What is the Fishtown Neighbors Association?
The Fishtown Neighbors Association is a registered 501c3 non-profit organization and the Registered Community Organization (RCO) that serves the needs of the Fishtown/19125 neighborhood of Philadelphia (see FNA boundaries below). Formed in 2001 by a dedicated group of neighborhood volunteers seeking to improve and unify the community, the FNA has continued to serve the community for over a decade.
Who is the FNA?
YOU are the FNA - ALL Fishtown residents and business owners are welcome. Whether you’re new to the neighborhood or a lifelong resident, the FNA is your community group, and is run entirely by unpaid neighborhood volunteers. Membership dues are $5 annually, but are NOT required to participate in meetings & Committees. All FNA meetings are free and open to the public, typically held at the Fishtown Recreation Center.
Where are FNA's boundaries?

(All border streets include odd and even addresses.)
