SAVE PHILLY / U.S.A. FROM TRI-STATE
AREA CORRUPTION SINKHOLE!!!
3201-3249 Ryan Ave Philadelphia, PA - Mayfair
There is a 2.5 mile stretch called the "loop" were their aren't any trash cans. I've contacted Boyle and Henon's office months ago and haven't been promised anything yet. We have the trash cans, just need someone in the "Streets Dept" to tell them to collect it.
924 S 20th St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
This new store getting ready to open on the NW corner of 20th & Carpenter Streets is a disgrace. First, they breached the party wall through the back into the neighboring property. Next, they installed an air conditioner unit right out on the sidewalk (Carpenter St side). And today they have installed very ugly & DEFINITELY ILLEGAL awnings. They have no permission, variances or anything else that would be required to allow them to do these things. Neighbors unite against this blight!!
2200 Saint Albans Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
This issue has been reported to the police on multiple occasions to no avail. The building on the eastern end of the 2200 block of Saint Albans is falling apart, with broken and boarded-up windows. Yet it still houses a suspicious-looking "Checks Cashed" store and several unsavory characters, while serving as the location for the ongoing, blatant and shameless sale of both drugs and sexual favors. This is unsightly, a fire hazard, and a drive-by waiting to happen, despite the police's nonchalance. Please help us stop this!

612 Washington Ave Philadelphia, PA - Queen Village
The yard behind Saigon Maxim, a restaurant located at 612 Washington Avenue, is abused as an open-air trash pit. The refuse from the restaurant is left to putrify on the ground in half-open garbage bags, carelessly tossed on the ground or into the open bed of a beat up trash truck. The residents of the 600 block of Federal St are most affected as their windows face the yard and the rodents come and go via the gate on Federal St.
1629 Catharine St. Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
A private waste management company empties the dumpsters at this property every night between midnight and 5:00AM. While the process only lasts 5-10 minutes, it is incredibly noisy and disruptive to sleeping neighbors.
2030 East York St Philadelphia, PA - Kensington
This issue was previously reported and the inspector came out but did not enter the residence.
Raw sewage is being pumped from the basement out on the street. Chunks of toilet paper can be see floating along the curb and the smell is horrible. This has been going on for months and reported several times. The gutter is now covered in a sheet of sewage ice. The residents typically pump it out in the evenings but often leave the hose on the sidewalk.
The inspector needs to gain entry and not just take the word of the resident.
2044 Spruce St Philadelphia, PA 19103 - Rittenhouse Square
The bike lanes on Spruce st. are barely a month old, and already they are being plagued by illegal parking, stopping, idling.
does a good job documenting parking + idling with eyes on the street, addresses, and photos
What can we do to get parking enforced? Are the neighborhoods on board?
Here are a few complaints about Spruce:

652-698 Roxborough Ave Philadelphia, PA 19128, USA - Roxborough
There is no storm water/sewer inlet to catch the water that flows down Roxborough Ave. and onto the golf course and adjacent park. During storms large amounts of sediment are deposited on the golf cart path and severe erosion is occurring in the park. The water is flowing along the north side of Roxborough Ave. from Henry Ave towards Magdalena St. The inlet would need to be located on the north side of Roxborough Ave where it intersects with Magdalena St.
642 W Johnson St Philadelphia, PA - Mount Airy
Abandoned house on otherwise well cared for street. Brush and weeds up to five feet high. Obstructed sidewalk.
Was able to successfully create a 311 report yesterday although that process takes 90 days. We have already been dealing with this for a year. Report number is 1726776.
Weeds are tall enough to conceal a person and obstruct the public walkway at the front of the property.
Property tax search (public) at phila.gov shows the owner to be Todd M Mosser. Property taxes are three years in arrears with two liens filed.
This property is clearly abandoned.
Simple web search shows owner's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/people/Todd-M-Mosser/738143960. Picture confirms that this is the person who used to live there.
Perhaps a letter or email to the owner asking him to address his responsibility?
1524 South St Philadelphia, PA - City Center West
I have reported this previously ( http://seeclickfix.com/issues/108919 ), but the Royal has fallen further into disrepair over the past few months. The building is not open to the public, but there are now significant cracks on the outside walls of the building.

1700 Morris St Philadelphia, PA 19145, USA - Newbold neighborhood
Di Silvestro Playground located at 1500 Morris Street in the Newbold part of Philadelphia has created chaos for the residences who live directly around the playground. Young males ranging from the ages of 10 to 20 have begun to sit on parked vehicles and on the steps of residences after playing basketball. In groups of 6 and more they practice fight each other and lean their bikes on the vehicles nearby. Many of them check to see if the doors of the cars are locked when loitering in front of private homes. Along with the damage left from the bikes, they sit on hoods and in empty pickup truck beds. You can clearly see a string of cars that have sneaker marks and indented hoods from the group of males. They are normally present from the hours of 3pm to 8pm.
Another issue is the fact that they also climb on top of the roof of the community center currently under construction and the equipment containers. Since there is no mediator or authority at a playground filled of teenagers after school it becomes chaotic inside and immediately around the playground.
They often film themselves fighting each other and their activities to glorify the gang like culture. As an example seen in a video on YouTube called “SOUTH PHILLY 15th STREET goonz ( K.WALKER )” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DETfL6ZAqdM
Many immigrants on the westside 1700 block of 15th street have no voice as they accept that a large group of thugs sit in front of their homes without confrontation in fear of retaliation. They become trapped until these young males leave or continue to another step after leaving all their litter behind. I myself have asked them to politely move off my step and have been cursed at when doing so. Calling the police is useless as they just move when they yell 5O. There is no reasoning with these males, they lack tact and respect.
None of these males live immediately around the playground so they have no respect for the area around it. Often they are playing basketball bouncing the ball way past midnight on nice nights in an unlit court as residence try to sleep for work the next day. There used to be a fence which closed the basketball court off afterhours but since the community center is under construction the caretaker of the playground is no longer around. As this is just the beginning of the summer the playground is subjected to FLASHMOB like conditions after school with no presents of authority.
"We run south philly" qouted in the video.
