  • 47 Cottage St Boston, MA 02128, USA - East Boston
    There are significant amounts of trash along Sumner and Cottage streets due to people not properly disposing their trash. People need to follow the rules and use trash cans. The city needs to clean the streets and sidewalks and begin policing
  • 624 Winthrop Avenue Beachmont Train Station, Revere, Massachusetts - East Boston

    The intersection in front of the Beachmont train station is very dangerous. One of the most serious problems is the traffic coming down Winthrop Avenue that wants to turn right onto Bennington St. They drive too fast through the intersection when the green light turn arrow is on, and still too fast without stopping when the green arrow is off. But the worst is when the walk sign is white for the people to cross. The traffic can't see the walk signs so the traffic proceeds through that turn without stopping and almost hits people trying to cross in front of the train station, and also people crossing from in front of Dunkin Donuts across Bennington St to the park on the corner. The cars can't see around the corner and drive too fast and there are people in the crosswalk.

    Can't we make the lights turn red & yellow to signal to the cars that people are crossing? Or at the least put up a sign in front of the T station that tells the traffic coming down Winthrop Ave to stop on red before turning?

    If my explanation isn't clear I would be happy to speak with someone on the phone or meet them at the train station to show them what the problem is.

    What is sad is around election time politicians come down to that corner to campaign and they must see the problem but no one has, as yet, addressed it. I hope it can be fixed now.

  • 175 Brooks Street Boston, Mass - East Boston
    I get a special food delivery every night. Someone started stealing my food bag. These are delivered later at night usually between 12 & 1 o'clock . Then I started chaining it to my lock box and delivery has key to take empty and leave new one. Now someone is cutting the plastic tag and taking food out of bag. This food delivery is very expensive and I am a disabled senior citizen. Do you have any suggestions. My door is directly on the street and as I said he comes rather late to stay up and change bags

    624 Winthrop Avenue Revere Massachusetts - East Boston

    I wrote about this issue in January 2016 with post #2181908. I am not sure if any progress has been made.

    Since we have a shopping mall on Furlong Drive it would be a great help to many people if the 119 bus could stop at Stop & Shop before it makes the Beachmont Loop. In a perfect world it would be nice if the 119 bus could stop at the Furlong Drive mall in both directions, but at the least stop on it's return to Beachmont to pick up people who have done their food shopping at Stop & Shop and are returning to their homes in Beachmont. It would be a great help for people who live in Beachmont when they are carrying home their groceries. Especially in the winter when the streets and sidewalks are covered in ice and snow. So anything that could be done on this is appreciated.

    Obviously, it would add a couple of minutes to the bus route and the route times would have to be adjusted but I think it is worth the effort. Thank you.

  • Corner Of Frankfort St & Porter St East Boston, MA - East Boston

  • Pothole Acknowledged
    4 Neptune Road east boston, Massachusetts - East Boston
    The street sector of 4 Neptune Road is a disaster!
    The road actually has these "bubbles" that makes it feel like your are "off roading" in the city! This has been like this for MANY years. I hope that this open issue will get this portion of the city repaired asap!
  • 49-79 Maverick Square Boston, Massachusetts - East Boston
    This DD coffee shop right next to Maverick train station has lately been an attraction to coffee lovers as well as to some people who stand there almost all day, bugging customers for change, cigarettes or whatever they can get off people...I have even seen someone trying to sell drugs to whoever coming in here... now, instead of (cops) coming over here and asking them to leave, which they will do and then come back in 15 minutes, why don't they just arrest them, so that they learn a lesson...
    Same logic d apply to the other hand of the case : if you can't arrest them for that, then don't even ask them to leave (10 times a day)...
  • 100-198 Bennington Street Revere, MA 02151, USA - East Boston

    1 Bennington Street revere ma, Revere, Massachusetts - East Boston
    Dunkin Donuts at this location along with the Broadway and Shirley Ave location have become havens for drug users. People are shooting heroin in front of customers. The owners of the Bennington Street Dunkin Donuts are downright hostile to the Beachmont community. Enough is enough. Clean up this dump!!
  • Sidewalk Archived
    77 Bennington Revere, Massachusetts - East Boston
    The sidewalk between 77 and 145 Bennington Streets has not been cleared (it never is). The property is empty lots, but someone owns it and should be responsible for clearing the sidewalk. It is dangerous walking on Bennington to get to and from Beachmont T stop.
