  • Essex St. Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem

    walk-up scam near Essex St.

    Petite brown-haired female in early twenties scamming passerby's asking for enough money to get a gallon of gas to get her home. She will ask for phone to call her 'mother' and speak with a 978 number for less than 2 minutes. She'll ask about using your AAA service and promises to pay you back any cash you can spare when her mother comes with her wallet. She comes off as innocent and sweet, very apologetic, just needs a few dollars but she's really scamming you.

  • 2-18 Gedney Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    These same cars seem to be parked in the 30 minute zone all day every day. Its very hard to find a parking spot now that's its October, Resident parking signs every where, Holyoke square is now restricted to Holyoke insurance and tour buses. How about putting in parking meters in those 30 minute spots on Gedney.
  • 23 E Collins St Salem MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    large amount of rubbish and bowls of food left out in yard. large uptick in rodents and nuisance wildlife in neighborhood.
  • 53 Butler Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    The sidewalk is blocked with 5 or 6 large potted flowers. It is illegal to block a sidewalk or park on a sidewalk. I dont know how they get away with it. Corner of butler st halfway up rawlins. If you park there they leave notes on your car.
  • Boardman St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I lined up all of my new trash and recycling carts this week. The trash was taken without incident. They took the recycling (which was right besides the trash) but left orange stickers saying my bins did not have a"2 ft space between carts/cars/phone/poll". The bins are suppose to be placed at the curb, there is no way I can get a 2ft space between the carts and the parked cars without putting the carts right in the middle of the sidewalk. Any suggestions on where we are suppose to put all of these totes so we have no issues with collection in the future? I did call WM and they said they would note my concern.
  • 68 Essex St Salem, MA 01970, USA - City of Salem
    This busy street has just one official crosswalk on this stretch of road, and the lines are very faint! It hasn't been painted in years. People cross here all the time to get to the common (including many children and dogs) and drivers whiz by very quickly. Please please please repaint the lines, and maybe add more for visibility (like the green paint that's in other crosswalks). Signage would also help.
  • 98 Collins Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    There's tons of broken glass strewn all over Collins Cove beach. Kids are going to get hurt in the sand. Is there a plan for the city to help with pick up? We're doing what we can. I don't want to see anyone get hurt.
  • 17 Mooney Rd Salem 01970, United States - City of Salem
    This entire street needs to be replaced.
  • 35 Flint Street #304 Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    The newly paved sections of Flint St do not dovetail smoothly into previously existing pavement, especially at the intersections. There is a serious crack and ridge at intersections of Flint with Bridge, Federal and Essex Streets. The one at Essex and Flint is particularly bad, and will cause damage to car tires and rims as it gets worse. I had assumed the problem would be rectified by now, but nothing has happened, so I'm thinking you're not aware of the problem.
  • 95 Washington St Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    Recently Salem announced free meals at all schools. Why? Many families are more than able to either send food or pay for their child's food at school. Taxes keep going up, we are also spending a large amount of money on parks even though very few people use them and maintenance is non existent. The new park on New Derby is crazy. No parking and no parent should want their child to ride a bike to that location. Who is paying for all this?
  • 53 Highland Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I am re-posting with the correct addresses, they are from 51 to 59 Highland st. again tonight I had to walk in the street! (I am Disabled with knee replacement in April, I can not run from and dodge cars when I am forced to walk in the street every night for years, All the cars here park on the sidewalk. They got ticketed once but still park "on the sidewalk so your forced to walk in the street! Its on the Salem side of Highland st. and it not like they don't have a driveway because they do! SPD needs to start ticketing these cars. I was nearly hit by a car trying to walk my dog in the street around all the cars on the sidewalk! Apparently the law does not apply to these people!) https://www.municode.com/library/ma/salem/codes/traffic?nodeId=SATRORSAMA_ARTVPA

  • City Wide Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    It appears the city wide paving will end in a few days leaving many streets unfinished with raised areas at the end of each street as well as driveways. Man holes on Jackson St are 4 inches below grade. City plows will get destroyed this winter as will many cars. This is a disgrace and someone should be held accountable. Why has the paving schedule of 4 weeks failed?
