Blight and Vacancy at Two Corners of 12th & Spring Garden | NakedPhilly

At 12th & Spring Garden, the southwest corner features a property that looks positively awful, as our friend GroJLart wrote in the City Paper this spring (though we’ve hyperlinked his story, the link now curiously doesn’t work). It’s the site of a derelict former car repair shop that looks like it’s a Hollywood representation of a gas station after the bombs fell. It’s right across the street from the still-gorgeous Church of the Assumption, which continues to stand despite the probability of demolition in the name of development.
