560-642 Russell St New Haven, CTSaw this just reported on NHI:
Quad Driver Critical
A quad driver crashed into a tree Monday night and almost lost his life.
The driver, who’s around 20, was passing a car while driving his quad on Russell Street by Clifton in the Heights at around 6:14 p.m., according to Sgt. Anastasio. He smacked into a tree. He was taken to Yale-New Haven Hospital, where is reported in critical condition.
It is illegal to drive a quad in the streets. Police in neighborhoods like the Heights have had their hands full this summer chasing after dirt bikers and quad drivers.
I bet this is the guy I saw shortly before that pooping wheelies on a white quad, speeding on 1st Avenue. Can the NHPD please take this more seriously in our neighborhood, and can more neighbors call them when they see this? Next time it will be someone else, one of our law-abiding neighbors, that these scofflaws injure, or worse.· Reported by T · Flag Flagged
Front And Lombard Streets New Haven, CT 06513, USAThere is a very dangerous situation that needs to be fixed at the intersection of Lombard and Front Streets in Fair Haven just before the Quinnipiac River. In a car accident some months ago the barrier and fence in front of the river at the intersection were damaged; the sign indicating the end of Lombard Street is missing. Someone not familiaar with Front street could easily go into the river.
For safety and aesthetic reasons, the broken rusty fence with unsightly invasive plants and poison ivy along the Quinnipiac River in Dover Beach Park on Front Street also needs to be replaced. It is located between the new fence on the rebuilt seawall and the new fence at the foot of Lombard Street.· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged

The hill school looks abandoned. Are there plans to keep it a school or sell it? It is badly in need of maintenance. Crumbling brownstone wall, actively falling, broken rusty metal handrails, peeling maybe original lead paint, mold, 12" tall grass, broken asphalt and other trip hazards abound.
I would like to know what the timeline is for these repairs. Keeping or selling they must be done for the safety of the neighborhood.

Is this how all the roads get so damaged here? Brand new road surface has been left torn up after utility, gas or other company that needed to get under the road has finished their work and left the road in a much worse state than when they got there.
Speed bumps would work much better than new potholes on Quinnipiac av.
24 Hemingway St New Haven, CTThe yearly problem is back. The Brush, weeds and small trees seem to be worse then ever. You can not see pulling out of 1st Ave. to Hemingway street. The problem is from the mail box to 24 Hemingway st. to the corner of 1st Av.. A few of the neighbors are interested in helping keeping it down but the city needs to cut it back first.
Grand Ave. & Quinnipiac Ave. New Haven, CTPlease spread the word, meeting site to come shortly. We will be addressing various safety issues, so bring your concerns, and a neighbor, if possible.

Officer Hartmann will be attending this meeting. I will post an agenda as soon as possible as well. thanks, Larry.
20 Eastern St New Haven, CT 06513, USAthe road is in desperate need of paving, the section between 22 and 20 eastern st has a bad patch job and pot hole around man hole which causes the already speeding cars on the street to either swerve to avoid it or when they go over it, (especially large trucks) it rattles and creates a un bearable noise that we can't even have our window open in the summer time. This has been like this for at least 8 years. it's been reported several times and nothing has been done.· Reported by Anonymous · Flag Flagged
