    are there updates on 1 Leverington?
    I am right now watching at least 3 oversize load truck move into the lot. They are wrapped up, but look like they might be trailer offices like you might see on a construction site. Did i miss something?

    alternately, is someone is moving in? the trucks are from Modular Home Manufacturer - Ritz-Craft Homes - PA, NY, NC, MI, NJ, Maine, ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, OH, MD, VA, DE, Indiana, IN, IL, WI, WV, MO, TN, SC, GA, RI, KY, MS, AL, LA, Ontario

    maybe they are just temporarily storing these modular homes here? there are always rental truck that just park there.

    Haven't seen them yet, but I bet they're the modular homes that are dropping next week at Wright and Silverwood.

    update - now that the Asplundh trucks have moved to the other side of Venice Lofts, the neducsin property seems to be evolving into a thriving squatter community. I had the pleasure of listening to the screams and shouts of "Brian" and "Retard" this morning as he kicked her out of what i think was his broken down truck ( i couldn't see his site because of trees in the way, but she left, up onto the bridge a few times to shout from the relative safety there). The woman reportedly screamed that someone should call the police (which i did....twice) because he was going to hurt her. She called him a drug dealer and said he was losing his clients because he robbed a woman and also because people dont like the way he treats her, and said he burnt her tent down. I would also like to "thank" the police who came twice, but left quickly each time to let the people stay illegally on the land and to continue to threaten each other loudly with bodily harm. What a clusterf*ck.

    What do u expect...its the 5th District. They don't do anything,except write tickets because of their quota!!
    With the "Drug-Dealing at Peck Millers area along with Ridge Ave" The old-new Drug den at 558 Fountain St. Our 'USELESS" councilman,Curtis Jones doesn't care about anything in the Rox-Manayunk area(he cares only about his OWN area),and Pam Delisso(or DO LESS SO) only cares about pleasing her "real votors" Montgomery County. I'm sure their are other DRUG-DEALING ares I don't know about, now we have a new one in Manayunk!! Thanks 5th District,Pam Do Less,and Curtis(I don't care the the white areas)Jones!!

    Great site for squatting!
    1. Picturesque area - derelict property is relatively private but still close to civilization
    2. Proximity to the highway so it's easy for you and your dog to panhandle at the offramps.
    3. Main Street and the Canal offer all sorts of "treasures" that may have been left behind or dropped
    4. Restaurant dumpsters - score!
    5. Plenty of dealers around if substance abuse is your thing

    The fun continues. Had to call 911 at 4.30 am today because of the renewed screaming and, in fact, i thought i had been awakened by gun shots. After speaking with a neighbor who saw "Brian" walking around waving a 2x4, i now believe he was bashing his truck or some other metal with it. Cops came, shined a light around for < 90 seconds and departed, since all was quite by the time they showed. The show started up again at 6.30 am. At this point my neighbors must have called the police as i ran into an office driving down the street. As with another office who i talked to the other day, he had zero interest in discussing what was happening.
    me: they are threatening to kill each other
    cop: well that would solve your problem
    me: yeah but i dont want a bullet to come through my window
    cop: lets hope not
    cop: where are they?
    me: (not believing he doesn't know): in the lot across the way
    cop: they gave me the wrong address, they gave me this address
    cop (interrupting): yeah i know....pulls away without letting me finish
    so, yeah, d*ck you know exactly who what and where

    update! as i was hitting send on that last message, my building manager called me as i had been emailing with them today. They spoke with Neducsin and the police and apparently if they arent out by tomorrow morning, they will be arrested. They were given time to get there shit together. Sorry, get their shit out. They will never have their shit together

    Is that the woman who has been panhandling at the Belmont Ave. offramps? I saw her this past weekend when I got off the Schuylkill eastbound, waiting to turn left to go over the bridge. I didn't notice her at first -- it was the dog that caught my attention.

    There's been a rotating cast of gutter punks doing the off ramp panhandling thing these days. One can only hope that the coming winter pushes them elsewhere.

    No. They'll just join the existing rotating cast of gutter punks who hassle riders on the El where it's nice and warm.

    Yes, the woman I saw looks to be in her 20s, and had a dog.

    updates! Brian moved back earlier this week with: a livable trailer, a secondary storage trailer....and a frigging boat.
    4:30 am weds morning, woke to screaming. Watched brian get violent with the woman, grabbing her head, then pushing her to the ground and getting on top of her twice. Called 911, cops came and Brian walked right out while they were there and they couldnt here me yelling to them where he was because of the distance and window design. I cant get down there very quickly because there isnt a direct route.
    Once again, put pressure on Venice Lofts to work with the police and Neducisn to resolve.
    As of 12:40 Friday, looks like they are preparing to tow everything out of there. Hope its not just around the bulding near the paper plant!

    true that. they put it out, i was hoping they would let it burn to the ground. Anyway, i had a front row seat, but it ended my spring cleaning day since i couldnt leave to get more supplies!
    Also, anyone know if the people operating that as a parking lot during festivals are a rogue operation? Always looks like the cops eventually come and they stop charging. Including today when it appeared (couldn't hear anything) that the cops might have bee explaining to people that they shouldnt park there, but let them anyway
    Of course, then it became a loooong, dry tailgate party since no can can leave.

    and....its on fire again!!! Why is Neducsin not being levied huge fines and or spending time in jail at this point. A fireman was injured last time. Probably will be again today. What before was open access to the site (Allowing squatters to create a mobile empire with outbuildings and a boat) is now blocked by concrete barriers.. Plus a back hoe that has flat tires, the buckets and stabilizers down, and its front bucket up against a telephone pool - so cant be moved.

    This f*cking guy. At least he doesnt have to see any of this!
