    no racks
  • HUGE pothole Archived
    324 S 12th St Philadelphia, PA 19107 - City Center East
    Huge chunk missing from between vestigal train tracks. The hole is probably 3ft x 3ft x 4in (deep), and hurts my car every time I forget it's there.
  • S Juniper St Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
    The city put in new trees about 2 years ago. In no time they were knocked down by delivery trucks for the Doubletree hotel. The cuts in the sidewalk are now gaping holes filled with water and trash. It's so bad I don't walk down that street anymore.
  • 801 South St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Bella Vista
  • 518 S 7th St Philadelphia, PA - Queen Village
    Builders have had the sidewalk fenced off for many months, and they've created an unnavigable pothole in the street. Pedestrians are forced into the street; bikes are forced close to cars; cars are forced to stop.
  • 334 S. 12th Street Philadelphia, PA - City Center East

    The south side wall of this condo building has been grafittied. It states "Lovers" scribbled in large yellow letters.


  • 900 Spruce Street Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
  • 1208 South Street Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
    L & M Food Market, located at 1208 South Street operates a junky looking table and puts large,bulky, used items on the sidewalk for sale during day and evening business hours. These items narrow the sidewalk and make it difficult to walk. The random used objects, randomly placed on the sidewalk and/or a make shift table, also make the block look trashy. They also chain used bikes up to the poles and put a sale sign out , as well as cheap cell phone signs in the street and over hanging the awning. I do not believe they have a permit for outside sales and would like appropriate department to look into this and if found to be illegal, take the necessary steps to stop them from doing this in the future. Thank you.
  • Noise Open
    1207 Pine Street Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
    Residential noise problem- music blasting at random hours; today a dog in the house barking all day. Strong smell of pot coming from the house at times. Have tried to discuss issue but does not help.
  • PDLC van idling (2) Acknowledged
    10th And Sansom St - City Center East
    I noticed another PDLC van idling at the same spot - different license plate id: OB65862. Again, the vans should just turn off the engine and keep the air clean instead of polluting.
  • 307 South 13th Street Philadelphia, PA 19107, USA - City Center East

    Every year about this time, the streets in Wash West get painted for vendor stalls. It doesn't wear off for most of the year and creates a confusing and unsightly road surface. Can't they use chalk or water-soluble paint instead?

    Is anyone allowed to paint the road surface? I'd like to add a few lines myself.

  • 11th And Lombard Philadelphia, PA - City Center East
    vandalized broken trash compacter and litter spilling all over. City not maintaining these machines and emptying them properly and on a schedule. Poor investment and cost jobs too!!!!UPDATE: problem continues and expanding. Initial complaint addressed once, but machine is NOT fixed and makes one think the blinking lights are but a ruse!! Sad loss of revenue on foolish gadget/device. Probably true at other locations.
