Notified About

  • 2137 Catharine Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Work is being done to the exterior of 2137 Catharine Street without permit. In addition, the contractors are not taking proper measures to cover the exterior of the home in order to prevent dust from spreading across the ares. Lastly, contractors recently dumped a truck of sand on Catharine Street, which now takes up a parking spot.
  • 21st And Fitzwater Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest

    Over a week ago now a drunk driver crashed and wrecked 6 cars at this intersection. They should immediately have had to pay for the clean up of the entire block, which the remnants have blown all over the place. I have tried to pick up as much as I can but it isn't my job to clean up after a complete idiot who drunkenly ran his car head long into a car just after a stop sign.

    The police have all of his information in the case file.

  • 2063 Saint Albans Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    In rear of 2064 saint Albans
  • 2423 Grays Ferry Avenue Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    The body of an orange and black bicycle has been locked to the stop sign at the corner of Grays Ferry and Catharine for months. The bike has no wheels, no seat, and no handle bars, and has not been touched for months. Please remove this as it's becoming an eyesore.
  • 2000 Block Of Montrose Street - Schuylkill Southwest
    This block is Permit Exempt due to it's two churches and has become long term free parking for out of state scofflaws. It's not patrolled by PPA so bad inspections, no registrations, and even illegal parking revenue is being missed. Let's not forget about this drivers getting FREE parking ...not even the annual registration and parking permit revenue.
    Since our taxes are going up 10 times I think something should be done with these freeloaders. Plus if they're not using Philly as their "residence" are they also skipping out on the City Wage taxes putting more burden on actual tax paying residents ...and I'm almost certain that's breaking the law several times.
  • 764 South 23rd Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Schuylkill Southwest

    These weeds are getting out of control. The owner of the property should take care of this or implore his tenants to tend to the trash and now weeds that overrun the sidewalk in front of this property. This is the worst I've seen in the surrounding area.

    I may end up pulling these weeds myself because I am tired of looking at them, but feel that I already do enough on my own block (not this block) that this shouldn't be my responsibility. Everyone should pull their weight (and weeds) to keep the neighborhood looking clean. A clean/tidy neighborhood helps promote safety; it is known.

  • 901 S 20th St - Schuylkill Southwest
    Construction crew for 1942 Christian have created an illegal "no parking" zone by spray painting pavement on 20th St.
  • 2106 Catharine St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest

    The entire house is in a state of complete deterioration, front and back. It is most obvious in the back, with trees growing out of the house in both the 1st and second stories. Windows are shattered, the boarded up portions have come off and the backyard is a jungle of trees, weeds and garbage causing smell and rodent problems.

    The sidewalk behind the home is similarly cracked and broken with trash spilling out of the broken fence.

  • 1000 S 23rd St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    I have been noticing a lot of dog poop in our neighborhood. It’s not just this block, but the surrounding areas. It’s becoming a problem and it has a simple solution: CLEAN UP AFTER YOUR DOG. Please, the people of Philadelphia, clean up after your dog. Not just for me, but for the community as a whole and for sanitation reasons.
