Here is a different take on trash picking, which happens alot around here!

    One local man finds treasure, and value, in trash
    One man's trash is another man's treasure and one local man doesn't just say it, he lives it. The stories Ogbonna Hagins tells can be troubling. "I was getting some shoes and some radios out of the trash, or what people call trash, and someone said something to me out the window," Hagins said.

Majority of houses in the neighbirhood are not required to have sprinklers. Just curious if anyone rehabbed their home and had sprinklers installed? Was is really expensive0?

    Fire sprinklers can protect homes, not just offices and hotels | Philadelphia Fire Department
    When Tara Mohr and her husband bought a rowhouse in Northern Liberties in 2014, they were merely looking for more space. But the property came with a potentially life-saving bonus: a home fire sprinkler system. Their residence is one of nearly 5,000 sprinklered one- and two-family dwellings in the city.
