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.

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
