Notified About

  • 945 Washington Ave Philadelphia, PA 19140, USA - Wharton-Hawthorne-Bella Vista

    truck parking across the sidewalk is OPEN

    There is a large white "Carpet time" van with that parks nose in to the building line blocking the sidewalk rather than parallel to the street. It blocks pedestrian right of way and butts out just about 4 inches from the flow of traffic on this busy street all day and all night. This situation has been going on for years and should not be allowed to continue.

  • 1001-1021 Washington Ave Philadelphia, PA - Bella Vista

    About a month ago PGW was replacing pipes on the South Side of the 1000 block of Washington Avenue. However, yellow PVC pipes, cones and PGW placards were left on the North Side of Washington (right in front of Sherwin Williams.) after the construction wrapped up. Since then, a taco truck has used the pipes/cones to block off a parking space for themselves 24 hours a day. Worse, they actually block out the two spots in front of "their" spot with PGW cones / placards for ease of parking. Our neighborhood has lost three parking spots and we're left with unsightly construction debris.

    Disgruntled neighbors moved the pipes / placards to the sidewalk to free-up parking spots last night.

    PGW needs to REMOVE the pipes (now sitting on the sidewalk and blocking pedestrian traffic) and have a word to the taco truck about using PGW property to block off three legal parking spots, designated for residents.

  • 800 South 8th Street Philadelphia, PA - Bella Vista
    A Mexican Food lunch truck has been abandoned with flat tires on South 8th Street just South of Washington Avenue for more than 6 weeks. It is parked legally but an eye sore. I will take photos of it later and post. In the meantime, it should be removed. It clearly isn't running--it hasn't moved. I will also email 311.
  • 1298 Annin Street Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    On the Annin side of Butchie Alley, between 12th and 13th, tags on multiple wall types.
  • 407 Fulton St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Queen Village
    All the residents of the 300 block of Fulton St place all their trash in front of 767 S. 4th street every week for pick up and inevitably a large portion of this trash gets left on 4th street. The neighbors that look out on 4th street are tired of picking up this trash each week. The City or the Headhouse District should clean this trash up or provide actual door to door trash pick up for the 300 block of Fulton St each week. In addition, the 300 block of Fulton street does indeed have outlet for a trash truck, contrary to the mistaken sign posted that says "No Outlet".
  • 1156 South 12th Street Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Tag "OCP" in white paint on wood telephone pole. In the past two weeks, a few of these in same paint color showed up.

    This house has been vacant for years. There is no sidewalk at all and is a major hazard as the house is close to the Broad St line subway stop and a major pedestrian area.

  • 1100 E. Moyamensing Ave Philadelphia, PA - Pennsport-Whitman-Queen
    This is an auto body shop. They regularly have cars parked all over the sidewalk making it difficult to pass without walking in the street.
  • 1139 S. 8th Street Philadelphia, Pa - Passyunk Square

    This property has been vacant for years. Windows are in violation of no boarding up law. Side door has been open inviting anyone who wishes to enter. Unsightly, dangerous, and ignored. All too common. JP Morgan bank owns this property. They should pay a bit more attention to it. This is our neighborhood!
