1324 Locust St. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - City Center East
This happens with every event they hold here. Inadequate soundproofing (actually, I'm guessing none) combined with an over-amped emcee and music levels more appropriate for the Trocadero create noise violations far beyond anything reasonable. I could stand directly outside Woody's or Voyeur (or the Troc, for that matter, and not be exposed to the decibel levels I am from this place when I'm across the street 10 floors up with my windows closed. I can hear it throbbing over my own TV! Will the police do anything? Well, this happens every week and they haven't yet. Noise violations, illegally parked vehicles blocking emergency access to other buildings, rude and threatening employees... What a fine neighbor Stephen Starr businesses make!

Another Saturday night, another night that Stephen Starr catering is entirely blocking Juniper St. with illegally parked vehicles. Right now there is a white Starr Events truck, a white van, and a metallic beige SUV with a horse trailer hitched to it all parked completely blocking the street. IF THERE WAS AN EMERGENCY, RESCUE VEHICLES COULD NOT REACH OUR BUILDING! I called the police at 6:00 PM then again at 8:00 PM, and still nobody has showed up to ticket/tow them.
This is a recurring problem. Starr Events continually blocks all street access to our building. Ambulances and fire trucks could not reach us. Residents cannot get to our building with their vehicles to move in or out, Taxis cannot drop people off at the door late at night for their safety.
If anybody dares to complain to them directly the Starr employees either completely ignore them, are frequently rude and yell at them, and I have even heard them threaten people with physical violence.
And on top of all that there is no soundproofing of the venue, so every time they have an event music and their obnoxious announce/DJ can be heard even across the street on the tenth floor with the windows closed.
This has to stop!
Kelly Dr Philadelphia, PA 19130, USA - Strawberry Mansion
What the @#$%!?
I just spend an hour on Kelly drive, on a Friday evening between 7 and 8 PM. Turns out lanes are closed at Logan Square (and West River Drive).
I want to know what fucktard is signing off on such an organization of whatever event. I suggest to save some precious city budget on that salary.
Speaking of the budget, don't have the cops better things to do as well?
Then, there's the environment. How many diesel trucks can you idle for how long to match the waste during those hours of cars all along Kelly Drive (and 76 as well) sitting there unnecessarily?
What's the time worth that drivers waste there?
I had a long day - week - and the last thing I need is this crap.
Today and yesterday it apparently was some run, but of course there are the boat races and whatever else. None of this can have any business blocking @#$% rush-hour traffic.
If those events can't be sceduled between 10 AM and 3 PM, Philadelphia just can't afford them.
Stop. This. Now.

Juniper And Cypress Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - City Center East
Someone has been dumping VERY LARGE rocks (head-sized and larger) into tree pits up and down Juniper, down Cypress, on Pine (just west of Juniper) and on Lombard (just east of Juniper). They're too large for one person to clean up...can the city remove them?

Cars routinely drive in them, taxis routinely pull into them well ahead of a right turn, dangerously cutting you off, delivery vans and people unloading routinely stop in them, and cars park in them en masse on the weekends. All you have to do is look at the per capita murder rate of a city to see how well managed and livable it is....

While the reason for the traffic tie-ups are individually tragic, they are a collective nuisance, particularly during rush hour.
Now, I notice these events are also wasting additional City assets - supposedly in short supply - because this morning a COP shielded the left lane for the cars of attendants for a service.
This needs to stop. If the home can't manage their events to at least avoid peak traffic hours (weekends, too) they should not be allowed to operate there.
The city needs to stop wasting police time with this.
