If bugging the city won’t make a sidewalk appear, maybe a piece of wood will do?


This said state of affairs appears outside a blighted property at 1345 Ellsworth St.

1345 ellsworth

Philadelinquency checked in on this property back in December and found that L&I has actually been working on getting the property back in decent condition since 2008, moving at that time to start sheriff sale proceedings.

L&I slapped the building owner with a “doors and windows” violation at the end of last year, which explains the new looking windows in the picture above. But now L&I says that Streets Department is responsible for replacing the sidewalk, PDQ said.

Hmm, that was in December. Not looking good…

    What’s connecting the two houses above the alley?

      Not sure, but I think it might have been a bay window from the house on the left that got extended.
