Old and new. Traditional and trendy. Residential, yet energetic and alive with some of the city’s most vibrant artistic, culinary, and musical influence. Philly had been well warned about the rise of Fishtown, and now it is considered one of Forbes’ ‘Hottest New Neighborhoods’.
 

Fishtown

Fishtown, situated just northeast of Center City, is one of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. Originally occupied by the Lenape Tribe, the area transformed during the 18th century when working-class immigrants began to take over and shape a thriving industrial epicenter. Namely, in fishing.
 
At one point in time, fish waded through the Delaware River. Many fish, actually. Consequently, it was only natural for this perfectly positioned neighborhood to take advantage of their location, and thus, a community was built around the industry. Ironically, the further Philadelphia industrialized, the further away the fish swam until they both ran dry. For the periods to follow, the neighborhood stayed connected and primarily working class. 
 
Over the past decade, a new sort of change has taken hold. An influx of artists, restaurateurs, breweries, and millennial residents have flooded of this corner of Philadelphia and transformed it into one of the city’s major cultural hotspots.
