Fishtown Gets The NYT Treatment

Fishtown Baby!
The New York Times does an article in their travel section on Fishtown. Yes, our Fishtown.

These days artists easily outnumber fishermen and heroin addicts. Thanks to a recovering waterfront and spillover from gentrifying neighborhoods like Northern Liberties, Fishtown is joining the ranks of warehouse districts nationwide that have undergone a renaissance. Young professionals and creative types are moving into renovated apartments and luxury condos. Upscale restaurants, galleries and high-end shops have followed.

Among the restaurants and bars mentioned:

  • Johnny Brenda’s
  • Ida Mae’s Bruncherie
  • Hot Potato Cafe
  • Johnny’s Hots

Thankfully they did include a mention of Rocky.
