drive, which ascends Mount Penn in a series of sharp bends, was a testing place for early automobiles and was named for Charles Duryea.

The city lent its name to the now-defunct Reading Railroad, which brought anthracite coal from the Pennsylvania Coal Regions. The railroad is one of the four railroad properties in the classic English-language version of the Monopoly board game.

Reading was one of the first localities where outlet shopping became a tourist industry. It has been known as "The Pretzel Capital" because of the numerous local pretzel bakeries including Bachman's pretzels.

Reading has a Double-A Eastern League baseball team, the Reading Phillies; an East Coast Hockey League ice hockey team, the Reading Royals; an USL Premier Development League soccer team, the Reading Rage; Reading Rugby Football Club and an American Indoor Football League team, the Reading Express. The Phillies play in the city's 9,000-seat FirstEnergy Stadium, while the Royals and Express play in the 7,000-seat Sovereign Center. Among the athletes native to the Reading area are Brooklyn Dodger outfielder Carl Furillo, "the Reading Rifle," Baltimore Colts running back Lenny Moore, and current Cleveland Cavaliers forward Donyell Marshall. The book and movie "Rabbit Run" took place in Reading. It was written by John Updike who was born in nearby Shillington. He fictionalized the name of Reading to "Mount Judge"

Five institutions of higher education are located in Reading: Albright College, Alvernia College, Berks Technical Institute, Pace Institute, and Reading Area Community College. The city's cultural institutions include a symphony orchestra and museum, GoggleWorks art gallery. Poet Wallace Stevens was born in Reading on October 2, 1879, and John Philip Sousa, the March King, died there March 6, 1932.

The current mayor, Tom McMahon, was elected in November, 2003. He will be up for re-election in November, 2007.

Since the November, 2006 relocation of St. Joseph's Medical Center, Reading no longer has any hospitals within its city limits. There are, however, two hospital satellites in downtown Reading: The Reading Hospital Health Dispensary on Penn Street, and St. Joseph's Medical Center Community Campus on 6th Street.
