48th St Town Watch

Notified About

  • 1304 South 51st Street Philadelphia, PA 19143, USA - Philadelphia Planning District University/Southwest
    This tawny colored male pit mix is tied to a street sign at 51st and kingsessing. He is eating his own feces and does not look well.
  • 4832 Baltimore Ave Philadelphia, PA 19143, USA - Cobbs Creek
    There are at least three sinking spots in the west bound bike lane, one of which features a deep hole through the pavement.
  • 4812-14 Chester Ave Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia Planning District University/Southwest
    Three cars were parked on the block a month ago and haven't moved since. Two are directly in front of 4814 Chester Ave - a grey Dodge Stratus, PA plates GBH 1738 and a white Dodge Stratus PA plates GDP 5067. The third is directly in front of 4812 Chester ave - a grey Chevrolet Corsica MI plates BPN 7017. The one in front of 4812 parked just short of a car length past a driveway (if they pulled up another two feet someone could park behind them) so they are actually eating up almost two full parking spots. It had been full of boxes, large bags and trash but someone cleaned it out recently. Not sure what the ordinance is but it seems like there must be a law that you can't just use 3-4 parking spots on a residential block as your personal car storage.
  • (pothole) Archived
    4499 Springfield Ave Philadelphia, PA 19143 - Cobbs Creek
  • 4800 Kingsessing Avenue Philadelphia, PA - Philadelphia Planning District University/Southwest
    Inhabitants of apartments at 4800 Kingsessing, and 1130 48th Street, directly across (owned by the same person), continue to create a barrage of obnoxious noise that can be heard for a block in every direction. 3AM, 3PM, doesn't matter. It's unpredictable but incessant. All morning, until noon, aggressive dogs held on chains by men who loiter at 4800 Kingsessing created an unbearable amount of noise. The garbage, noise, and aggressive behavior of the men and their girlfriends (who live in the house) have been a source of unending despair for everyone in the community since the house was rented to them about a year ago. Police are aware of the problem but have proven unable to address it in any effective way.
