  • Elizabeth Ann Drive cross street Clarendon & Mass Ave, New Haven, CT - Downtown
    A new street was put in during the Fall, but the curb is now below the black top. Last snow storm the plow took approximately 4-5ft of the front property. I've made several calls to the city, left message, and no one calls back. I've even been in contact with the Alderman. Can someone please comeout and put a sawhorse, cone, anything before the next snow fall so I don't have a muddy mess again. I totally understand that a curb cannot be put in until the weather is warmer, but my front lawn looks like a mud pit.
  • 603 East New Haven, CT - East Rock

    So far during the storm we have had a total of 10 cars either parked, abandoned, or stuck on East, State, and Mechanic. Yet I keep hearing countless complaints that X's street isn't being plowed, or Y's power is out, z cant get to work...etc...

    Please understand that anyone who tries to traverse these streets by car is only exacerbating the problem, I personally have seen far too many people have to turn around because the road ahead is blocked by either snow or another vehicle, yet everyone seems to believe they are entitled not only to have THEIR street plowed, but as soon as it is to be out and about getting stuck and clogging up the streets so that no one can get through, especially the plows and emergency vehicles that need to.

    Be patient, stay home if you can, and if you can't know where you are going and what roads are clear ahead of time. Every time someone gets stuck, they are blocking the way through for a plow that is very likely on its way to clear your path.

  • 270 Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
    Pack of ATVs terrorizing residents on Front Street as they try to dig out from the snow storm. Riding at residents, threatening them, pulling wheelies against traffic and blocking traffic.
  • SNOW RELATED Archived
    Grand Ave And Perkins St New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square
    the sidewalk surrounding the garden never seams to be shoveled or sanded after all these snow storms. it's now getting treacherous trying to get to bus stop because of the ice.
  • 360 State Street New Haven, Connecticut - 770 Chapel Big
    Fox news Channel 8 building has 4 flood lights which disturb my sleep. Unnecessarily bright and obtrusive.
  • 70-132 Linden Street New Haven, CT - East Rock
    Does anyone know what the plan is to start plowing the streets in the Eastrock neighborhood? I know this was a big storm, but I'm really surprised by how long it is taking the city to plow. It seems very little has been done in the past 24 hours.
  • 24 Mechanic St New Haven, CT - East Rock

    Two night ago someone broke into my VW Jetta. Nothing was missing. This afternoon it appears someone went into the car, left the lights on and took the drain plug for the oil.

    Please report any suspicious activity. Im guessing the time frame for the original break in was between 11 at night and 5am.

    Would be nice if the police would keep a closer eye on the neighborhood.

  • Snow Removal Archived
    22 Eld St New Haven, CT - SOHU
    I just saw the EOC's message that snow removal is complete. There were parking bans for the last week and Eld St has not had snow removal to go along with these bans. There are no new parking spots available and now more cars will need spots. While I understand the awesome force of nature that this storm was, I do not understand why all major arteries into town are cleared so that individuals who live in suburbs can now easily commute into New Haven and Yale, but those who live in New Haven are still struggling to find parking and have safe streets to navigate between these major arteries.

    Picture tells it all. You can see each storm layer like tree rings.
  • MIssing curbs Acknowledged
    142-193 East Rock Road New Haven, Connecticut - Prospect Hill
    Our block of East Rock Road was recently repaved. The new blacktop was layered on top of the old material, raising the level of the pavement to such an extent that there is no longer a curb along most of the block. In some parts of the block the strip of yard next to the street is lower than the street. Because of that, during storms, water pours from the street onto and across the strip of yard. Can something be done to give us curbs?
  • 710 Russell Street New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven Heights
    There is a completely dead tree over 60 feet tall hanging over my and my neighbor's house, at the bus stop at 710 Russell Street. We have called the city many times, and they even sent out a tree team last October, who said they would cut it down "tomorrow" and then never came back. Every time there is a storm (like there was last week), branches and chunks of the tree fall down on my roof and yard, not to mention anyone who's waiting at the bus stop. Please help!
