About Fishtown/East Kensington

Some locals claim that Philadelphia’s Fishtown neighborhood received its name from Charles Dickens during a visit. Speculations aside, we’re sure that Fishtown grew as a riverside shipbuilding and fishing community. Centuries later, Fishtown boasts an array of Colonial and Victorian row homes and a
renewed vitality.

Fishtown is home to families, artists, and young professionals looking for more affordable housing close to downtown. Interstate 95 is easily accessible from the neighborhood. SEPTA’s Market Frankford Line  and restored trolley put you in Center City within minutes. With some new nightspots, Philadelphia Brewing Company, music venues, coffee houses, and art studios, Fishtown is becoming a well known, up-and-coming community, bringing more interest and newcomers to the neighborhood.
