Notified About

  • 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!!

  • 738 S Chadwick St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest

    There is a sidewalk/curbside parking issue on the 738-769 block of Chadwick street. Emergency and delivery vehicles cannot access the street and visually impaired pedestrians cannot walk on the sidewalk of the street, all because folks are parking their cars halfway on the sidewalk and street. I almost hit a family of 5 with my car that was walking in the middle of the street because there was no room for them to safely walk on the sidewalk. Citations need to be given to those who illegally park. Phila Parking Auth explains that, in any situation, it is illegal to park on a sidewalk. Most of those who park don’t reside on the block at all!

  • 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!

  • Horrible stench Acknowledged
    739 Earp St Philadelphia, PA 19147 - Passyunk Square

    There is an horrible stench coming from this house that is so bad the neighbors a half block in any direction can no longer open their windows. And there's a rat problem now, too. What is the smell? Who knows? Cats/dogs/death?

  • 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.

  • Latona St Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    Cheesesteak wrappers, soda cups and cheesefry sleeves are strewn through the entirety of South Philadelphia, emblazoned with logos that make it easy to point a finger at the two biggest culprits. Pat's and Geno's need to provide more waste receptacles and should donate resources to aid in the trash clean-up that's organized by the Passyunk Square Civic Association.

  • 3:00AM Trash Pickup Acknowledged
    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.

  • 311 N 12th St Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA - Callowhill

    This unsealed building continues to attract squatters and vandals. The PPD respond to a number of neighborhood 911 calls but can't seem to get the job done. These squatters fight among themselves, throw material out of the building and have started fires. The building's owner has taken no responsibilty.

  • 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.

    http://philly.mybikelane.com

    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:
