  • 19 - 21 Tilton Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell

    At 19 - 21 Tilton Street, the totes remain on the sidewalk 24/7. A full day after trash and recycle pick-up, the totes remain, as they will for. Ever. Every house on this small street has put away their totes except this house.

    We call on the city to issue a fine so that our little street will look as good as it can (minus street repairs).

    Thank you.

    Called the police, they said they'd "send someone out." That was 5 minutes ago. Why is this alarm not being stopped at this hour????

    Scantlebury Park New Haven, Connecticut - Monterey Place

    To the Parks Department for meticulously cleaning the litter at this park yesterday. It looked beautiful -- for a day. Some people partied hard at a picnic bench yesterday and left their mess. Although fair to say the trash bins were full.

    Can we copy some of East Rock Park's colorfully painted trash bins, exhorting people to "Pitch in" and "Keep Our Park Clean and Green?" How about some signage AT the picnic spots along the lines of "It's your park, help keep it clean." Also at the basketball court.

    Isn't it worth a try to appeal to the better nature of most people?

    The bottom rail is broken across the street from this address on the Farmington Canal Trail. Can someone fix or replace it?

    A New Haven Traffic and Parking employee, sitting in his city-owned automobile in front of my house casually threw a food wrapper out his open window onto the street. When I told him that he had dropped something, he opened the door, picked it up, and took off.

    Seriously? City workers with no respect for the city streets? What is wrong with people?!

    After a lovely meal at Barcelona on Friday evening, we pulled out of our parking spot here to go to the theater at Long Wharf. Backing up, my husband tapped the car behind him and turned to leave. Two New Haven police officers walking by stopped him and asked if he was going to check on the "damage" he caused to the other vehicle.

    He got out of the car (he's white so he wasn't afraid he'd be shot) to see about the "damage," of which there was zero.

    One of the punk cops told him he could have been arrested for leaving the scene of an accident. Knowing that any other response other than acquiescence could mean an evening ruined, my husband apologized.

    The offending officer walked away, muttering, "Be careful, dude."

    W.T.F? Have the police no better thing to worry about than bumpers touching? Bumpers were MADE for touching; hence, the term BUMPer.

    I only wish I could have given that testosterone-driven piece of crap cop a piece of my mind.

  • Tilton And Mansfield New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    The sign indicating Tilton Street is on the left side of Mansfield, unlike Compton and Woodland before it. It is difficult if not impossible to see. It's also really dirty and old. Can you please post a new sign or even the old sign on the utility pole across the street? Thanks.

    The crosswalk paint is barely visible and with traffic coming at us from three sides, it is dangerous. Please paint. And install stop signs at this intersections.

    Yesterday, I waited in vain for 20 minutes for the 1:02 to take me to an appointment downtown. Now running late, I hired an Uber. CT Transit responded to my online complaint and apologized, saying there had been a mechanical breakdown.

    Isn't there a way to alert passengers to such delays? I am lucky enough to be able to afford the occasional Uber if necessary and I was going to an appointment, not a job.

    But what about the many, many people who rely on public transportation to get them to their jobs? Who cannot afford an alternative and may be late and get fired?

    New Haven MUST develop reliable public transportation. In 2016, there has to be some kind of app that can be used to alert people to mechanical breakdowns!

  • 135 Whitney Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Yale University Campus

    Black Subaru station wagon with 129RJX plates came thisclose to hitting me on my bike this afternoon. Caught up to her at light at Sachem and she refused to roll down her window. I used my outside voice to let her know she has to leave 3 feet between us. As she passed me again, she blew her horn and left maybe 2 feet. Last seen heading west on Humphrey. Am filing police report.

    Watch out for this one!

    Impossible to pass without ducking way down and I'm only 5 feet tall. Please ask owners to trim back. Thanks.

    When is this property going to be finished? I see Eric Johnson is headed back. Wasn't he on the initial permit to rehab this building? Perhaps he can address this when he gets here in July? We are most concerned as we are planning to build a new house directly behind this building on Tilton. Thank you.

    This morning at 4:45 I was awakened by a male neighbor across the street hollering to someone in the street, "Yo, get outta here!" There followed the sound of a car off in the distance, perhaps the getaway driver? Thought y'all should know.

    Thought I read that by last November, the city would have GPS on its buses so that we can see where they are (like Uber). Has that happened? If so, where can I find the app and, if not, will it happen and when? Thanks!

    Several days ago (it just occurred to me to report this year), a white truck stopped outside our house and a woman got out and entered our property. I saw her grab a metal trellis that is laying against a chain link fence in our front yard. I rapped on the window and she replaced it. So, I guess metal collectors are on the loose in the East Rock.
