  • 746 S 24th St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest

    This SUV parked *all* weekend in this same spot and received NO TICKETS. Why??? Not only did it block the crosswalk, it blocked the curb cut. The plates have a "disabled" symbol -- and apparently the driver doesn't care if anyone else has to walk out into the street or get hit by a car turning left from Grays Ferry to 24th because this enormous SUV has blocked all visibility.

    (This car sat in the adjacent alley another weekend without getting ticketed, even though others were trying to access the alley for legitimate reasons.)

    Please make sure this car gets ticketed just as everyone else does! The driver is getting the message that s/he can park wherever s/he likes, and that's totally uncool.

  • 1708 Montrose Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    A homeless man is using the alley area behind houses to store junk and sleep. We alerted the 1708 neighbors and called the non-emergency number. The police came yesterday and moved a few things to look around. Sanitation department said they are not responsible to move him and his things. Roommate saw him this morning ranting and raving to a neighbor and block or two away that someone had touched his stuff and threatened to "hurt the @#$% who did it."
  • Nw Corner 18th & Carpenter Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Slum lord who owns this now-vacant lot will not clean up the huge weeds and garbage strewn all over. Gets worse every day - this property has been a problem for years. BTW - MetroImpact has NOT yet acquired this parcel - they would never let this happen.
  • 2221 St Albans Street philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    At 10:15am this morning I saw a young female tenant of 2221 St Albans Street leave the property with several bags of trash, two of which she left in front of 2209 St Albans Street. She then threw others into a small gated courtyard next to 2209 and left the remaining bags at the curb.
  • 921 S. 21st Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    The residents of 921 S. 21st Street and 2124 Carpenter Street are using the 2100 blocks of Carpenter St, Kimball St, and 21st Street to keep and store various used cars. These cars often sit here and do not move. They are treating the neighborhood as their own personal used car lot and taking away parking spots from deserving residents. These cars often times have questionable license tplates and I can provide photos if requested or I will post at anotther time.Both residents have a questionable "car business", but need to realize ou rneighborhood is not their personal used car lot.
  • 908s 21st Street - Schuylkill Southwest
    Roof starting to collapse
  • 2100 Saint Albans Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Blighted, vacant property on street with +90% occupied residential houses. Front door on Saint Albans is a piece of plywood (painted brown by the city after it was tagged with graffiti). There is also plywood on the rear of the property.
  • 1018 South Bouvier Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Schuylkill Southwest
    Someone has placed a series of red cones in the street to block people from parking so this individual will always have a parking spot. Street parking is not reserved and as such these red cones are illegal.
  • 1000 Block Of South Bouvier Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    I have owned a house on this block since 2009 and there have been no less than 5-6 instances of PGW coming out because of a broken gas line (most recently this past Saturday 1.7.12). I suspect that the gas lines beneath the street of Bouvier are very old and in need of replacement. Currently, PGW has done nothing more than place bandaids on frequently breaking pipes, in turn creating an extremely hazardous condition for those living on Bouvier and the surrounding area. Action needs to be taken to replace the pipes or come up with a permanent solution before someone gets seriously injured.
  • 2409 South Street Philadelphia, PA - Fitler Square
    Street Light Broken. Numerous reports of Dogs and People getting zapped! This has been reported to 311, 911, the Fire department, and PECO and the problem persists!
    THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS! Please address --asap.
    Thank You, Richard T. Desvernine Jr.
  • 701 S 22nd Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Members of the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ of the Apostolic Faith have been routinely using the sidewalk across the street from the church as a parking lot for members who apparently are too lazy to find a legal spot and then walk to the services. The church does own the lot and makes full use of it for not only parking but also for running an illegal restaurant from it during the warmer months. On weekends, when the lot is full, members then make use of the sidewalk in front of the lot for parking. They also park on both sides of the street with huge private buses blocking the public bus stop located just on the corner of 22nd and Bainbridge. Many of the vehicles illegally parked are from New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia--out of town members of the church who do not pay any local taxes, but feel entitled to use public sidewalks as personal property.
  • On 21st At The Corner Of Montrose And S. 21st Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest

    This silver Chevy Cruz has been parked illegally for weeks on end now at the corner of Montrose and S. 21st street (on 21st). Cars can barely turn onto 21st street safely because it's jutting out so far. You have to try to maneuver around it -- while making sure there is no traffic coming down 21st (since there is usually a blind spot trying to view if you can pull out).

    It has continually gotten tickets but has not moved at all and has not been towed. I am starting to wonder if it is stolen or something? I can't imagine the owner has not taken the numerous tickets off and moved it by now if it were parked there by a neighborhood resident.
