After allegations of bed bugs and grift, city facility cuts ties with South Philly recovery house

Fifth Street and Oregon Avenue, where Louis Gay said he visited a Clean Days & Sober Nights recovery house that had bed bugs and roaches

This article has 1 other Philadelphia location (Show)

Living in North Philly, Gay still attends regular 12-step meetings at the Cecil B. Moore Recreation Center. He works at a cell phone store at Kensington and Allegheny avenues. He’s making ends meet — but the loss of recovery housing and a couple hundred dollars has weighed heavy.

    After allegations of bed bugs and grift, city facility cuts ties with South Philly recovery house
    Louis Gay had three months sober under his belt, and he needed a place to live. The 51-year-old West Philadelphia man spent a lifetime misusing alcohol before he entered treatment for addiction a few months ago.

About Pennsport

Hi Pennsport, My wife and I are looking to buy a home in the 400 block of Moore St. area. In our research, though, we've noticed that in the past month there have been 2 shootings near that area and at least 2 more within a 15 min walk. Up to May though it seems Pennsport was relatively quiet. Trulia lists the crime as low relative to Philadelphia and other sites also claim crime in the area isn't bad.

We'd like some insider thoughts; homes in Philadelphia are getting up there in price and if possible I'd like to avoid a costly mistake. I look forward to getting some inside perspective.

  • Steven Buller Beer Jesus

    You don’t have to worry, a vast majority of the shootings have to deal with street beefs, they also are HIGHLY LIKELY to be targeted crimes. The average joe doesn’t get involved in shootings.

  • I'm looking to sell my house on moyamensing closer to McKean. We haven't posted the house yet but if you are interested in let me know.
