A very deep – at least 5 feet – sinkhole has formed at the intersection of Grays Ferry Ave. and Christian St. on Gray's Ferry. It has also undermined the area surrounding it and the pavement looks like it will collapse inward any minute. There is a large crack going from the sinkhole to a PECO manhole cover. The base of the stoplight also looks like it could be compromised. A pedestrian could easily step into this and be up to their neck.

There are heaps of trash constantly on 16th bw South and Bainbridge. How can we have residents clean out front their properties??

As fast as you can say " live stop" police officers are parking their private vehicles in the 13th street bike lane between Juniper and Arch.
1501 Montrose Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
1501 Montrose Street is a nuissance property. It is a mixed use apt/commercial. The bottom floor used to be a laundromat. The area behind the property (on 15th) is a constant source of sanitation violations: garbage bags, old furniture, wood, etc.
In addition, someone has placed a brown rubbermaid trash can on the sidewalk (on 15th btw Montrose & Christian). This attracts all manner of food waste, old clothes, etc. At this moment, it is overflowing. People see the trash and simply add more to it. Last week there was a filthy mattress dropped off. Yesterday, a discarded car seat.
The neighbors try to keep the surrounding area clean. There is even a thriving community garden next to all of this garbage.
It is an eyesore and a health hazard. Neighbors have seen rodents at this location.
We have called 311 numerous times and the trash can has been emptied once or twice. But this property is a serious violator of sanitation laws and the culprits are making the area miserable for all others.
1155 N Front St Philadelphia, PA - Northern Liberties
This intersection is a popular SEPTA stop (Routes 5, 15, and the El). There's garbage everywhere, overflowing trash cans, newspapers, McDonalds wrappers... you name it. It's been like this for YEARS!!!
15th & Spruce Street Philadelphia, PA - City Center West
Poorly placed steel plates over utility excavation causes a bike wheel trap in the Spruce Street bike lane at 15th Street. Can the plates 1) be placed tight against one another 2) secured so that they are not moved out of place by turning cars and trucks
2700-2798 Bainbridge St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
Multiple times a day cars, often traveling at high rates of speed, have near misses with pedestrians crossing Bainbridge St because there is no stop sign for cars traveling north on Schuylkill Avenue and visibility is limited especially when large vehicles are parked in the spaces closest to the intersection. Please install a stop sign here before someone gets seriously injured or killed. Thank you.
132 Chestnut St Philadelphia, PA 19106, USA - Old City
This restaurant has tables and planters outside that take up most of the sidewalk. They also have crowds of people and piles of garbage regularly. People have to walk out into traffic to walk past them.
622 Bainbridge Sreet Philadelphia, PA - Bella Vista
A house (624-28 Bainbridge) that already has 4 interior parking spaces built an addition (622 Bainbridge) and added a fifth. The Streets Department granted a curb cut, but #622 was never re-zoned to authorize the changed use. The owner has pursued his curb cut despite clearly articulated neighborhood opposition and the reality of the need for public parking so close to South Street. It is a case of public good versus private entitlement. When the property owner tried to get the curb cut in 2009, it was stopped and neighbors unanimously petitioned Councilman DiCicco to have a public hearing. That never happened, nor has there been a zoning hearing or notice. We have petitioned again, this time with more anger on our block than even before.

Kink, a fetish boutique, plans to open in a mainly residential building. Per the L&I website, no more than 20% of their space may be used for adult-oriented material. 100% of their material is adult-oriented, as is their advertising and stated business purpose. Homeowners in this building have small children and this business used misleading information to obtain their use permits. www.kinkshoppe.com
