  • Off Forrest St Malden, MA 02148 - Malden Ward 7
    Waite's Mount Park off Forrest St looks like Beirut or Baghdad, a total disgrace with graffiti on the granite rocks, tons of broken glass not too long ago this was a beautiful and much loved and used neighborhood park
  • Unsafe streets Acknowledged
    87 Boylston Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    I have complained about this before and we had a cruiser one day stop people. One day just doesn't do it. As a resident of this city I expect more. School is bnb in session and kids are everywhere and we still have cars flying down the street with not as much as slowing down at the stop sign. Can I buy my own speed bump and put it in the street? At least this way I can ensure the safety of the children in this neighborhood since our city doesn't care.
  • Massachusetts 60 Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    This sidewalk is closed but there is no effective detour when walking west, from Franklin Street (my home) towards the Malden Center train station. In fact, the sign stating the sidewalk is closed is only present in the other direction. And there is no safe way to cross Rt. 60 from Franklin Street to the point of the closure; a pedestrian-light is only present on the other side of the closure. Further, if I were to cross over Rt. 60 on my way home there would be no way to get back across after the detour, for the same reason. This morning I ended up walking right past a bunch of large construction equipment that was in use, and hoping that the operators saw me. Perhaps coning off that part of Rt. 60 so people could walk safely would be a better approach.
  • Harvard Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    I am waiting for my plumber to arrive to fix my toilet that broke when the rust came rushing through when you flushed the hydrants in ward 7 on Sunday. Can I look to the City for reimbursement of this bill. Also in order to clear the rust it was necessary for me to run the water non-stop for close to two hours. Can I look to the City for an adjustment on my water bill for this. Look forward to your response.

  • 33–41 Henry St Malden MA 02148, United States - Malden Ward 7
    From lower to higher Henry St, Cross St from past Ferry down to past Bryant, I have call everyday about a all black Dodge Charger. All day and night speeding all the streets and car is extremely loud. Also blares music. Sometimes a man, sometimes a woman. License plate is 8DZ469. The speed on the car is approximately 75 to 80 no exaggeration. They need to STOP these people. Someone or another car is going to be seriously hurt or killed! This is in need of immediate attention!!
  • RATS Archived
    Harvard St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7
    To my neighbor on Boylston Street (who unfortunately I do not know) who just posted 11 minutes ago showing the photo of the rat waiting to be picked up. I am so with you. Many of us have called, written, etc. I saw two in my back yard alive (and I don't even have a barrel let alone trash around) and one dead in front of my house on Harvard and one one the side of my house on Henry. Not to be graphic, but the dead ones lying there covered with flies. Very healthy. If it is the road construction that make National Grid put black boxes up and down the street. If nobody knows the exact reason, then we need the City to put black boxes up and down the streets the way they do in other cities at the same time to stop this problem. I have lived here over twenty years and I agree with you I have NEVER seen a rat. We need a neighborhood meeting with the City officials. This is out of control and every single day it is getting worse. I ask all the time for whoever is monitoring this page to leave it open for comments from other neighbors but you continually close it. Please leave it open. NOT SO WE CAN BEAT UP THE CITY OFFICIALS. Please leave it open in case someone has some input that will be helpful to a resolution or maybe someone has an idea what the problem is. What I am hoping is that the City will schedule a meeting and neighbors will see it on Seeclickfix so we can all attend. This is not a little problem and it is the whole neighborhood.
  • 87 Upham St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7
    87 Upham Street Malden, MA does not have any windows, nor does it have a chimney. The house is abandoned, rain pours through the house and garbage is everywhere, which encourages the already large population of neighborhood raccoons and possums to proliferate even more. I have more photos but can only upload one. Please do something about abandoned property!
  • 289-455 Cross St Malden, MA, 02148, USA - Malden Ward 7
    My father passed away on Oct 7, 2019 a 34 year veteran and was buried in the veterans section. His headstone has not been placed at his grave, so I called the funeral home in mid April 2020. The funeral home informed me that they would check because it usually takes 6 months for his stone to come in and the cemetery doesn’t install them until spring which both passed. The response I received was they are busy and working on it. In early May 2020 I called Forestdale cemetery to inquire and was told they were so busy they didn’t even have time to cut the grass. I was then promised that they would put it up before Memorial Day. On Saturday 5/23 evening low and behold no grave stone. I highly doubt Sunday or on the actual holiday anyone will be working. Totally unacceptable for a veteran or any family who paid to lay their love one to rest!

    Harvard And Henry Street Malden, Massachusetts - Malden Ward 7
    I have to list this problem as "other" because despite numerous telephone calls to numerous people I have yet been able to get an answer. Back in the spring National Grid replaced the gas lines on Harvard and Henry Street. Day before yesterday there were about six people from National Grid in front of my house and then later I noticed the streets were remarked as they did back in the Spring. Some of my neighbors and I were concerned as to whether there was a problem (especially since we believe the people National Grid Gas are using are not Gas employees but instead private contractors. IN any event, I called the City to see what was being done and I was told to call the Gas Company. I then spent over three hours trying to get a person at the Gas company. I had some ICKY SWEET woman tell me that she had no idea what they were doing but she could guarantee me that I was safe! She then gave me the number of a person to call to see what they were doing and was quick to tell me that he wouldn't call me back right away but eventually he would. I got his voice mail and he said he was in the field and could not call me back at all and gave me another number. I have called her three times and still nothing. I went back to calling the city and various departments have either not called me back or have told me they have no idea what they are doing but that they could only do emergency work. We now have orange barrels up and down the street and they are ripping up sidewalks and laying some sort of black pipe. Now this may have nothing to do with the Gas company, i guess it could be water? But for the love of God is there nobody that can just tell us what they are doing, how long will they be here, will they be here like last time for months, who is doing the work? I see some Charles Contracting trucks, don't know if they are private contractors for City or Gas Company? Is this such a difficult thing for someone to answer. Please don't refer me to a department that is not going to answer my question. Please just find the answer and post here so everyone can know. Thank you

    Nothing has been done about this for months. Who are the owners of this property?

    Constant cars and people pulling up in front of 28 Holyoke St to buy drugs. Loud noise, loud music, late night drinking and screaming continues. What are we waiting for another drive by shooting. We need to call the Mayor and see if he would put up with living next to this ...
