  • 2013 Kimball St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    On Nov. 1st, the Streets Department dug a deep hole in front of 2013 Kimball St. Nearly four parking spaces on the street are impossible to use because of the hole. They posted no parking signs for Nov. 1st - Nov. 4th. As of Nov. 16th, the hole is still not filled. Numerous residents have called the streets department for information. They have been rude, deceptive, and threatening during these conversations. They have blatantly lied to us, made promises that have not been kept, given false names and numbers to send further complaints, and threatened to tow every car on the street unnecessarily. This behavior is unacceptable on too many levels to list. FIX THIS HOLE!!!
  • 1907 Christian St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    1907 Christian St has no windows. The rear of the property is falling down and is unsafe. The backyard is a health hazard, filled with garbage. Vernen, including racoons and opossum, have been seen occupying the property and are unsafe for the residents. Please do something about this property!!
  • 768 S 21st St Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Schuylkill Southwest

    The empty sidewalk tree pit at this address has been left to overgrow with excessive amounts of weeds. Trash has progressively become trapped or flat out thrown into the pit over the past few months. With the thick collection of weeds it never moves and simply rots causing both a consistent smell and eyesore.

    Does or will the city compel neighbors to uphold a modicum of respect for the outside of their homes/rentals?

  • Near Corner Of 21st And Carpenter Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest

    This older model Honda that has a flat front tire has been parked on Carpenter Street near 21st street for at least 2 months yet has never moved. It has had a flat tire almost the entire time and is now accumulating trash/debris under it. Its tags are current (until April) and it has a permit parking sticker. All the neighbors have been complaining about this car that is obviously inoperable due to its flat tire, and has been left abandoned on the street. The PPA person said that unfortunately because the tags are current as of now, they can’t issue any tickets but to call the police so they can issue one for the flat tire. Not only has it become an eyesore but it is also taking up parking from others, whose cars are operable and obviously in use, could be using.

    Is there any way to find out who the owner is so they can at least fix the tire so it doesn't look abandoned?

  • 1602 Catharine St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest

    The Philadelphia Police Department camera has been removed from this location and needs to be put back up as soon as possible. This location is problematic and still subject to crime.

    The activity at 16th and Catherine poses security problems for the neighborhood.

  • 757 S Chadwick St Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Neighbors with garages park their secondary vechicles on the sidewalk in front of their garages. This form of parking is a hazard to pedestrians and creates a blockage for emergency vechicles (as stated in previous issue logs). Recently, signs have been posted showing that this is now a "no parking" street. It would be nice if the individuals who supported the designation of this street as "no parking" would follow it's instructions. Solution: Learn to park your car within a 3 block radius like everyone else.
  • 2248 Christian Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    Dangerously large and inconvenient pothole. One cone. It needs to be filled.
  • 1900 Catherine Street Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    The Stop Sign on the NW Corner of 19th and Catherine--for traffic going south on 19th Street, is knocked down.
  • Kauffman Street Philadelphia, PA 19146, USA - Schuylkill Southwest
    This is what the alley looks like the day after 'trash day' on Kaufmann. Half the garbage was put out in bags on the curb instead of in cans, and as the trash trucks drive down this alley they just run over the bags letting the contents spew in the alley. In other cases the trash cans themselves get knocked into the street by the trash trucks and the trucks just run them over instead of stopping, getting out, fixing or emptying the can, etc. This ruins the cans and leaves more trash spewing in the street. It's a hot summer and this trash just sits and rots. Half the trash was not picked up this week - as you can see it is still in the alley. It is disgusting. unsanitary and not totally the fault of the residents of both Catherine and Madison who have their trash 'picked up' in this alley. The city needs to address this ongoing problem.
  • 1000 S Cleveland St Philadelphia, PA - Schuylkill Southwest
    The corner lot on S Cleveland St and Carpenter St has not been cared for in at least 7 months. The weeds are growing as tall as trees, the sidewalk is rubble and overgrown, there is dog waste and this morning there is human waste and flies.
