  • 1 Highland Park Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    For the past several days, several times a day, there is a high-pitched, constant hum that can be heard throughout the neighborhood. It is especially loud near the Cambridge hospital, but doesn't seem to be coming from the hospital. I am not sure where it is coming from, but it affects the entire area. It is really, really aggravating because it can be easily heard indoors when our windows are open. I have recordings of it.
  • Inman Sq Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Wellington-Harrington

    I am going out for regular walks for exercise. It seems like as time goes by, I am seeing more and more people walking around without masks.
    I don't see many patrols of CPD, but I sure would appreciate more patrols and citations for people violating the mask mandate.

    As things are, it leaves people who care about their health (and their lives?) to their own devices to be protected from people who think rules don't apply to them. I don't think it's fair to put residents in a position to confront strangers about a Public Health Issue - doing such things can escalate and become dangerous, especially with people who think the rules don't apply to them! (think of the Amy Cooper debacle - people don't like being told what to do by other people).

    Please get more patrol cares out, and/or cops on bikes or on foot.

    Thank you.

  • 1-23 8th St Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - East Cambridge

    Two giant trees are obstructing the side walks on the odd side of 8th St. This video footage captured a senior with disability cannot use the sidewalk due to the tree obstruction so he has to walk on the street. It imposes both public safety issue because people with disability have to use the vehicle road.

    Both the 1996 Massachusetts Architectural Access Board (MAAB) regulations and the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design mandate a minimum width of 4 ft of unobstructed sidewalk passageway, exclusive of curb. Since both trees have left less than 4 ft for an unobstructed sidewalk, they shall be removed in accordance with MAAB and ADA.

  • Cambridge MA, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    There are far too many people not wearing masks in public. This is a non-negotiable rule for being out in public during this pandemic. If someone were flinging blood at passerby on the street corner the police would certainly be involved but when it comes to an invisible virus it's suddenly less of an issue? Please *immediately* have the police vigorously enforce this rule.

    Please post police officers in this area who will vigorously enforce masks for all people especially joggers who think the rules don't apply to them.
  • 1591 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    For at least the past few weeks there has been a continuous, high-pitched whining noise that persists for several hours at a time. Tonight it started at about 6 pm, and it's still happening at 10 pm. We can hear it clearly from inside our home, as can our neighbors. We've tried following the noise in the past, and it seems to be coming from the area around Spaulding Hospital.
  • Sennott Park Cambridge, MA, USA - The Port
    Fireworks (lots of them) shot off from vicinity of Sennott Park. This is an every night occurrence from there and other locations.
  • 187 Hampshire St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Wellington-Harrington
    Beauty's Pizza/Cinderalla's has large gatherings of people at night and on the weekends.
  • 433-449 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    an inordinately large group of people on the lawn who had set up corn hole. None had masks and they far from distant. I assume they are students coming in for the new year. It would be a shame if all the success in public health measures put in place are undone by groups like this.
  • 110 Pleasant St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    The construction crew renovating 110 Pleasant Street is not properly protecting the old sycamore tree on the property and seems to be trying to intentionally kill it. They didn't put up any real protection, they drive over its roots all the time, and they lean all kind of materials against it. They dug a big hole next to it (on the side that is not near the construction) to in order to bury a big chunk of old foundation so they wouldn't have to dispose of it properly. This is a beautiful old tree treasured by the neighborhood. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send someone from the city to evaluate the damage they've already done (to fine them?) and demand they properly protect this tree.
