Fishtown Architecture Walking Tour

August 13, 2016 @

Situated to the northeast of Center City, Fishtown figured prominently in Philadelphia’s great industrial age of the late 19th/early 20th century when it was developed to house many of the workers who were employed by the major industries that built factories in this part of the city. Discover how Fishtown’s residences are going through restoration as it becomes a sought after location in which to live. Meet at the statue of William Penn in Penn Treaty Park (N. Delaware and Columbia Avenues).
