  1. Shucks, next time you make it to Concord st. take a photo of the Silver Nissan that's been parked there for a month. Spoke to police about it a few times and they finally marked the tires last week. By this past Monday it should have been taken care but nope it's still there.

    But Cole, Great pictures.

  5. Whoever lives in front of that terrible mess on South 2nd Street should go to the borough council meeting and demand action. The borough doesn't care what goes on south of Locust Street.

    1. How hard is it , pull someone away from the money pit for 2 hours and put some cold patch there , this is so immature , just fix the damn thing, we can spend thousands on the money pit , so spend a hundred on the whole. grow up borough do your jobs, tax payers are paying you!
