Cool is the rule in Fishtown, which has emerged as Philly’s truest harbor of artistic, culinary and musical action. This classic working-class neighborhood, so named due to its history as the epicenter of the commercial shad fishing industry, is a colorful exception to the gridded-out urban rule, a collection of narrow streets beset with modest row homes and independently owned businesses.
A momentous influx of bars, restaurants, music venues, studios and galleries are the result of such hustle, and newcomers’ integration and collaboration with the neighborhood’s long-time residents and families has set Fishtown on a forward-thinking path.
