Parking can sometimes seem as if it’s the only issue on the minds of South Philly residents. It’s usually been a problem when discussing new development projects, but now there’s a more holy reason for residents to complain.
For the upcoming papal visit, residents are preparing to “pray to the park gods” that the parking situation won’t be too disastrous.

Cars can drive in, but they can’t leave.
Residents are anticipating people driving in to see the pope will fill already crowded streets with few parking options.
“The parking already, you have to drive around to find a spot, period,” resident D’Quan Young said.
Councilman Kenyatta Johnson’s office covers more than a dozen neighborhoods in the 2nd district and they are receiving a lot of calls with similar concerns.
What are your plans for the weekend of the pope’s visit?
