1030 N 2nd St Philadelphia, PA 19123, USANorth 2nd street along the Piazza and liberties walk is treated as a race way. It is very dangerous to cross even at the one cross walk. There is only a caution pedestrian sign which drivers ignore. A speed bump is most needed followed by a stop sign
N 3rd St & Callowhill St Philadelphia, PA 19123, USA
When exiting 676 west at 3rd st, the pavement immediately following the exit ramp (which is on 3rd st) is in extremely poor condition.
If you go more than 5 miles per hour you may damage your vehicle!
Come on streets department!
300 E. Girard Philadelphia, PAWhy can't the city open the bags that people leave next to the city trashcan, pull a piece of mail with a name, then fine these bums. I constantly tell anyone I see doing this that the city collects trash from in front of their house on Fridays. Easy enough.· Reported by Marlborough St Resident · Flag Flagged
Vine And 2nd Street Philadelphia, PAThe park / plot of land at the N.E. corner of 2nd and Vine Street has had a vagrant camping out in the bushes, in a makeshift structure on the second tier of landscaping.
He screams all night long, every night.
Fairmount Park owns that property and there is no camping allowed on Fairmount Park Property.· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged

The city installed rumble strips along 2nd Street on Tuesday (10/6). It's clear that these were installed in order to slow vehicles within the vicinity of multiple mid-block pedestrian crossings; however, the rumble strips are cut across the full-width of both lanes, are difficult for cyclists to traverse, and are a tire-wedge hazard.
It seems that the rumble strips could have been just as effective if they were only installed within the center of the road (perhaps extending 5' on each side of the lane line) so that vehicles would still catch the strips with one wheel while allowing cyclists to bypass the rumble strips along the edge of the lane.
It is worth noting that the ped crossing issue at this location is only partially due to high vehicular speeds; the other issue is the poor sight distances at these crossings. Although painted pedestrian bump-outs are present in some locations, the narrow lanes and existing parking lanes greatly limit the sight distance and pose a safety hazard. In addition to addressing the rumble strip issue, perhaps a REAL look should be taken at addressing the pedestrian crossings... like a visible pedestrian signal... something like the newly approved, pedestrian actuated, Rectangular Rapid Flashing Beacons to grab motorists attention. (FYI, the PennDOT approval number is SPD-001X for those beacons.)
