New York Times Discovers Fishtown

Ugh, time to find a new hip neighborhood.

The New York Times, master of the untrendy trend piece you know you’ll read anyways, has discovered Fishtown. (For the fourth time.) Or at least a small stretch of Frankford Ave. By avoiding mainstays like Johnny Brenda’s and that brofest beer garden, you have to give the Times props. By omitting Kung Fu Necktie, you have to take all those props away.

On the list:

  • Bottle Bar East (booze)
  • Steap and Grind (coffee)
  • Adorn (jewlery)
  • The Parlour (hair)
  • 20th Century by HKFA (???)

Solid B-, New York TimesB-.
