  • 725 Walnut St Philadelphia, PA - Society Hill

    For the past year, a homeless couple has been sleeping on the steps of Chops Restaurant, and using these steps to intravenously shoot drugs as well; I live at 725 Walnut Street, and to be honest, this block is turning into Skid Row, because there are 5 other homeless people who sleep on other steps on this block.....what can be done to help and protect me and my family, who pay rent here and shop at all nearby businesses.

    Spruce street east of Broad is in unbelievably poor condition for about 5 blocks. The patches have patches, and it's like a third world country.

    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....

  • 1222 Locust Philadelphia, PA - City Center East

    This property is in violation of the Doors and Windows Ordinance, a recently enacted law that requires all structures on blocks that are at least 80% occupied to have actual doors and windows where they’re supposed to. Plywood is not sufficient....Also uncovered windows throughout.

  • 1315 Spruce Street (Rear Of Building) Philadelphia, PA - City Center East

    For years I have tolerated the garbage dump that is the backyard of William Way center. It has gotten so out of hand that I am now seeking assistance from any source. Food garbage sits outside for days and sometimes weeks. Old office equipment has been rotting out there for a month. I do not appreciate having a "community center" treat the community this way. My front door face this dump. What can be done? This photo shows current conditions.
