Squeaky Wheel Residents Get Some Attention

4600 block of Griscom Street

The 4600 block of Griscom Street has its problems.

Donald Carlton, from the Managing Director’s Office, came out to do a tour of Griscom Street on April 11th. Raymond Gant, of the Ray of Hope Project, contacted him.

He took pictures and made a list of problems in the 4600 blocks of Griscom and Penn Streets. Along the walk around the block, several neighbors stopped to say that they too had called in some of the problems to 311. He said he will direct all the issues to the proper agencies of Streets, Licenses & Inspections, Philadelphia Water Department.

He seems to care about the problems the residents are dealing with. We discussed the car repair shop(Lacks Permit), the falling bricks from the old Circle Theater building, the sink holes on Griscom Street, the collapsed sidewalk on Griscom Street, the giant pot holes on Penn Street, the dumping on Arrott and Griscom Streets and the parking enforcement situation.
