Fishtown Real Estate - Urban Homes in the Philly Fringe

Mural on Frankford Ave Fishtown

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...

Memphis Taproom         Bike Stable

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.

If you are considering buying a property, there is a home for almost everyone in Fishtown ! There is no such thing as cookie-cutter homes in this neighborhood. Today, a typical Fishtown home is anything but typical. There are properties to meet the style and taste of almost everyone. If you like ultra modern homes, Fishtown has them. If you are more of a romantic and want a restored Victorian, it is right here in Fishtown.  More of an industrial condo/loft conversion type of person? No problem. Fishtown real estate has it !! Investors looking for lots and shells, 1 bedrooms, 2 bedrooms, cash flow rentals, multi-family, new construction, fixer-uppers, gated communities... it can be found in Fishtown !!!

Patricia - Yes !!!  We love the fish mural as well !  Also, many folks will have a Fish type sign attached to their house with their address.  Very cool.

Liana - Thanks !!! We are proud of the shots.  Stephanie takes some very good photos so the professional photographers need to step up their game a little bit : ) .  Seriously though, it is great to be able to do a blog post which can capture the essence of such a unique neighborhood like Fishtown !  ~ Chris
