Ugly Sign Returns to Spring Garden

The ugly sign that is the old Park Grocery has been allowed to return to the neighborhood. The MoMoYo yogurt store has been closed due to a number of things that the city of philadelphia [deliberate lower case here] found the owner in fault. Because of this action by the city, an attractive display of colorful panels has been made to be removed by the city. The result of this is the return of the ugly Park Grocery sign to the corner of 20th and Brandywine. Message to the city: find another way to discipline the owner.

  • They are also pushing historic doors on residents that replace their doors. Only if you have been reported.
