Philly Housing Authority took their homes two years ago. They are still waiting to get paid

For example,  two vacant properties on the same block — 2426 and 2422 Bolton Street — were assessed by city assessors at $29,300 each in 2015. Both are vacant, three-story, 1,200-square foot homes. Yet, the housing authority paid $4,500 for 2422 Bolton and  $25,000 for 2426 Bolton.

For 1331 N. 23rd Street, the authority initially offered $18,000 to owner Angel Pinkett. He contested it with the Board of View and was awarded $38,000. The house’s assessed value is even higher — $43,600.

In June, 57 new housing units opened on the 2300 block of Jefferson Street, where the imploded high rises once stood. That was Phase 1 of the 10-phase project, funded through a tax credit for low-income housing.

    Philly Housing Authority took their homes two years ago. They are still waiting to get paid
    It's been two years since hundreds of residents were displaced and more than 1,300 properties were condemned through eminent domain to make way for a massive redevelopment of the Sharswood neighborhood and notorious Blumberg housing projects. Yet, only 10 percent of the 800 privately-owned properties seized have been paid for.

Sharswood: North Philly Peace Park Plans Community Expansion

That’s when Bradley found the North Philadelphia Peace Park. Located on Jefferson Street near 24th in the heart of Sharswood — and about five blocks from Bradley’s home — the park...

    Sharswood: North Philly Peace Park Plans Community Expansion
    About two and a half years ago, Bradley started to crave a more environmentally friendly way to spend her time - she wanted to grow her own food and show other people how to do it, too. She didn't think she could find a place to do that near her home in North Philadelphia beyond a few potted plants in her backyard.

Sharswood: Finding An ‘Anchor’ In A Changing Neighborhood

When Hall came home from jail about a year ago, he cried at the corner of 23rd and Oxford streets when he saw that his home was gone in person.

    Sharswood: Finding An 'Anchor' In A Changing Neighborhood
    Zafir Hall cried in front of 96 men he barely knew in jail as he watched his home be demolished on television. Hall, 22, grew up in the Norman Blumberg affordable housing complex in Sharswood, which was made up of three 18-story high-rise buildings. The towers were built in 1967 by the Philadelphia Housing Authority.
