“Center City” is what Philadelphians call their downtown - the historic city core that dates to its 1682 founding. With the third-highest residential population of any U.S. central business district, Center city is not a neighborhood but a collection of neighborhoods that range from tony Rittenhouse Square and Society Hill to immigrant gateway Chinatown, with just about everything in between. What do you want? Great shopping? Enticing dining options? Arts and culture? High-rise luxury?
The name "Fishtown" is derived form the area's former role as the center of the shad fishing industry on the Delaware River. Today people of all kinds call this neighborhood home. Known as an emerging center of the arts, entertainment, and dining and hipster vibe.
