  • Essex Street Salem, MA - City of Salem
    Last night, Wednesday, June 13, the new hotel in the pedestrian mall had music playing and people partying on their rooftop. The music didn't stop until 11:30 and the guests didn't leave until 11:50. Then the cleanup lasted another hour. There are many residents that live in the immediate area that are already forced to tolerate the weekend bar closings and subsequent mob of drunks at 1:00 am, and we are now expected to tolerate being kept awake EVERY night until 1:00 am? How is this fair to residents? Who should we bring this issue to?
  • 1 Church Street Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
  • 324 Derby St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I am a tourist from out of state. My family of six parked our van at this parking meter (refer to address) and put what change we had in the meter which did not except credit cards because evidently you're a little behind the times.. the store in fornt of the meter would not provide us with change for the meter so we had to "limp" as i have a bad leg injury to the closest busines that would provide change. this was also a good opportunity to go on a tour since one was starting at that moment. after the tour we were 8 minutes shy of refilling the meter. if your going to force people to run around looking for change this day in age at least give them time! would not recommend anyone visit Salem MA in big part because it's not tourist friendly!
  • Intersection Of Bridge & Washington Streets Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Increasingly people in the right lane of Bridge Street (at the Washington Street intersection) are forcing their way into the left lane after the light when they realize in the right lane you can only take the "onramp" to 114/North Street. Most are probably from out of town and don't know the roadways here, but this is getting to be very dangerous. I have witnessed many close calls in this area and wonder if the city could paint lane lines or put "right lane for right turns" only signs up to help make this intersection safer? It is becoming a free for all in this area and seems to be getting worse. Thank you!
  • Witch City Mall City of Salem, MA - City of Salem
    For years the bathrooms at the mall have been truly unsafe. As more wonderful businesses find their way into the mall, the bathrooms have only become more of a health issue. Absolutely terrifying. Feces and urine on floors and walls, burned toilet seats, no soap, and the smell, it’s a cesspool if bacteria. How have we allowed this?

  • 98 North Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    My neighbors and I in the area of North St and Mason have been going back and forth with the Electrical Dept. over a repeatedly failing traffic and pedestrian walk signal. This signal has failed countless times over the past year, and every time it happens it creates a hazard to pedestrians and drivers in the area. It is reported, allegedly fixed, and the issue gets closed only for it to fail again the very next day. Meanwhile, we've had traffic accidents and near misses in the area because of it, and potential hazards to pedestrians crossing to go to the T station or the nearby daycare. This is a hazard and an embarrassment and needs to be taken seriously before someone gets hurt or killed.
  • Endicott St And Prescott St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    What on earth is going on right now with this new traffic sign for Endicott? What a mess this has caused, with traffic backed up in all directions! You go past it and to Prescott and that is blocked now too! I hope this is not the city's idea to push everyone down Summer! That street is far more narrow than Endicott is, and makes it very dangerous for anyone that needs to go down Prescott. Summer is on an incline at that intersection, and cars at the end block the views around corners. Have seen children nearly hit as people try to turn down Prescott off of Summer. I hope this is part of some paving thing because this is a terrible setup for the city right now!
  • Washington Square West Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I cross in the crosswalk in from the Salem Common near the Hawthorne Hotel. I was just nearly hit this morning by a landscaping truck coming around the bend from the direction of the Bertram House. Drive was going way way to fast and if I had not jumped back he would most definitely have hit me. This guy was just after the yound girl who also blew through the crosswalk and was on her cell phone. I walk that way every morning and that crosswalk is terrifying. People pay zero attention to the fact that it's a crosswalk-no concept of slowing down or yielding to a pedestrian. Somebody is going to get killed. Working hard to make sure it's not me.
  • 2 Brown Street City of Salem, MA - City of Salem
    There currently is no crosswalk anywhere along Brown Street, so pedestrians are forced to cross anywhere they feel like it. At the Common end of Brown, the only crosswalk is in front of the Conant statue, but because of the statue for someone to use the crosswalk to cross Brown you have to walk all the way in front of the Witch Museum, which doesn't make sense because it's so far out of the way. There currently is no way to cross Brown safely, especially if you want to use the John Ward House alley to go to the PEM, or to go to the parking garage or visitor center on New Liberty St.
    Putting a crosswalk at Kimball Court would allow for easy tourist and resident crossing, especially to go to the Common. Putting a crosswalk at New Liberty St would allow for easy tourist and resident crossing as well, especially to the Essex Pedestrial Mall.

  • Essex St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Very disappointed to visit Salem on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend and find that the beautiful stone water fountain outside the Peabody Essex Museum was not in operation. Instead we found an eyesore! We had planned to spend more time there and our visit was over when we found a littered attraction . Come on Salem..step up to the plate and make this beautiful again!
  • 56 Forrester Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    First floor tenants sell and grow marijuana at 56 Forrester St. Several neighbors have noticed this happening throughout the day as well as overwhelming aroma of marijuana. Blacked out windows bags of soil being delivered and brought into basement and AC system for basement im sure not permitted installed. Lots of questionable characters lurking around the property . We have children and now don’t let them ride there bikes in the church parking lot next to that house which is sad because when I grew up here we did that.
