Thanks! Thanked!950fitzwater St. Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaThe construction workers on S. 10th St. and Fitzwater St. have left debris piled up by trees that are going to kill them. There are not nearly enough street tress and doing construction like this will kill them.· Reported by Steve · Flag Flagged
818 South Mildred Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
A large oval sinkhole appears to be developing at the center of the 800 block of South Mildred Street.
The blacktop is cracked the width of the street, and the area immediately north of the crack has sunken several inches. It now collects large pools of rainwater and debris.
The concrete sidewalks on either side have arc-shaped cracks that seamlessly connect to the crack in the blacktop.· Reported by Yasiejko · Flag Flagged

About a month ago PGW was replacing pipes on the South Side of the 1000 block of Washington Avenue. However, yellow PVC pipes, cones and PGW placards were left on the North Side of Washington (right in front of Sherwin Williams.) after the construction wrapped up. Since then, a taco truck has used the pipes/cones to block off a parking space for themselves 24 hours a day. Worse, they actually block out the two spots in front of "their" spot with PGW cones / placards for ease of parking. Our neighborhood has lost three parking spots and we're left with unsightly construction debris.
Disgruntled neighbors moved the pipes / placards to the sidewalk to free-up parking spots last night.
PGW needs to REMOVE the pipes (now sitting on the sidewalk and blocking pedestrian traffic) and have a word to the taco truck about using PGW property to block off three legal parking spots, designated for residents.· Reported by CR · Flag Flagged
1030 S. 9th Street Philadelphia, PA
The owners of this land (Carl's Poultry, who also operate a low-cost poultry shop across the street) have let this vacant property (in the heart of the Italian Markets) turn into an open dump. There is a graffiti covered dumpster sitting in this lot and it is surrounded by trash piling up. When asked to remove the trash a few years ago, they simply put tarps over it.
Now others are dumping here. The "green" fence is often covered with graffiti, and it's been this way for years.
Efforts from neighbors a few years ago halted a zoning variance to allow yet more construction by property owner. Why? Because the property owner, owns other abandoned/blighted properties on the 800 block of League Street. The fork lifts from his "warehouses" on League are constantly blocking traffic, not to mention the stench from the "cleaning" of kitchen equipment in the street. (But that's an entirely different topic. Health code violations?)

1010 Hall St Philadelphia, PAThese garbage bins used to belong to a restaurant, Carluccio's, which is now closed. I'm not sure if anyone is responsible for them. People use them for dumping garbage and they are now overflowing. I'm not sure if the trash gets pick up each week but they are always jam packed with half a week to go.· Reported by Z · Flag Flagged

S 8th St Philadelphia, PABecause this is a very busy stretch with two bus stops close together as well as two convenience stores, there is a small river of litter that flows down the west-side sidewalk and in the gutters. Many of the residences are apartment buildings, there are a couple of restaurants, and many elderly. No one picks up the litter. It's disgusting.
