2030 East York St Philadelphia, PA - Kensington
This issue was previously reported and the inspector came out but did not enter the residence.
Raw sewage is being pumped from the basement out on the street. Chunks of toilet paper can be see floating along the curb and the smell is horrible. This has been going on for months and reported several times. The gutter is now covered in a sheet of sewage ice. The residents typically pump it out in the evenings but often leave the hose on the sidewalk.
The inspector needs to gain entry and not just take the word of the resident.
Girard Ave/Richmond Street Philadelphia, PA - Kensington
What is the plot of land under I-95 at Girard and Richmond becoming?!!
This whole area is an eyesore! I think people disregard this space because they are focused on the curve of the road. Someone has brought mattresses and other pieces of furniture to the area.
Corner Of Cumberland And Amber Philadelphia, PA - Kensington
There is a fenced in vacant lot at the corner of Cumberland and Amber. One of the gates - on Amber St. side -- has been unlocked and there is a stream of people going in and taking advantage of the overgrown weeds and trees to do drugs. Trash is also being dumped in there.
2218 Hagert St Philadelphia, PA - Kensington
This house is a hot mess. There is a leak/stream of water coming from the back yard that's so powerful it's causing the side walk to cave in slightly in the front of the house.
Also, there is a huge pile of trash/rubble sitting in front yard behind a broken fence. I've seen rats scampering from the pile of trash/rubble into the holes on the side walk!
In addition, there is a constant stream of intoxicated people coming in and out of this house at all hours. I'm assuming the drug baggies all over the side walk are from said residents/visitors.
2468 Memphis St Philadelphia, PA 19125, USA - Kensington
Memphis Street has not been plowed, and especially between Firth Street and Letterly Street has several inches of packed ice. The rt. 25 bus got stuck yesterday. Cars are fishtailing and hitting parked cars even though the drivers are mostly being cautious. City refuses to block off.
Sepviva And Fletcher Philadelphia, PA - Kensington
This house was on See CLick Fix for a while and was boared-up by L&I (Thank you so much, BTW) The owners started work and then were shut down because the scope of work changed. They have not been back since and now kids have moved a mattress in there and are drinking and doing drugs in the house, again. Please fix this once and for all.
2503 Emerald Street Philadelphia, PA - Kensington
The alley light off of Emerald St, between E Cumberland St and E Firth St has been buzzing for many months. It appears to have exposed wireds & looks to have been tampered with as well. This could be a serious fire hazard since a lot of vines are growing near the light.
2600 Webb Street Philadelphia, PA - Kensington
Approx. 4am Friday May 18th, a minivan was dumped and set on fire at the end of 2600 Webb Street. It's assumed to be stolen as the tags were removed before the fire was set. The minivan is now a burnt shell and is still sitting at the end of the block with no promise of being removed. You have to go around it to turn on the block so it makes the whole block look trashy and dangerous.
