    This vacant lot seems abandoned. There are a pile of 25 - 30 tires strewn about the sidewalk. Residents of N. Reese St. dump their garbage bags here (I, myself, have seen this done 3 times). Other items such as carpet ripped from a dwelling, half a water heater and other items are dumped here.

    Not only dirty but dangerous.

  • 176 W. Master St Philadelphia, PA - Fishtown
    This is a vacant lot in the middle of the block. It is overgrown with giant weeds and is a hiding place for rodents and possum. Trash is also dumped near the sidewalk which attracts more vermin.
  • 1730-1816 Germantown Ave Philadelphia, PA 19122, USA - Kensington

    Two empty lots both ripe for crime. It's on a single block. It's the 1800 block. There is no address for these lots I can find.
    These lots are on Germantown Ave. between W. Montgomery Ave and Berks St.

    A great deal of illegal dumping, sometimes drug addicts set up camp in these lots too. Weeds are taller 5ft tall. I've had to run from dogs in one of these lots twice.

    Considering Sabina Rose O'Donnell was dragged into such a lot and murdered mere blocks away at the beginning of last summer this needs to be remedied. It's scary walking by these lots even during the day on the way to the grocery store.
    Fine the absent owner. Clean it up.
