3 tips so you don’t get burned

It’s National Safety Month. And to celebrate, each week in June we’ll share tips to help us all enjoy a safer summer in Queen Village.

Tip #1:  Attend a public safety meeting with our 3rd District Police Leaders.

Tip #2:   Have an outside security camera?  Join the Philly Police SafeCam Network.

Online registration takes only 10 minutes. Rest easier knowing you’ve done your part to help our Police protect you, your family and your neighbors.

Tip #3:  Throw a Block Party

The better you know your neighbors, the more likely you’ll look out for each other. Swap phone numbers. Tell someone when you’ll be on vacation. (Ask a neighbor to remove weekly circulars from your stoop:  they “advertise” that you’re not home.) So play it safe:  throw a block party, (here’s the application) and get knowsy with your neighbors!

So we’re curious — when is YOUR block’s party?

Watch out for the Yellow Jackets!

Sunday afternoons a team of QVNA Yellow Jackets attack curbside trash dropped by people as they walk from South Street.

As part of Queen Village Neighbors Association’s commitment to help keep our community clean and green, we invest in hiring curbside sweepers for the five major north-south streets from Bainbridge Street to Washington Avenue:  Front, 2nd, 3rd, 5th, and 6th.

South Street Headhouse District invests in in sweeping these same streets from Lombard to Bainbridge Street, all of 4th Street (Fabric Row) from Lombard to Washington, and South Street from Front to 11th Street. Thank you, SSHD!
