Witnesses to after-hours jackhammering early morning July 16th

Did anyone in the vicinity of 19th and Bainbridge/Fitzwater and environs witness jackhammering beginning around 3 am the morning of July 16th or other street work being done around the same time July 17th? Though we clearly heard this, the streets department claims no work was being done at this time. If anyone happened to look out their window and see any trucks with the name of a contracting company on them, the Streets department says they can investigate the matter further. We're not holding our breath but figured it was worth a shot. Thanks!

  • You may have been hearing the work being done on South Broad Street.

  • PGW jackhammers at emergency gas leak sites at any hour. Was it them?
    You should check or maybe even ask them to stop.

Cell service?

I'm moving to the area and wondering if I'll need to switch cell providers... I'll be in a row house with original brick, not sure if Sprint will cut it! Anyone have service they actually like?

  • I moved back to Philadelphia a year ago and I kept my Sprint account and my cell phone works fine. Sprint offers a gadget called the "Wave" for free that can help if you are having any difficulty getting consistent connections.
