Parking

Is there anywhere in Philly to securely park a small 10" moving truck overnight?

  • From the sounds of it, you want to pay an indoor garage to do so. there are two in the 1500 block of Latimer that I know of, plenty of others in town too.

Second Super Wawa proposed near Delaware River waterfront, this time in Northern Liberties

The circumstances echo Blatstein’s proposal for a Super Wawa that’s also planned for land within the Central Delaware Overlay zoning district at Tasker Street and South Columbus Boulevard on part of a large tract where a Foxwoods casino once had been planned.

    Second Super Wawa proposed near Delaware River waterfront, this time in Northern Liberties
    While developer Bart Blatstein struggles to gain support for a Wawa convenience store with gas pumps in a zone where filling stations are prohibited on South Philadelphia's Delaware River waterfront, another land owner is pushing for a similar plan in a neighborhood to the north.
