It’s Been a Really Bad 24 Hours for Northern Liberties

The neighborhood has been plagued by violence and flooding

The Poor Man’s Venice. The residents in Northern Liberties must’ve accrued some really bad karma yesterday. Last night, two people were stabbed near 7th and Brown streets. One victim died from the injuries sustained in the attack and for several hours, police advised residents not to leave their homes. This morning, a water main broke at 5th and Thompson streets around 7 a.m.  NBC10 has released video of the area, which you can peep below. The impending snow is sure to cause additional problems. What’s next for Northern Liberties? Locusts? [NBC 10]
