Scenes for the movie “Creed” are filming in our neighborhood next week with the permission of the Philadelphia Film Office and the Philadelphia Police. Affected streets have received flyers, but we want to make sure everyone is aware of the upcoming parking restrictions.
The detailed parking restrictions are listed on the flyer linked here. The No Parking times will go into effect on Monday, February 16 at 6 pm and continue until Thursday, February 19 at 11 pm.
In recognition of this inconvenience, if you cannot find on-street parking elsewhere in the area, the film company has made arrangements for the lot on the northeast corner of Broad and Washington to be available. The entrance is on Washington Avenue just east of Broad Street. The lot is only available for use during the No Parking times stated above. After 11 pm on Thursday, February 19, the lot will be closed.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact the Locations Department at 267-507-9087. Thank you for your cooperation.
This month we will meet at Plaza Garibaldi (935 Washington Avenue) at 7 pm, Thursday, January 29!
Do you want to learn some Spanish? Would you like to meet Spanish-speaking neighbors and help them to learn English, while supporting a local Mexican restaurant and building community in Passyunk Square? We generally meet one Thursday evening each month at a local restaurant to socialize and chat. This event is open to everyone and is informal and fun. If you come, you can order food or not, and you will be made to feel welcome!
The holidays are coming to an end – wondering what to do with your Christmas tree? Don’t just toss it out – Treecycle it!
The Passyunk Square Civic Association, Lower Moyamensing Civic Association, Newbold Neighbors Association, and East Passyunk Crossing Civic Association and Town Watch have partnered to host a tree-chipping event to dispose of your live Christmas trees. Drop off your undecorated Christmas tree at Columbus Square Park at the corner of 13th and Reed streets on Saturday, January 10, 2015, between 10 am and 4 pm.
A $5 donation is requested to help pay for the chipping. By chipping the trees ourselves, we will get to keep the mulch for use in our parks!
By request from the community, the event is being held after January 6, “Little Christmas,” so hang on to your tree til then if you can!
