Top Five August Stories in Chestnut Hill

A look back at the stories that caught our readers' eyes last month in Chestnut Hill.

August is a big month for vacations, and that shows in a lot of respects here in Chestnut Hill. A few businesses have talked about the slower weeks they have in late summer. Burglaries spiked a bit this month as well.

As all this is going on, here are the top five stories read in Chestnut Hill Patch over the month of August:

When Delphine Gallery was robbed at gunpoint, the police were quick to identify the vehicle used in fleeing the scene. A few days later, police were able to make a vehicle stop and apprehend several suspects in the Delphine robbery incident.

While police blotters are usually one of the most-read stories on Chestnut Hill Patch, this particular week's edition saw a $200 box of frozen meat being lifted from Tavern on the Hill. If you have any friends having an extra-delicious barbeque this Labor Day, eye them suspiciously.

A terrible way to start any weekend, five people spent a Friday night in the hospital after a train hit the safety barrier at Chestnut Hill West station.


Each week, Chestnut Hill Patch rounds up a list of homes, offices or businesses that were broken into the prior week. Twice this month, our burglary round-up made the top five.

One of the bigger stories to come out of License and Inspections, a new interactive map lets you search where building violations, construction permits, gun permit appeals, and more can be found on your block and in your neighborhood.
