Ubinas: Philly braces for more gun violence as Memorial Day nears

Like many rec centers in the city, the one on the 5100 block of Parrish Street has had better times. The floor is missing more than a few tiles, the roof...

It was Easter weekend when the shots rang out, so plenty of people were around, kids included. A car came barreling down 50th and Parrish, stopped only by the concrete barriers near the playground - and then someone inside the car started shooting at a guy on the street.

Charlotte Murphy-Collins is sitting on her front porch around 49th Street and Westminster Avenue when I stop to talk. She won't give me her age, but eagerly says she once danced with the Manhattans.

    Ubinas: Philly braces for more gun violence as Memorial Day nears
    O UR NEIGHBORHOODS, our front porches, are staring down the barrel of a gun. Memorial Day weekend approaches, and so does the warm weather that usually brings increased gun violence.

    4600 Block of Sansom Street Getting More Crowded
    There's a section of the 4600 block of Sansom Street between 46th Street and Farragut Street that's been rather bleak for at least the last decade, probably going back many more years. A single building on the south side of the block has survived the passage of time, with two huge vacant lots on either side.
