  • 18th Oregon Philadelphia, PA - Girard Estates
    Lets make South Philadelphia a cleaner place to live and put a new big belly solar powered trash unit so we don't have dirty streets. With chaos on this corner it will be of great use. Please help
  • Horrible stench Acknowledged
    739 Earp St Philadelphia, PA 19147 - Passyunk Square
    There is an horrible stench coming from this house that is so bad the neighbors a half block in any direction can no longer open their windows. And there's a rat problem now, too. What is the smell? Who knows? Cats/dogs/death?
  • Latona St Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    Cheesesteak wrappers, soda cups and cheesefry sleeves are strewn through the entirety of South Philadelphia, emblazoned with logos that make it easy to point a finger at the two biggest culprits. Pat's and Geno's need to provide more waste receptacles and should donate resources to aid in the trash clean-up that's organized by the Passyunk Square Civic Association.
  • 1400-1408 S Broad St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Everyday this car wash let's all of its soap and chemicals run over the sidewalk and puddle in the street. The sidewalk is always very slippery due to the constant soapy water. Strong chemical usage is also evident due to the erosion of the cement in the sidewalk. It is a shame that this continues on a very prominent corner on Broad street after being reported on seeclickfix several times.
  • 30 Wolf St Philadelphia, PA - Pennsport-Whitman-Queen

  • 1700 Morris St Philadelphia, PA 19145, USA - Newbold neighborhood

    Di Silvestro Playground located at 1500 Morris Street in the Newbold part of Philadelphia has created chaos for the residences who live directly around the playground. Young males ranging from the ages of 10 to 20 have begun to sit on parked vehicles and on the steps of residences after playing basketball. In groups of 6 and more they practice fight each other and lean their bikes on the vehicles nearby. Many of them check to see if the doors of the cars are locked when loitering in front of private homes. Along with the damage left from the bikes, they sit on hoods and in empty pickup truck beds. You can clearly see a string of cars that have sneaker marks and indented hoods from the group of males. They are normally present from the hours of 3pm to 8pm.

    Another issue is the fact that they also climb on top of the roof of the community center currently under construction and the equipment containers. Since there is no mediator or authority at a playground filled of teenagers after school it becomes chaotic inside and immediately around the playground.

    They often film themselves fighting each other and their activities to glorify the gang like culture. As an example seen in a video on YouTube called “SOUTH PHILLY 15th STREET goonz ( K.WALKER )” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DETfL6ZAqdM

    Many immigrants on the westside 1700 block of 15th street have no voice as they accept that a large group of thugs sit in front of their homes without confrontation in fear of retaliation. They become trapped until these young males leave or continue to another step after leaving all their litter behind. I myself have asked them to politely move off my step and have been cursed at when doing so. Calling the police is useless as they just move when they yell 5O. There is no reasoning with these males, they lack tact and respect.

    None of these males live immediately around the playground so they have no respect for the area around it. Often they are playing basketball bouncing the ball way past midnight on nice nights in an unlit court as residence try to sleep for work the next day. There used to be a fence which closed the basketball court off afterhours but since the community center is under construction the caretaker of the playground is no longer around. As this is just the beginning of the summer the playground is subjected to FLASHMOB like conditions after school with no presents of authority.

    "We run south philly" qouted in the video.

  • W Moore St Philadelphia, PA - Newbold neighborhood
    People dump their garbage here (Southeast corner of Moore and Bancroft Streets) week after week. Streets picks some of it up but not all and the pile continues to grow. It is disgusting.
  • 1543 Morris Street Philadelphia, PA - Newbold neighborhood
    Swatters are now inhabiting the bombed out building at 16th/Morris. The property had been vacant following a fire a year ago. Neighbors have complained that they have been soliciting people walking and parking nearby the building.
  • 12th And Tasker Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    There's a black Mercedes SUV that everyday is parked either in the crosswalk, or in between the crosswalk and the parking sign on the southeast corner. it has florida license plate E89 4??. It also has a PA 'Police Business' sign on the dashboard. I'm not sure what police business it has blocking the cross walk for the past month (and more).

    Also, if you go into google street view, you can see it illegally parked in the crosswalk too! Who knows old that is. I'm including that in the photo too.

  • 1710 S. 15th Street Philadelphia, PA - Newbold neighborhood

    At 1710 S. 15th Street is a victim of loitering everyday.
    Access to her home is blocked by groups of young black males who sit on her step and chill. It is the nearest home with an awning for shade and a corner step to hide what they are doing. Everyday when I walk past her home after work I would see these guys just OWN this home. She is stuck in her home and left to clean up after all the trash they leave behind once they leave. She's a little old lady and it's sad to see these thugs use her property as a place to cool off after a hot day playing basketball. Empty blunt guts and beer containings are left in their wake without regard for her home.

    They tagged her air conditioner unit to make their turf.

  • 1308 Tasker St Philadelphia, PA 19148, USA - Passyunk Square
    Tasker between Broad and Juniper is very dark. A small alley behind PGW makes the block more treacherous for commuters of Broad Street Subway, 29 bus, and C bus. If pedestrian lights are not an option, PGW should install a security light alongside the building.
