Dear Philly Bars: Watch Out for Aspen James

Police say he was stopped on the 1000 block of North Bodine Street inside a stolen vehicle. He was charged with receiving stolen property and unauthorized use of a vehicle and released on $1,500 bail.

    Dear Philly Bars: Watch Out for Aspen James
    Bartenders at three Philly watering holes say he ran up tabs this week and then didn't pay. It's been a while since we had a good tale of a person allegedly dining and dashing (or drinking and dashing) from Philly bars and restaurants. But lo and behold, we give you Aspen James.

TROUBLE INTERSECTIONS: A Meeting of Bad Driving and Increasing Poulation

2nd and Spring Garden

...others, however, believe more dangerous intersections could exist further north in more residential spots, like 4th and Green, where Poglar lives. Matt Ruben, president of the Northern Liberties Neighbors Association, noted 2nd and...

  “If I take a bus and get off at 5th Street … If I have to cross at 5th and Poplar, people don’t stop,” Gansky said. “They come close to sideswiping me.”

  All three spots have at least one busy street, but only East Norris and Frankford Avenue lies in a somewhat residential area. The other two are larger intersections, and more so a product of being near busy, wide thoroughfares.

  “Frankford and Girard is way busier,” said Jenna Vecchione, 27, a lifelong Fishtown resident. “With all the businesses, lights and cars, that [intersection] is more prone to accidents than down here.”

  Jon Yankelewitz lives right by the intersection, on the 1800 block of Frankford. He said he hasn’t seen any accidents there, and agreed with Vecchione that Frankford and Girard is a worse spot.

  Hans said this led to an accident at Susquehanna and Frankford about a year ago, involving a car and motorcycle. The car hit the motorcycle and caused considerable damage to it and a leg injury to the man riding it, he said.

Lehigh and Aramingo

  Emery Greenfield, 29, has lived on the 2600 block of Aramingo for about two years. He said it’s hard to even cross the street given the timing of the pedestrian signal, and that people speed through the intersection constantly.

    TROUBLE INTERSECTIONS: A Meeting of Bad Driving and Increasing Poulation - Spirit News
