Field Investigation Observations

Land Use

On-site Landuse
One apartment building sits on the site that may date back to the original tannery or another industrial enterprise. The majority of the site is covered in grass with major subsidence depressions.



Adjacent Landuse
The site is located on Quaker Hill, an area of row houses surrounding an old churchyard. Down the hill to the east area a number of commercial enterprises and vacant lots, some used for parking. A large number of area youth likely use the open space in the front of the site for recreation.


Presence of Children

No children were observed playing on the site, but the large grass area in front of the apartments is one of the largest open spaces in this residential area.


Exposed Soil

The majority of the site is covered in grass with major ground subsidence and collapsed areas that visibly expose bricks and debris. Subsidence/collapse areas appear to coincide with historical building outlines. The road into the parking area has subsided over 2' on one side.

Area covered in grass or mulch: 13858 Area of directly exposed soil: 120
