  • 972 State St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine

    JP Demspeys is attracting motorcycles to the neighborhood that make it unliveable. This needs to stop and we need the police's help. There are three bike parked out front right now and I am waiting for an officer but I have not had luck w the police's help in the past.

    We need traffic stops for decibel meters on State Street.

    Water running from taps and faucets is brown. Problem apparently shared by others in East Rock .

    let me start off by saying i am in no way opening this issue to debate whether abortion should be legal or not, so please do not use this space to preach one way or the other.

    although i personally find the protesters at planned parenthood (and now often by the peabody museum) very offensive, i am reporting this issue on the basis of what is legally their right and what is not.

    when i protested the start of the iraq war, the group i was with was told by an officer that we are allowed to hold a sign. but that since we do not own the property we were standing on, we could not affix signs to posts, or lean them on trees, or lay them on the ground, etc.

    this is what the protesters are doing on edwards street and sometimes whitney. they spread at least ten posters on property that they do not own.

    i'd like some clarification on what their rights are, and if we can ask them to tone down their presence if they are not legally allowed to take over the block.

  • Humphrey St New Haven, CT - SOHU

    We have a beautiful tree canopy on Upper State Street but unfortunately it makes the busy restaurant corridor very dark at night.

    It would be really excellent to have a low level street lighting like other commercial districts in the City.

  • 597 Orange St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine
    a general problem throughout New Haven, but particularly bad on Orange in East Rock. sidewalks are for walking, roads are for cars and bicycles (not to mention there is a bike path on this road).
  • Humphrey Street Between State And Orange. - SOHU
    Loud motorcycles frequently speed down Humphrey Street, breaking both the speed limits and the municipal noise ordinance. Some are coming from the bars on State Street/Humphrey Street. Others are getting off I-91 and speed down Humphrey on their way downtown.
  • 103 Bishop St New Haven, CT 06511 - Bishop-Hine
    I often see, or hear, the big blue and white Yale school bus flying up Bishop Street with the pedal to the medal. The bus screams by, both in speed and sound, revving its engine flying up to Orange Street as if it was heading to YNHH with someone in labor. If a child or person who'd been drinking too much happened to wander into the road, ferget it! Two points for that driver. I tried to tell a cop who was parked on Bishop when I got home tonight, but no one was in the cruiser at the time. I think NHPD oughta park themselves with a speed detector and ticket whoever's racing up and down our streets.
  • Whitney Between Edwards And Trumbull - Bishop-Hine
    FedEx Ground Truck (didn't get lic.) followed cyclist closely from the light at Edwards then passed the cyclist at an unsafe distance. The truck and cyclist stopped at the red light at Bishop at 8:55 a.m. on 9/24. The truck driver proceeded to shout obscenities and threaten the cyclist. The driver said,"There's no bike way here, show me where there's a bike way on this street." He also told the cyclist, "Damn right you don't have a right on the road with all this traffic." The driver also attempted to pull his truck over in a driveway just before Trumbull but was prevented by traffic he pulled the truck over immediately after Trumbull, but the cyclist wisely turned up Trumbull and avoided further confrontation.
  • Orange St And Bishop St Intersection New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine
    It's very hard to see whether or not cars are coming up and down Orange St when trying to cross from one side of Bishop to the other. Is there potential to have a traffic light put here?
  • 648-652 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut - Bishop-Hine
    I thought I got a city communication saying that street sweeping was supposed to take place THROUGHOUT East Rock over the last couple of weeks. The Orange Street bike lane (heading south or "inbound") between ~Edwards Street and ~Humphrey Street is a mess: it is full of sand and gravel and is in immediate need of a cleaning. It is currently dangerous to ride on! Please escalate the street sweeping schedule here.Thank you.
  • 611 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut - Bishop-Hine

    It appears the folks at Nicas are clearing a path from their parking lot behind the house on the corner of Bishop and Orange, to put in a connecting driveway onto Bishop Street. If you look closely, you can see the chalk marks on the ground where they are planning the driveway.

    Is this even legal? I am very concerned about this. The owners at Nicas have historically not shown a great deal of concern about following the law - whether it be the number of outdoor seats allowed, zoning issues, parking lot issues, garbage issues etc.. Nor have they concerned themselves much about the danger their persistently illegally parked supply trucks present to the public (driving OR walking). IN short, they cannot be trusted to take public safety and public good into consideration when making changes.

    I hate to think the effect such a driveway would have on the increased traffic to the neighborhood.

    Zoning - please step in here. Surely these people must be breaking a half-dozen zoning codes.

  • 215 Edwards St New Haven, CT 06511 - Bishop-Hine
    This intersection needs a crosswalk over Edwards Street- apparently one existed here up to about a decade or so ago, when the street was repaved.
