  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Eld St New Haven, CT 06511 - SOHU
    City Workers continue their longstanding efforts to destroy the trees in the East Rock neighborhood. Defying repeated complaints, city workers continue to regularly staple parking signs to trees, as if they were irrelevant to the quality of life (not to mention health) of New Haven residents. (Take a stroll down Eld and count the staples in each tree!!!) These workers had a party before the New Haven marathan, stapling up Grove as well. Trying to get the attention of public works on this issue is about as effective as writing postcards to the Bush adminstration.

  • Trash Archived
    55 Pearl Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - SOHU
    Do the trash/recycle collectors REALLY need to come at 5:30 in the morning? For a year now I have been ripped from my sleep by the obnoxiously loud trucks and the shouts of the workers. I can't stand it anymore.

  • Eld Street New Haven, CT - SOHU

    Given the current epidemic of package-from-doorstep theft in East Rock---we were hit today---I thought it might be useful to open a thread about possible steps. Barring any police assistance (child, please!), we're on our own.

    My suggestion: We all start leaving empty Amazon delivery boxes on our doorsteps. That would make it difficult for the thieves to identify which homes have a (real) package and those that are empty. It strikes me that the thieves want to move quickly; if we're adding lots of boxes, it slows them down, and it increases the chances that one of us will see them. If enough of us do this, it may make theft unprofitable since the thieves will faced with a higher chance of being caught and a higher chance of scoring an empty box. Any other ideas welcome, but I'll be putting out boxes in the morning and on random days thereafter.

  • Eld St New Haven, CT - SOHU

    What is UP with this?! Somebody new on the job? Street-sweeping "no parking" signs have been stapled to trees young and old all over this neighborhood and probably beyond. It's bad enough for the mature trees, but the young ones can't handle it.

    I honestly thought this issue had been hashed out and solved over the last couple of years. Way to undermine the hours of good work of neighbors and URI, guys.

    Will the city please send someone around to carefully remove the signs and staples from all the trees, asap? And please, please be extra gentle with the new trees.

  • 815 State Street New Haven, CT - SOHU
    The trees along the I-91 corridor and State Street were cut down by the DOT. Are they putting up a much needed SOUND BARRIER? If not, the trees are the only thing blocking the view of traffic and increasing traffic/truck noise and need to be replaced. Quality of life will be impaired...SOUND BARRIER for UPPER STATE STREET!!!
