  • 820-825 Alter Street Philadelphia, Pennsylvania - Passyunk Square
    There is a lot of new graffiti on garage doors and walls on this entire block of alter street. It is a small street south of Washington. Can it be removed? it makes this nice residential street look awful.
  • 1167-1197 Dickinson Street Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    A sink hole is forming at the south east corner of 12th and Dickinson.
  • 1141 East Passyunk Avenue Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    Christpher's Auto Parts uses the triangle at 8th & Passyunk as a private parking lot. Cars are often double and triple parked out into the street making it dangerous, if not impossible to cross the street. The cars are often parked in so tightly around the business that a person, let alone a baby carriage, can't get between them to get onto the sidewalk. Cars patronizing this business often park illegally at the entrance to the 700 block of Ellsworth, making it impossible to turn onto that block. They often totally block the entrance to Ellsworth. I have never seen a ticket, in many years, on any of these cars. Why do Center City businesses have to obey the law but not South Philly businesses? The Parking Authority could make a fortune if it spent some time south of Washinton Avenue.
  • 1601 S. Broad Street Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    This corner of Broad and Tasker is a constant mess. The property is owned by the city and I would think they would want to have someone sweep up daily. It would take 5 mins a day and make a huge difference.
  • 1139 S. 8th Street Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    No owners of property at 1139 S. 8th street deciding to build garage on Annin Street. I can't imagine this to be legal.
  • 1158 S. 8th St Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square
    Windows have fallen out of this property. L&I has been called a dozen times. Rear wall about to fall onto sidewalk. (Federal St side)
  • 1305 South Broad Street Philadelphia, PA 19112, USA - Passyunk Square
    Public Record and other vehicles parked here daily. Isn't this illegal?
  • 1335 Reed St Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Pothole
  • 1156 South 12th Street Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Tag "OCP" in white paint on wood telephone pole. In the past two weeks, a few of these in same paint color showed up.
  • 1298 Annin Street Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    On the Annin side of Butchie Alley, between 12th and 13th, tags on multiple wall types.
  • 1425 S 8th St Philadelphia, PA - Passyunk Square

    I was excited when the old cabinet maker's shop was purchased in 2007. I heard it was going to be converted to a single-family home, and the permits and construction that started shortly thereafter confirmed as much.

    Fast forward to November, 2011, and the permitted-work has not been completed on the property. Once or twice a year, some contractor or another is coming out and making some banging noise, but no visible progress is made.

    Certainly the original work permits have expired by now, but the facade still sports plywood. The rear door on S Franklin St is boarded up in violation of L&I's "doors and windows" regulations, and new sheathing that was installed several years ago is still exposed.

    I hesitated to file a complaint for a couple years, but going on 4 years is just getting ridiculous.

  • 1201 Ellsworth Street Philadelphia, PA 19147, USA - Passyunk Square
    Public eyesore and safety hazard- broken, damaged sidewalk needs to be replaced along this corner property. Parts of sidewalk are missing and the surface is uneven, cracked and in some cases missing entirely. This is a transit stop on the Rt 23 bus that runs down 12th street.
