Neighborhood Love: Fishtown
There are few things we enjoy more than exploring on a gorgeous summer day, hitting the best shops, restaurants and bars that Philly has to offer. Now we’re not biased – we love this city from corner to corner – but lately, we’ve been so intrigued by the renaissance that’s currently underway in Fishtown that we think you should go and experience it for yourself.
A renewed interest in Fishtown, an old manufacturing town that peaked in the 1900s, sparked key revitalization efforts that have since brought a number of new businesses to the neighborhood.
Ice cream shop Little Baby’s has been dishing out unique flavors from its space next to Pizza Brain since August 2013. Workshop studio Philadelphia Sculpture Gym began offering classes in forging, welding, and the like last summer, at around the same time that ReAnimator Coffee started brewing roasted, drip coffee from their shop at the corner of Susquehanna and Norris Avenues. Throw in Frankford Hall’s outdoor beer garden, live music at Johnny Brenda’s and a bounty of veggies at Greensgrow Farm – Fishtown seems to have it all.
For these and many other reasons, we’re showing Fishtown some #NeighborhoodLove this weekend.

Back then, we started by offering food in the UberEATS app from 1,000 pioneering restaurant partners in four cities. And today, more than 40,000 restaurants globally–from poke shops to pasta spots–are sharing food with customers through UberEATS. With a growing restaurant community comes more choices and more complexity. So we’re cooking up features to continue to make UberEATS easy and reliable. Here is a taste–
