On my way to Ikea this morning, I snapped a pic of the buckling side wall of 5003 Penn Street, on the corner with Wakeling Street. There is a growing gap among the bricks running from the second floor window down to what was probably a very nice front door. And you might not be able to tell from the photo, but it’s begun to impressively bow out.
Philly’s Office of Property Assessment lists the owner as one Tamara Lauma-Kallman who is behind 31 thousand dollars in property tax dating back to 1993. Google Street View shows an impressive amount of overgrowth, probably during the summer.
I’ve reported the issue through SeeClickFix, which is monitored by Philly 311.
