This building has a history of putting their trash out early, I've been told 40 years, I've seen it for 15 over years. The residents have a history of putting their trash out in paper bags, not in the prescribed manor, in a haphazard way, and in an illegal manner. The entrance to the building faces the 2200 Block of Pemberton Street which is a PMBC Clean Block and has been so since August of 2008. We clean the street on a regular basis. Neighbors have asked nicely that they comply without result. Neighbors have called 311 on numerous occasions to no avail. Trash collection was missed Monday and they continue to add to the trash pile. We are waiting for enforcement.· Reported by Richard T.

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
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.
622 Bainbridge Sreet Philadelphia, PA
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.
1155 N Front St Philadelphia, PA
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!!!
2700-2798 Bainbridge St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA
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.
15th & Spruce Street Philadelphia, PA
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
132 Chestnut St Philadelphia, PA 19106, USA
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.
