Philadelphia's unofficial videographer Cory J Popp chose to continue his "Uncover Philly" series by exploring what he calls "Philadelphia's most interesting neighborhood:" Fishtown.
While he acknowledges the generational divide of the neighborhood, Popp makes sure to showcase only the positive aspects of the area. "The neighborhood has a huge amount of new, 20-to-30-year-old residents," Popp begins, "but the rest of the neighborhood seems to be made up of people who have lived there their entire lives."
The graffiti that covers Fishtown's walls, Popp says, is ever changing and makes the neighborhood feel alive. Fishtown's biggest draws, though, are the area's restaurants and bars. Popp filmed at neighborhood favorites like La Colombe, Barcade and Little Baby's Ice Cream. He also covered some of the shopping scene at spots like Jinxed and Philadelphia Record Exchange.
In addition to the video series, Popp is now selling prints of photographs taken during filming.
