    Ok, I guess I have had you hanging on my every word long enough:
    The answer, drum roll,, ,, ,, ,, is:
    Its the name of the numbered streets as you go east on route
    22 from 15th street, 7th street, 378, 512 and then: 191
    Heck, anyone from Allentown Pa could have told you that

    Haha good one. I lived in PA for 4 years, but my Allentown knowledge is very limited, having only been there once.
