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.

The Kettle Black (631 N. Second St.) in Northern Liberties makes its standard croissants with Amish butter and has an airy vegan version that has seriously whirling layers inside. The French-owned J’Aime in the Gayborhood (212 S. 12th St.) is also legit.
