  • 412 North Front Street Philadelphia, PA - Northern Liberties
    There is a growing number of homeless people gathering and creating a "community" of tents, bikes, grocery carts and clotheslines underneath the overpass and it is growing each day. They defecate everywhere, collect garbage and seem to be growing each day. They access through holes in chain link fences on Callowhill Street and the Delilah's parking lot. It's become a safety and health issue for both the residents of the area and the homeless.

  • 440-470 North Broad Street Philadelphia, PA 19130, USA - Callowhill
    Plate # TX 43928 @ 4:15AM, Tuesday January 1st, 2013. The driver had the green light but did not yield to the biker and skateboarder, instead he seemed to speed up to hit them. He hit them on with the right front end of his vehicle and did not pullover to see if they were ok. Tried to check if the two were oky and concerned that their bodies hadn't yet gone into shock, they "walked it off." Felt the need to report it anyway.
