The current Sellers have been parking their vehicle behind their home on the sidewalk on the 2000 block of North Street. This has been the custom for a very long time and they have not received a parking violation. Many other homes on the North side of the 2000 block of Wallace Street have parking behind their homes, garage doors and gates to accommodate this parking on the deeded part of the property. This is a wonderful Spring Garden block with many many long time residences and large single family homes. The street and sidewalks are wide and there is permit parking on both sides of the street. This home is close to restaurants, shopping, museums, Kelly Drive, Parkway festivities, Fairmount Park, Universities, Center City and public transportation.
