  • Abandoned House Acknowledged
    Apt Near 904 Ellsworth St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Between 906 Ellsworth St. and the garage closest to the corner there is an abandoned house. It shelter quite a few homeless people. This place has become a haven for drug use, prostitution, and violence. This place needs to be boarded up immediately! It is also smells terrible and the urination and defecation in the street needs to stop now! What a nice neighborhood it's a shame nothing has been done up to this point.
  • 1158 S. 8th Street Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    L&I was at the property yesterday, boarded up the dangerous entry points to the building and posted a No Trepassing sign. It's a start but more needs to be done.
  • 1230 Ellsworth St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Abandoned house has been sitting empty for over a year. Trash collects from menus, flyers, political door hangers, South Philly gazette, etc. Backyard overgrown with weeds. House is a blight on the neighborhood.
  • 1240 Ellsworth St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Sidewalk is broken up and needs to be replaced at this vacant lot. This is on a heavily traveled subway connector street and has been a safety hazard for at least 5 years now.
  • 1155 S. 8th Street Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    This property is on the corner of 8th and Federal Streets. This property is very large with a garage and could be a wonderful addition to the neighborhood if it were not vacant. This house too is in violation of the doors and windows law. It is a frequent target of graffiti, loitering, and trash.
  • 12th And Reed Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    There's a drainage area being built on the corner here, right now it's a few feet deep and dirt. My son and I were playing in it today with his trucks and he stepped into a pile of leaves and disappeared into a drainage pipe. I had to put my arm up to my shoulder in the pipe and was able to grab him and pull him out. I've never been so scared in my life. I had the firemen across the street stick some cones in the drainage pipes, all of which were hidden by leaves.

    This is a serious danger to any kids in the area and even smaller dogs. They need proper caps on the drainage pipes like the finished ones on the other side of the park or something.

  • Dumping Archived
    1200 Ellsworth St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Repeated dumping by house on southwest corner of Ellsworth. Couch was taken but people keep emptying the contents of their house onto a community maintained trash can.
  • 1100 Washington Avenue Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    The 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.
  • 732 Mcclellan St Philadelphia, PA - Wharton-Hawthorne-Bella Vista
    My city stinks because of our city trash trucks have bad seals on the rear of the trucks. Every trash day the city gets a fresh coat of trash truck juice. The juice just leaks out the back of the trash trucks. And if it rain the night before than we really get alot of trash truck juice. The FACT of the matter is if one trash trucks route is to pickup trash from 200 to 400 house and a 1 to 2mile area, This truck just coat 2 miles of the city with juice just times that by 10. Heres another fact if a trash truck dumps trash at a unapproved site they get fined. Well trash is not only solid but its liquid to. So if the city of philadelphia is not going to makes sure the rear seals on their trucks are safe than maybe they need to be fine by the E.P.A.
