To know Fishtown real estate is to love Fishtown real estate. Fishtown, in my opinion, is one of the most wonderful urban neighborhoods in Philadelphia. It offers a warm people centric neighborhood setting. It appeals to many home purchasers since Fishtown offers a wide range of home prices. It is a destination for visitors and it is located within eye-shot of Center City Philadelphia. So, if you do not know the area, whether you are buying a home, looking for a new hang-out, or just exploring the world outside Center City, it is time to check out what's happening in the world of Fishtown real estate.
Here are a few cool hang-outs...
The 19125 zipcode (aka Fishtown/New Kensington) is located on the "fringe" of Center City Philadelphia. The "fringe" neighborhoods are a subject within themselves. The neighborhoods that adorn, if you will, Center City Philadelphia, have been undergoing a renaissance over the last several years. In Fishtown, the local businesses and the people who live and invest there are genuinely interested in the healthy growth of their community. The success of so many local businesses, such as a few of the businesses in the photos in this blog post, are a testament to that. Love your neighbor and love your neighborhood defines Fishtown.
