  • 1436 S 13th St Philadelphia, PA 19147 - Passyunk Square
    Cars and trucks routinely drive in excess of 50mph on this small, residential section of 13th street, between Reed and Dickinson. We have over 20 small children, most under 5 years old, living on this block. Posted/enforced speed limits, "children playing" signage, AND speed bumps will help to prevent child fatalities from the unnecessary speeding traffic.
  • 1345 Ellsworth Street Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    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.

    Owner was fined previously under missing/broken window ordinance. Pulled a permit months ago but has made no repairs.

  • 1100-1142 S 11th St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    People try to use the trash cans but they are too full and never emptied on time. Not town room the design of these is majorly flawed since you have to touch the handle to open it
  • 1201 Daly St Philadelphia, PA - South Philadelphia
    open trash bags, litter everywhere
  • 1140 South 12th Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    Starting Point: South 12th and Ellsworth to South 12th and Latona. There is trash all over the place, leaves blocking drains. It doesn't seem like the people living here care much about their block and community. Where is the SWEEP Team to enforce this? http://www.philadelphiastreets.com/sweep.aspx
  • 1036 Tree St Philadelphia, PA - South Philadelphia
    I called 311 about 3 weeks ago about an alley light out in the alley way between 10th and 11th Tree and Daly Sts the light is directly behind 1034 Tree Street; Access to the alley may be obtained on the 10th street alley way. I am a heart patient and I would gladly change the light if I could not to bother you with this but I cannot get a ladder that long.
    My house was broken into by the back and I am concerned about my safety.
    Yesterday someone from Land I was out, they parked but did not go into or near the alley. After several minutes the man moved his vechile and proceeded N on S 11th Street. He did not come back. I sat and waited. This is a dangerous area and we need a light to lighten up the back of our houses. I do have an outdoor light that goes on if someone passes but this did not deter the person who broke in. Thank you for your help

    We have a trash problem on 10th Street, there is no denying that. We have sent letters to the Christ United Presbyterian Church specifically asking them to keep the front of their building litter free. Over the holidays neighbors removed a huge bag of trash from the front of the church alone. A letter was sent to the church director saying, "We cleaned up your property. Now it's your turn." Yeah, and nothing changed. All of the neighbors in our neighborhood work together to keep the litter in check. Except a few properties. This church is one of them.

    Update April 2012: Still no effort is made by the church. During a recent neighborhood clean-up day we removed BAGS of trash and weeded the tree beds out front.

  • 761 S. 8th St. B Philadelphia, PA - Bella Vista
    Unrelenting illegal dumping in front of my house. Most recent was 15ft of plasic piping. Also filled trash bags, clothes, furniture, etc. It's then up to me to remove these things & I've been reported to the sanitation police. No help from the trash commissioner, 311, police.
  • 1201 Ellsworth Street Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Public eyesore and safety hazard- broken, damaged sidewalk needs to be replaced along this corner property. Parts of sidewalk are missing and the surface is uneven, cracked and in some cases missing entirely. This is a transit stop on the Rt 23 bus that runs down 12th street.
  • Pothole Acknowledged
    1345 Morris St Philadelphia, PA 19148, USA - Wharton-Hawthorne-Bella Vista
    Pothole is between the pedestrian cutouts on the north intersection of Watts St and Morris St.
  • 1356 E Passyunk Ave Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    So going on 4 weeks now that the lights on this intersection have been malfunctioning. All directions are bad, but the lights for Passyunk Ave. are really bad. allow only 1 car to go before changing over to yellow. green light lasts literally 5-10 seconds. timing needs to be fixed. people are starting to ignore light and run read.......in all directions. this is already a bad intersection due to it being a 5 way.
  • 1101-1111 S 2nd St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Pennsport-Whitman-Queen
    Trash dumped in abandoned construction site
