    Cars are regularly double parked illegally here, blocking two different sidewalks, obstructing pedestrians and making it impossible to pass for the elderly and individuals with handicaps. This has been going on for approximately a year. The cars should be ticketed or towed if they block the sidewalks.

    The location is approximately 325 S. Fawn St, near the intersection of Fawn and Panama Street. The nearest cross street is 12th and Panama.

  • 325 South 12th Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - City Center East
    I own a home on Spruce between 11th and 12th, however, I walk my dog down 12th between Spruce and Pine on a regular basis. This section of W Washington Square must be the dirtiest block in the entire neighborhood. There is almost always raw garbage, various bags ripped open and dog feces scattered up and down the block. I understand that much of this block is landlord owned with renters occupying the units, however, that is no excuse for not holding the owners responsible for keeping the neighborhood clean and sanitary. What can we do as a neighborhood group to ensure that these property owners are held accountable for either their tenants behavior or the upkeep of their properties. Calling 311 is a long drawn out process that does not change behavior. Perhaps writing tickets with penalties will get owners to manage their properties more appropriately. No wonder Philly has the number one population of rodents in the US, What can we do to clean up this neighborhood and stop people from using Philly as one big garbage can?
  • 200 S 10th Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - City Center East
    Several times I have seen cyclists riding down 10th street in the car lane when there is a new bicycle lane on the other side of the street. I have witnessed several cyclists almost run into cars because they do not look when changing lanes, then give an attitude after THEY almost run into a person's car. This has occurred several times in this area
  • 415 South Tenth Street Philadelphia, Pa., PA - City Center East
    The sewer is constantly emitting a very foul odor. The whole block smells terrible, especially when the wind blows.
