South St & 16th St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USAThis truck has been idling on the 1500 block of South Street for 25 minutes. The driver is inside the vehicle, no other PWD employees are present, and no work is being performed. He probably has the heat on since it's 29F outside and he has the window open, for some reason.· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged

The Royal Theatre at 1524-34 South St has no windows and all its doors are boarded up with plywood. It has been this way for approximately 10 (ten) years.
There are also a couple of expired work permits posted.
This building is a blight and eyesore on an otherwise thriving corridor of South Street West.
If we can't force Universal to do anything with their empty lots, maybe we can force their hand on the Royal.
1524-1536 South St Philadelphia, PAThe fence on the right side of the Royal has been tagged again.

White sedan, plate number MG-2909E has been idling in front of the Royal Theater for at least an hour -- since I got to work at 9AM this morning.
Looks like the dude in the car is just fiddling on his mobile.

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.

1524 1536 South St Philadelphia, PAUniversal Companies purchased the abandoned building at a cut rate from the city in 2000, and the property and adjacent lots remain in severe disrepair a full decade later. Universal Companies promised to restore the building, yet has not even kept in controlled ruin. Full-grown trees sprout from the roof, graffiti covers the facade, and I shudder to imagine the interior. The city should condemn the property and sell it at auction.
