“I don’t really see a problem since it wouldn’t be constructed in a densely populated area.”

Ryan Villagran,
Broad and Jackson streets

 

 

 

 

“For the creation of jobs and a rise in employment in the area it would be a good thing, but for the safety of the citizens it would not work.”

Joe DiNardo,
Snyder Avenue and South Iseminger Street

 

 

 

 

“I think it would be a good idea for the amount of revenue it would bring to the city.”

“Awfully oneside. None of these people live close enough to be effected. It's not about benefits to the City?? It's about how it will benefit SOuth Philadelphia. NAME good benefits that the STADIUMS have added to South Philly...more trash? more traffic?? more outside vistors, over 11 million a year??? WHAT other neighborhood would put up with that???.....someone has to wake up here about a bigger plan for South Philly!! Whats the big plan?? Make money for developers who come from out of state....come on pump us up people~that includes the Review. Don't be reactive be proactive.”
