Northern Liberties/ Fishtown Real Estate Market Overview

Both bordered to the east by the Delaware River, the adjacent neighborhoods of Northern Liberties (a.k.a. NoLibs) and Fishtown (named for its once-booming shad fishing industry) were home to immigrant workers during the better parts of the 19th and 20th centuries. Nowadays, the neighborhoods serve as a playground for Philly's creative community while retaining their working-class heritage. Once-empty warehouses ...and factories have been converted into artists' studios and bilevel lofts that retain just the right amount of grit to attract the hipster set, while businesses run the gamut from gastropubs and art galleries to cool boutiques and after-hours dance clubs.View more
