  • 764 Park St Hartford, CT 06106, USA - Frog Hollow

    The gymnasium part of St. Anne's has a fresh batch of graffiti on the side facing Park Street. There has long been some on it, but in recent days a significant more has been added. It's not the type of work that remotely fits into the category of art and should probably be removed.

    Somewhat related -- the gymnasium part of the building is somewhat of an eyesore, as there is just this swath of bleak concrete. Maybe the church could add some planters filled with flowers and plants to this side. It'd make the building look less vacant and probably less appealing as a target for vandals.

    update: as of January 2011 the graffiti is still present

  • Dog poop Acknowledged

    Dog owners should be reminded that they should pickup after their dogs after they poop. it is a city ordinance that they have to obey . it is nasty and unhealthy.city needs to do something about this .plus these people also do not have their dogs registered.dog warden should do his job.not just getting a paycheck from the city which is our tax dollars.when we call their office they do not answer the phone as if they were really busy . like doing what ? useless department .wasting our tax dollars doing nothing.
  • 1-39 Hawthorn Street Hartford, Connecticut - Asylum Hill

    Several months ago I reported that dangerous storm grates were being installed as part of the road construction associated with Fastrak station. It appears that the same style of grates continues to be installed. The grates have long slots parallel to the direction of travel and could cause a catastrophic bicycle crash. This style of storm grate has been phased out for obvious safety and liability reasons.

    Curious how the contractor has managed to not correct this issue, particularly with design standards and a previous SeeClickFix report. The CT Fastrak project is clearly intended to serve more than car drivers, and I would expect the road projects adjacent to the stations to have special attention paid to "Complete Streets" design tenets.

  • Noisy bird Archived
    2-98 Central Row Hartford, CT 06103, USA - Downtown

    Some kind of bird atop either the Old State House or an adjacent building spends several hours each afternoon squawking VERY loudly. It's nice to have wildlife coexisting with humanity and all that, but this is a bit much. I can hear the %#$@ thing clearly inside my office a block away.

    If it isn't an endangered species, can Animal Control kindly remove this territorial critter to a better habitat?
