    Several potholes in this one block stretch.
  • 80-98 South Orange Street New Haven, CT 06519, USA - Hill
    Sidewalk plowing needed. Walking on highway exit ramp is the only current option.
  • 63 Clark Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - SOHU
    Burgundy SAAB 9000, CT license plate 638 ZDO (posting for someone else).
  • 40 Railroad Avenue Milford, CT 06460, USA - Milford
    Demand far exceeds the existing bike rack capacity. Bike parking should be covered & visible. Photos to follow.
  • Orange St And Elm St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Town_Green
    "Who But W. B. Mason"...would park a deliver truck like this?! Half the truck is blocking a narrow sidewalk, forcing pedestrians to alternate or change course. The other half is blocking a narrow, shoulder-less, one-lane roadway, forcing two-way traffic to alternate in the remaining 1.5 narrow lanes. Well done, @WBMasonCo!

    City trash can needs some attention. #garbage
  • 528 Orange St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    Police cruiser illegally parked in "No Standing Anytime" space. No apparent public safety issue, officer visiting P&M Market for food.

  • 61-83 Canner St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    Leaves and dirt will prevent this drain from working during the upcoming hurricane.
  • 740-744 Broadway New York, NY 10003, USA - Greenwich Village
    This hole could swallow a small child! Or at least the wheel of an unfortunate cyclist. This is an accident waiting to happen, please vote to fix.
  • 900 Frank E Rodgers Blvd S Harrison, NJ 07029, USA - Harrison

    Currently, only one side of Frank Rogers Blvd (West side, next to Southbound traffic) has an entrance to the PATH train station. As a result, after every soccer game at adjacent Red Bull Arena, there is a dangerous bottleneck of people funneling into a single stairway, for trains heading back to Manhattan. Furthermore, this situation is causing pedestrians to cross this high-traffic Blvd in between cross-walks, to get around the awkward attempts at crowd control (pedestrian corrals, etc).

    Having this additional entrance and stairway up to the elevated PATH train would help improve pedestrian safety on BOTH accounts.

  • 225 U.S. 1 New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Downtown

    Coming south on N. Frontage Rd, is it legal to drive straight (across State St.) at this intersection or not?! Judging from "right turn only" sign, curved median, and observed police activity, the answer is NO. Judging from the traffic signal and common driving practice, the answer is YES.

    Due to this confusion, I've witnessed several near-miss accidents here in the past few years. This needs to be fixed, one way or another.

    Have you heard about the crowd-funded cardboard bus bench in downtown New Haven?

    http://www.newhavenindependent.org/index.php/archives/entry/crowd-sourced_bus_bench_debuts/

    In just two weeks, it has seen round-the-clock daily use by hundreds and hundreds of bus riders. Due to this resounding success, we've decided to purchase a 2nd bench.

    We are now looking for:
    - 10 financial supporters who can donate $12.52 each via PayPal (http://bit.ly/ReVI5f), for the total of $125.20.
    - Non-financial supporters who can share this issue via Facebook and Twitter.

    Thank you for helping to improve the community!

    -Zack

    ps. These benches and other cardboard furniture are made locally (right up the street on Chapel) by New Haven's own Chairigami (http://www.chairigami.com).

    This pothole is of particular danger to cyclists, as it is just past the point on Orange St (Southbound) where the street narrows and bike lane disappears.

  • 746 Chapel St New Haven, CT 06510, USA - 770 Chapel Big
    Lacking a bus shelter, people waiting for the bus are now gathering in front of the two doors of 746 Chapel, creating a hazard. In the past two days, I've had two collisions, one of which resulted in having a hot cup of coffee spilled on me. Ouch! Let's get this fixed before someone really gets hurt.
