    Pools, frozen treats and the Shore: Guide to coping with Philly's heat and humidity
    The Philadelphia region is getting a taste of dangerous summer heat - but there are plenty of ways to stay cool. A combination of high temperatures and humidity made it feel hotter than 100 degrees Monday. While relief may be on the way, the dog days of summer are nowhere near over.

Hurry Up and Wait on the 700 Block of Carpenter Street

Hurry Up and Wait on the 700 Block of Carpenter Street

    Hurry Up and Wait on the 700 Block of Carpenter Street - OCF Realty
    As we told you previously, the same family that owned the home at 729 Carpenter St. also owned 739-41 Carpenter St., a double-wide vacant lot. Near neighbors know this property as the one that's used for parking from time to time and also has some signs that threateningly discourage allowing dogs to relieve themselves on the property.

    A Bella Vista loft that combines retro and contemporary aesthetics for a unique, 1000-square-foot space, recently listed for $369,900. The home is a lot of things-funky, colorful, bright, and even a little modern-but ordinary isn't one of them. It's a one-bed, one-bath apartment in a former high school and grade school building, which was repurposed into lofts in the mid 1980s.
