  • Little Cresson St Philadelphia, PA - Manayunk
    I have never seen a street so much in disrepair. It is actually crumbling apart and looks more like a dirt road with rocks.
  • 652-698 Roxborough Ave Philadelphia, PA 19128, USA - Roxborough
    There is no storm water/sewer inlet to catch the water that flows down Roxborough Ave. and onto the golf course and adjacent park. During storms large amounts of sediment are deposited on the golf cart path and severe erosion is occurring in the park. The water is flowing along the north side of Roxborough Ave. from Henry Ave towards Magdalena St. The inlet would need to be located on the north side of Roxborough Ave where it intersects with Magdalena St.
  • 8500 Lincoln Dr Philadelphia, PA 19144 - Manayunk
    This section was repaved a year or so ago, then they pulled the surface up a few months ago and have left it unsurfaced.
  • 6222-6238 Pennsylvania 4003 Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - East Falls
    Has been a dangerous construction site for weeks, now impassible on foot—no sidewalk what so ever as a dumpster is now on what was once the sidewalk + the street. Pedestrians now have to walk into the very busy Wissahickon Avenue to get through. It's a mess.
  • 5030 Ridge Ave. PHILA., PA - Manayunk
    overgrown weeds and eroded hill blocking sidewalk near ridge and main streets. people almost have to walk in the street to travel up ridge avenue. it will only get worse this spring/summer. very dangerous... and not HP friendly.
  • Green Lane To Shurs Lane To Ridge Ave Merge To Septa Transfer Philadelphia, PA 19127, USA - Manayunk

    The entire route beginning from Main street where cars are parked on both sides of the road and where the 61 (bus) travels....a cyclist takes their life every day.
    #1 Nobody behind the wheel travels speed limit (25mph) including SEPTA - - they go barreling down Main street from Green Lane to Shurs Lane to Ridge merge to SEPTA transfer, squeezing cyclists - pinning them either to a park car or squeezed by speed behind a moving car.
    #2 the approach to Wissahickon transfer station during a compute is deadly. Cars spontaneously pulling to the curbside to drop off people, SEPTA pulling in and out of the turn-around, cars not wanting to accommodate the bicycle, and people moving, gathering -running across streets for buses.... CRAZY, will happen .someone will get hurt badly -- or it will be fatal.

    Sharrows were put down early June - GREAT 1st step. Hoping step 2 and 3 will follow. Enforcement of travel speed and a solution to the disastrous Wissahickon SEPTA transfer station.

  • 3523 Sunnyside St Philadelphia, PA 19129, USA - East Falls

    As reported by a neighbor- the property is a danger as well as an eyesore:

    Since 2006, the jungle has continued to grow uncontrollably. It has gotten so bad that several neighbors have taken matters into their own hands and planted a make-shift garden in front of this house to mask part of this eyesore.

    Beyond being a bad neighbor and an eyesore, the situation is dangerous. The front porch is rotted completely through in sections and it is not a matter of will it collapse but when will it collapse. We hope it's not when our Mailman is delivering mail. I spent a day cutting ferns down with a saw because they were too thick to cut with clippers. The ferns had grown over to my property line and were completely blocking the sidewalk. The ones I couldn't reach are almost out to the street level. When train commuters walk up Sunnyside Ave. they need to walk in the street to get past the overgrowth and away from the bees. This creates a dangerous situation because many R6 commuters also drive up Sunnyside Ave, and now you have people walking in the street with cars speeding by.
    The front of the propertydoesn't hold a candle to the back of the property. The back yard 3523 Sunnyside Ave poses a health hazard and a safety hazard to the neighboring residents. The yard has been allowed to grow exponentially and encroach on all the neighboring properties. The yard from 3523 is so overgrown it no longer drains and is now full of standing water. We can no longer use our yard (3521) without being attacked by mosquitoes at any time of the day. Particularly strange since my yard is 100% concrete. We have also had several incidents where we've found ticks on ourselves after being in our yard. With Lyme Disease and West Nile Virus being such a concern, do you think I could contact the Health Department since L & I has proven to be yet another dead end?

    The trees inn the back of 3523 are well over 50 feet tall and rotted. I have a skylight in my kitchen in an odd location. The previous owners disclosed that they installed the skylight only after one of the trees from the back yard of 3523 rotted and fell through the kitchen roof. If one of these giant trees falls, it will likely damage or destroy several of the neighboring properties. You can easily see the magnitude of this problem by viewing an aerial image of 3523 from Google earth or Bing, I live in constant fear that one of these giant dying trees will fall on my house; or, his house will set the forest behind his home on fire since the kitchens are located in the rear of our homes and the overgrowth is growing right up into the exterior of his kitchen wall, and has now overtaken the roof as well.


  • Schuylkill River Trail - Philadelphia To Valley Forge Philadelphia, PA 19127, USA - Manayunk
    SEPTA buses drive straight into traffic eastbound on Ridge Ave against the light. There are traffic lights here specifically to meter traffic and allow buses an opportunity to pull onto Ridge yet bus drivers routinely ignore the lights, stopping both lanes of traffic. Traffic heading east will have a green light yet the bus drivers expect cars to yield to buses out of their own sense of self-preservation. This causes backups during rush hour and is even more of a problem when there is snow or ice on the ground and traffic with the right of way cannot stop for the bus running the red light.
  • Bala Cynwyd PA, USA - East Falls
    Coming off the ramp from the Schuylkill towards Kelly Drive/Ridge Ave the pavement is chopped up with no way of getting around the potholes having to merge with oncoming traffic from City Ave
  • 249-265 Green Ln Philadelphia, PA 19128, USA - Manayunk
    263 Green Lane has been boarded up for years on an occupied block
  • Falls Brg Philadelphia, PA - East Falls
    Drivers routinely ignore "do not turn on red" sign and turn right onto the bridge with a red arrow light on jeopardizing pedestrians and bicyclists who are trying to cross the intersection at Kelly Drive and the bridge. Occasionally a police officer may be standing nearby and no driver is ever stopped for this traffic violation.
  • Corner Of Conrad And Sunnyside Streets Philadelphia, PA - East Falls
    The construction dumpster has been overflowing for 9 months without any attempts to be emptied. It is an eyesore to have garbage overflowing.
