The house is located on a quiet street with friendly (but not intrusive) neighbors in Fishtown. Fishtown (adjacent to Northern Liberties and Kensington neighborhoods) is full of delightful surprises for those who love restaurants, cafes, parks, hipster boutiques, and more. Local RESTAURANTS are fantastic: Walking distance to Milk Crate cafe (featuring La Colombe coffee and Metropolitan bakery pastries and more), Kraftwork (amazing beer selection and excellent menu), Lloyd (featuring whiskies and innovative cuisine), Stock (Vietnamese pho), Girard (new French bistro), and the line-up on Frankford Avenue with Fete Sau & Frankford Hall (both Steven Starr restaurants), Kensington Quarters, The Bottle Shop, La Colombe and more. Along the Delaware near the Sugar House Casino you will find new venues such as La Travinia, the music venue The Fillmore, and an old favorite of ours Yards Brewery where you can drink great local beer, eat delicious pub food, and take a tour of the brewery itself. YOGA: Five-minute walk to four (4!) yoga studios including Amrita Yoga and Mother Heart Yoga, and Threshold Wellness (for massage, acupuncture, yoga and more). Further into the neighborhood is Pacific Yoga. 3 block walk to dog-friendly Penn Treaty park with a kids playground area and huge open field right on the Delaware River. Further down Delaware Avenue is Sugar House Casino, for those who like to gamble
