Philadelphia - Fishtown & Northern Liberties video tour

Hi everyone!

Here is another video tour of Fishtown, and this time I visited Northern Liberties too! You will get to see Girard Ave, the I-95 Construction, star wars graffiti, Sugarhouse, Penn Treaty Park, the Piazza, Liberties Walk, statues, Frankford Ave, Frankford Hall, and a whole bunch of construction projects and rowhomes on tree-lined streets. I hope you enjoy! I set the video to 'Philadelphia Freedom' by Elton John. I thought it was a good fit for the vibe of the video

Fishtown is in the middle of a construction boom. It isnt as big&bold as University City, but people are making major investments into the neighborhood. I've lived here since 2007 and i've seen it change dramatically.

Also, i just sub'd to your YouTube channel

To be honest , aside from University City , The Waterfront and Center City , Philadelphia doesn't need large scale projects. What it needs is a massive infill and renovation tsunami to go block by block in places like North Philly , Kensington , Holmesburg JCT , Bridesburg , Allegany. Its a very slow process , but it looks like in Fishtown its final starting to accelerate. I noticed quite abit of revitalization in Fairmount. Hopefully in 10 years you'll be able to walk from one end of the 15 to the other and see nothing but Urban renewal and investments.... I think Philly needs to encourage TOD near busy SEPTA JCTs...there seems to be a lack of that.
