127 North Allen Street Catskill, New York
This intersection is absolutely frightening! Vehicles trying to turn left onto Route 23 west have very poor visibility. Plus vehicles coming down the hill on Route 23 are racing at approximately 70MPH and can't stop in time.
These 1930's-style on-ramps need to be redesigned to prevent senseless deaths from occurring here.
U.S. 9w Cementon, New York
Last night around 8:00PM, a locomotive with about 7-8 railroad cars was sitting, idling, with its nose approximately 1/4 of the way blocking Route 9W.
The crossing gates were down and were flashing.
Many motorists were waiting while the train sat there for approximately 15 minutes and wasn't moving.
Then, suddenly, a few impatient drivers began driving through the crossing gates while they were down and flashing!
It was a very dangerous situation, because all of a sudden the train began moving and somebody could have gotten killed here by the train smashing into them!
I think it should be mandatory that if this type of situation happens again, that a flagperson should be down on the street near the crossing, to take precedence over the crossing gates, in order to direct car traffic so that impatient drivers don't cause someone to get killed here!!
Rt 23a Haines Falls, New YorkThis is a popular sightseeing and hiking spot. The parking lot is about 1/4 mile from the falls and the trail head, and there is no walkway. The people have to walk down the roadway and down drainage ditches while avoiding cars on the steep curvy mountain road. They just rebuilt the western supporting wall of the road. It seems that they could suspend a walkway from the new barriers, creating a path for the visitors to get to the trail head and waterfalls safely.
1 Main St Catskill, NY 12414, USAI keep hearing a gun shot sound from across the river. It goes off almost every minute and can be heard from the RVP Bridge to the Point on the Catskill side. Does anyone know what this noise is? It is freaking out my dog, so much that I can't even walk him in Catskill. I has been going on for at least a week now.
U.S. 9 W Catskill, NY
There are numerous dead tree branches and trunks hanging on power lines all up and down US Route 9W all the way from Catskill to Saugerties!
The dead tree trunks and branches are laying on the powerlines after they have fallen down the hill at this location.
They are hanging directly over the roadway, and are going to fall on someone's vehicle and they will get KILLED when one falls through someone's WINDSHIELD!!!
155-198 U.S. 9w Catskill, NY
I frequently come through this intersection headed northbound, (usually between midnight and 2AM).
The light turns red even when there are no other cars at the intersection!
Please time this light correctly so it doesn't needlessly hold up cars on 9W when there aren't any other vehicles at the intersection!
