Traffic Signal / Pedestrian Signal ArchivedOlive Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square
Traffic signal at the intersection of Grand & Olive sometimes goes like this:
Olive St: / Grand Ave:
Red / Green
Cross Walk Signal
Red / Red
Red / Green
It takes forever for the light to change, and I think this can encourage speeding on a street that has dedicated itself to traffic calming. Not sure what gods control the timing of the traffic signal, but it seems like it has a bug - I've experienced this situation three times that I've noticed.
801 Whalley Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
Japanese knotweed has overtaken parts of the pedestrian walkway that quietly links Edgewood Park and West Rock park. The walkway entrance is to the right of Irving gas station, across the street from the Edgewood basketball court.
The trail can connect people from the Blake St area with downtown Westville / Edgewood Park. It also offers a cool link between West Rock and Edgewood. It doesn't seem like many people use it, maybe the city can make a cool sign to inform citizens.
801 Whalley Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - WestvilleThere is a pedestrian / bike path to the right of the Irving gas station on Whalley Avenue, across the street from the basketball court in Edgewood Park. It is a fantastic path that links Westville center with West Rock park via Amrhyn Field. It is currently overgrown by Japanese Knotweed. Can the city Parks department clean it up and highlight it with some signage? I bet it could be a useful cut-through for folks.
Peacock near Edgewood? Archived799-813 Elm Street New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood
I grew up near Brooksvale Park in Hamden, and there's a peacock that would make a distinctive, loud call every once in a while. I heard the unmistakable call this morning near Elm x Ellsworth, closer to Edgewood Park area I think.
Is there a peacock in the area? Anyone else hear this?
Overgrown Community Garden Archived70 Woolsey Street New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven
Woolsey Garden - A community garden on the corner of Woolsey and Lloyd St. is nearly inaccessible because of overgrown grass. City usually cuts the grass, but has not this year.
Also, trash on curb should be picked up by city.
