2300 ParrishWhile riding my bicycle in a light rain, I found I was being tailgated by a driver in what looked like a red, early 90's Toyota Corrolla. The started to blast his horn and yelled at me to 'Get out of the way'!. This harassment continued for two blocks before I had enough and pulled over, whereupon the driver made a left turn onto a side street.

The closed 15th street discount cleaners corner has been used has a drug and beet hangout where they get beer directly across the street. Black males and females will sit on this corner for hours while drinking beer and watch the nice people walk by. There should be no reason why they are on vacant private property.
You can buy anything here, sex, drugs and stolen plants!
1324 Locust St. Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaThis 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!

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!
6733 Emlen StreetPHA trash truck sits in the parking lot, right outside my window and idles with the PTO on (so its much higher, louder and stinkier) for 20-30 mins every sunday afternoon when they come and pick up the trash.
5100 Willows Ave Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaTrash & trees are being dumped behind my property and in the abutting vacant lots - mostly tires, pieces of cars, cinder blocks, old doors and furniture, and brush, but some rotting meat- type garbage, too. The property is infested with mosquitoes. The more I try to clean up, the more re-appears overnight. (A friend did remove the old couch.)

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, PennsylvaniaSomeone 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?

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....
