  • 25 Science Park New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Please post no parking signs to block 20-30 feet on each side of the driveway. This is a very blind exit that is extremely dangerous.
  • 68 Mansfield Street New Haven, ct - Dixwell
    Every week residents at Yale apartments at 68 Mansfield Street put their garbage out sloppily, not properly separating recycling, and just throwing bits of food and household trash on the ground. With last week's wind half of it ended up blown around the whole neighborhood. Yale needs to teach people who rent it's housing the rules for handling garbage.
  • Goffe Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell

    Along the entire 1.25 mile length of Goffe Street from Broadway Downtown to Osborn in Beaver Hills, only a dozen frequently used on-street parking spaces would need to removed in order to accommodate dedicate bike lanes along both sides of the street. The parking loss, however, would come to an area that has seen a large increase in off-street surface parking lots in recent years. Goffe Street, one of the oldest routes in New Haven dating back to the aboriginal habitation of the area, connects Downtown to Westville through the Dixwell and Beaver Hills neighborhoods. Dedicated bike lanes could help calm traffic, connect neighborhoods and schools, improve safety for all road users, encourage more active recreation in the area, and be included with targeted public and private investments in surrounding streetscapes - all with little to no impact on automotive facilities.

    With enough interest, this issue could be further studied by the City and potentially come to fruition as funding becomes available from State, Federal, and local sources.

    For more information on how dedicated bike lanes along Goffe Street might look, see here:

    Coming on Henry St. to Science Park this light is completely covered up by tree branches in need of trimming Very dangerous right now
  • 45 Woodland St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell

    Illegal use of rental apartments as AirBNB.

    This entrepreneur has set up a service, RERENT, where he handles Yale grad students' sub-rentals of their apartments, regardless of the fact that it almost always violates their rental contract, and turns the building into a de facto "tourist hotel", for which it has no operating permit.

    Last night at 10 PM, 3 AirBNB clients tried to force their way into my front door, thinking it was the AirBnB at 45 Woodland Street! The brilliant Yale entrepreneur, of course, was nowhere around. How about if I wanted to monetize HIS peace of mind and the sanctity of HIS home? Another brilliant market plan.

  • 235 Winchester Ave New Haven 06511, United States - Dixwell
    Dear LCI, The property at 235 Winchester Ave can only be described as a disaster. The front facade is crumbling and looks unstable as there is no building behind it. There’s a fence covered in tattered blue tarp. There are feral cats living in the rubble (although I love cats, so they’re cool). The owner, in my opinion, is an irresponsible owner and a bad neighbor. How would the owner (Kenny Hill?) like it if he lived next to what looks like a bombed out house from a war zone? For how long do the locals have to look at this eyesore? This is our neighborhood and it’s a real drag having to look at this every day. What can be done to hold the owner to account?
  • 87-105 Sachem Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Please bring back the STOP sign at corner of Winchester and Sachem. There is bicycle traffic entering and exiting the Farmington Canal Trail here, and the pedestrian crosswalk does not provide enough protection. Cars traveling from Winchester used to have to come to a full stop, now they barely slow down if there is no pedestrian in crosswalk. This creates unsafe conditions for bike cross-traffic.
  • Woodland Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    A number of residents have noticed that there is an increase in street drug sales on Woodland Street. Cars pull up and wait, and different people, usually on foot or bicycle, go up to them and complete the sale. We don't call the police, because there's not much they can do after the fact, but over the long term we hope they can do something.
  • 118 Mansfield Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    The homeowner who had the handicapped sign sold the house on 01/09/2018 (book and pg. no. 9666/ 307).
    How much time has to go by before the city removes the two screws that hold the handicapped sign on? This is the third notification. We need to be able to park!
  • 87-105 Sachem Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    A stop sign is desperately needed on Sachem at Winchester. There used to be a sign there, but it was removed before construction of the Yale colleges began. A few injuries have been reported at this corner, and a number of people have complained about the need for a stop sign on SCF for several years, but this has been ignored. No one understands why such an easy fix is so hard.
