In Local Design News: This Instagram video makes Fishtown look like the south of France. Where, on the downside, there are majestic thunderstorms and, on the bright side, there are, like, tons of spots to spend your money.  The video does acknowledge that Fishtown has “ugly parts,” but talking about those “ugly parts” makes me feel icky, and I don’t talk about icky stuffs. Plus all the street art makes the neighborhood seem alive! Extra credit if you can watch the whole thing without dipping into a coma.
