Requests: noise complaint
1100 Washington Avenue Philadelphia, PAThe Red Lounge (2nd floor of mini-mall at 11th and Washington) opened last weekend Nov 25 and there has been excessive noise (loud music with heavy bass) until 2-3am in the morning on both Friday and Saturday nights. I live a block away and can hear the reverberating bass clearly as I try to get to sleep.Called the police but the noise has not abated. Need to lessen the bass.
Thanks! Thanked!800 Ellsworth Philadelphia, PA
I don't really like having a gun club right behind my house--I can hear the guns constantly. It took me a while to know what it was, having lived there for years. I also notice that when people leave they empty their pockets of their spent ammo on the street, bullet casings all over the place. I think it doesn't belong in a residential area. Now with the recent attempted suicide, this isn't the first time something awful has happened here and others in the city. I know it doesn't happen often but still I don't think it belongs in a residential area. We had some issues with this building anyway, cleaning up and trash etc and they have done better but the noise which is constant and now the attempted suicide, it just isn't safe. You can just go there and get a gun and ammo. One young man went into a bathroom at another place and died. you can just walk around with your gun? you can borrow guns there?
Suicide attempt fails at South Philadelphia gun range

A 26-YEAR-OLD man remains in critical condition after attempting suicide at the Philadelphia Archery and Gun Club in South Philadelphia Monday afternoon, police said.
Police and medics responded to the club on Ellsworth Street near 9th about 1:45 p.m. The unidentified man shot himself in his head, and was taken by medics to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, said Officer Tanya Little, a Police Department spokeswoman.
Employees at the shop Tuesday night spoke over the sound of guns being fired in the background, and said they were unaware of anyone being injured there on Monday afternoon. However, neighbors took to an online message board to ask each other why police cars and ambulances were outside the club Monday afternoon.
At least two other people have gone to a gun range to commit suicide in the area within the past year.
Last Aug. 22, a 22-year-old West Chester man shot himself in the head at the Targetmaster Indoor Firearm Range and Gun Shop on Wilmington-West Chester Pike in Concord Township. And on Feb. 14, a 25-year-old man killed himself in the restroom at the same club. n· Reported by Pearlgrl · Flag Flagged

I was excited when the old cabinet maker's shop was purchased in 2007. I heard it was going to be converted to a single-family home, and the permits and construction that started shortly thereafter confirmed as much.
Fast forward to November, 2011, and the permitted-work has not been completed on the property. Once or twice a year, some contractor or another is coming out and making some banging noise, but no visible progress is made.
Certainly the original work permits have expired by now, but the facade still sports plywood. The rear door on S Franklin St is boarded up in violation of L&I's "doors and windows" regulations, and new sheathing that was installed several years ago is still exposed.
I hesitated to file a complaint for a couple years, but going on 4 years is just getting ridiculous.
