We are two artists that share this unique space. The building used to be part of a hatbox factory. Half of the building is a living area with a lot of open, and warm space; rest is a bookstore (open on weekends.) We are also in the heart of Fishtown, 5 min walk from the Berks train station, and less than 10 min walk to Girard Ave (+train station) in less than a min walk you will be at Frankford Ave, for cafes, restaurants, shops and boutiques. There are also restaurants and bars on Front st.

We both teach at Temple University during the academic year. I will be out of country for a month and would like to rent out my room to an academic.

Guest access:
You are welcome to use the backyard, living area, dining area and the kitchen reasonably. There is a big dining table that you can use as a laptop working space if necessary.

Other things to note:
Please keep in mind we are in the city, near the train and there has been increased traffic during the weekends due to the popularity of the neighborhood.
