  • 1001 Cottman Ave. Philadelphia, PA - Fox Chase
    Chuck's Alibi has no respect for there neighbors. There so called valet parking is for a very small parking lot so the valet people park all there patron's cars in the surrounding neighborhood in front of people's houses. Such as on 7300 and 7400 Rising Sun Ave., 7300 Palmetto St. and all over Bleigh St. The patron's also park in front of our house and are very rude when asked to move. They also fill up the lot's of Dunkin Dount's, Wendy's and Custurds Last stand. They are supposed to be towed if parking in these lot's but it is never enforced. The Patron's are loud, rude, and hang out in front of our houses. I saw an accident almost happen right in front of the Alibi because patron's were in the street and patron's were making illegal UTURNS on Oxford Ave. Please notify Chuck's Alibi that this is a residential neighborhood and something needs to be done to respect the neighbor's that live around the restaurant.
  • Summerdale Ave. Ave Philadelphia, PA 19124 - Summerdale
    Summerdale Ave. from Roosevelt Blvd. to Oxford Ave has many pot holes that have been filled many times. The street is a hazard to drive & a accident waiting to happen by drivers trying to miss the pot holes. Many streets in the area of Oxford Circle have been repaved & they where not no were near as bad as Summerdale Ave.

    Dear Mr. Labrusciano:

    This email is in response to your request for an all-way stop installation and/or speed humps at the intersection of Dorcas Street and Hartel Avenue.

    The Pennsylvania Vehicle Code requires that all-way stop and speed controls are warranted by an engineering study and the Streets Department is legally obligated to comply with the Vehicle Code and related PennDOT regulations. The study evaluates conditions at the intersection, such as Police accident records, traffic volumes, speed and sight.

    Our study of this location concluded that the conditions at this intersection do not satisfy the warrants required by the Commonwealth for the installation of all-way stop controls or speed hump.

    Thank you for bringing this matter to our attention and for your interest in traffic safety.

    Patrice L. Nuble

  • 1314 Shelmire Street Philadelphia, PA - Fox Chase

    The neighbor is building a cement "wall" around the property. Dried cement all over the sidewalks, very unsafe to walk on. The lawn is littered with debris.

    At one time they had 2 small dogs kept in garage with doors closed in this heat while this construction is going on.. One dog "ran away" and the other is still there as of 6/14/12. That's when I last saw the little dog. My opinion is the first dog died and maybe this other little guy is dead too. I cannot be sure. The workers there don't speak English and I don't see the owner often, he does'nt speak good English either. Communication is difficult.

  • 622 E Carver Street Philadelphia, PA - Summerdale
    My neighbor has a severe back-up in their outside drain. The sewage is backing up into my drain and also causes a stench. I recently had to pay to have my drain unclogged, and the contractor told me they have grease in their sewage puddle, and my drain cannot support both houses. I have asked on a few occasions for them to fix the issue. In addition, their drain pipe going up the house is broken and it is currently resting on my awning, which has the potential of causing an accident if it falls on someone below. It has been several months and I need help getting the neighbors to correct their issue, which is causing me problems and money.

  • 521 Levick Street Philadelphia, PA - Summerdale

    Water is running out of the pipe on the curb and rolling downstream continuously which is causing major ice build-up at the curb of my garage. Due to the inclement weather and the structure of houses (all street parking with the exception of two garage parking) the water is rising in front of these garages cause ice to build up.

    This is dangerous for the pedestrians and makes it difficult to enter into garage safely. Contacted water department and L&I however, the water continues to run affecting primarily my neighbor and myself.
