Philadelphia - Fishtown April 2013

Looks like Fishtown to me. No Memphis Taproom?

I can hit that up next time, but isn't that considered Richmond? I think anything east of York is not fishtown proper. I'm sure we could go on and on about that lol

Cool pictures! Thanks for sharing your very nice pictures.

I like the houses in your first photo. You live in a very nice neighbourhood. I like Philadelphia and Fishtown. Those blooming trees in Montgomery Av are very pretty. Great job!

Congrats and greetings from Madrid, Spain!

Fishtown is a rock solid, urban neighborhood. Not one of my Philly faves when it comes to architecture, but definitely a great place to hang out/eat/drink.

It is located on the Delaware River and got its name from the shad fishing industry.

Is it just me or did that photo of the school ground with the spotlights gave some Phillyskyline.com flashbacks?.....what's up B Love?

Cool set. Wish you had more pictures of all the great bars/restaurants in the neighborhood. I really miss Philly and could go for a Sketch burger right about now!

The Center City skyline looks great from Frankford Ave and Palmer.

Now that was one fine Fish Phil-ay!

Now that would be a great thread. "Philadelphia Neighborhood Borders"!

Nice pics. The view of Center City is awesome. A unique view not seen in many pictures.

I have a lot of bar shots - I think you gave me a great compilation idea


also regarding sketch - that place is doing great. I remember when it first opened and they didn't have a deep fryer yet, so they gave you cheese poofs with the burger instead of French fries I still think they serve that as an optional side
