  • 1200 Ellsworth Block Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    Open air drug market continues to flourish from Peters street along 12th all the way down to corner of Ellsworth. Full fledged hand offs and payments right on corner by bus stop. Called police, but until they actually stakeout Peters or hide and then take down the dealers, it will continue. Lots of kids on the block and respectable households. End it!
  • Washington Ave Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    From 9th to Broad Street is a trash pit. I guess the business owners dont care. I will take my dollars elsewhere until it is cleaned up.
  • 827 Wharton Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    The second floor window has broken on this house and shards of glass are everywhere in front of the house on the sidewalk and steps.
  • 1100 South 11th Street Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    The restaurants that use the dumpsters on 11th Street between Washington and Ellsworth - across from the 7-11 - leave the doors to the dumpsters open, and allow trash water and/or cleaning supplies to just drain into the street drain. It's gross, smelly and also dangerously slippery on the sidewalk.

  • 8th And Manton Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    On the southeast corner of 8th and Manton, a condemned house was recently demolished. Woohoo!

    But now, the dirt lot is being used for parking. Boo! This is not only creating a mess -- mud and dirt all over the street and sidewalk -- but also creating a hazard to pedestrians and an eyesore to neighbors.

    I'm not positive, but I'm pretty sure there is a permitting process that has to happen to turn a zoned residential property into a parking lot.

    Further, I think there are some regulations about keeping empty lots fenced off.

    So, this is a ZBA issue, an L&I issue, and a PPA issue.

    I know I know, parking in South Philly, enforcement, blah blah blah. At least it's on record now.

  • 700 Federal Street Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    Another mess...
  • 1336 S 8th St Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    Vacant commercial building has offensive graffiti on doors and windows and plywood/trash in windows and trash collects outside.
  • Wharton St Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    There is a house on the North side of Wharton street, one lot East of 9th that has been abandoned for years.

    The weeds in front of the house are about 2 feet high. The weeds and the stairway are a dumping ground for garbage mainly from customers of Pat's & Genos. It's utterly disgusting to have something like this right next to a major tourist draw.

    Recently windows have been broken and then boarded up. Rats are being attracted to the mess out side and are routinely seen running out from the stairway.

  • 606 Washington Ave Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    Dumpsters right on southwest corner of 6th & Wharton ALWAYS overflowing, never kept in their enclosure with doors closed, smells, litter everywhere. The Asian shopping mall owners always get cited, clean up for a day or two and then it's terrible again!
  • 1100 Washington Avenue Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    The Red Lounge (2nd floor of mini-mall at 11th and Washington) opened last weekend Nov 25 and there has been excessive noise (loud music with heavy bass) until 2-3am in the morning on both Friday and Saturday nights. I live a block away and can hear the reverberating bass clearly as I try to get to sleep.Called the police but the noise has not abated. Need to lessen the bass.
  • 1155 S. 8th Street Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    This property is on the corner of 8th and Federal Streets. This property is very large with a garage and could be a wonderful addition to the neighborhood if it were not vacant. This house too is in violation of the doors and windows law. It is a frequent target of graffiti, loitering, and trash.
