  • Shell Station Archived
    147 Willow St New Haven, CT 06511 - East Rock
    This place was robbed again last night and a customer and clerk were shot. This is approximately the 90th time this gas station has been robbed (not exagerating). Is there any way for the city to step in and control the hours of operation here? Unfotunately as convenient as this location is for myself and others, it brings in the completely wrong element late at night.
  • Orange St New Haven, CT - SOHU
    Orange is still not plowed, residents followed parking ban for days, but the city has done its part. Parking continues to be a big issue. Will it get plowed,? Do we continue to follow the parking ban?
  • 758 State St. New Haven, CT 06511, USA - SOHU
    Cars frequently park in the no parking zone on State St. by the intersection with Bradley St., right in front of Cafe Goodfellas. This is a no parking zone for a good reason - cars parked there obstruct the view of drivers turning from Bradley onto State. In particular, at least several times a week I see a black Mercury SUV parked illegally in front of Cafe Goodfellas. I'm pretty sure this SUV belongs to the restaurant owner. He was parked illegally again today. When I asked him to move his car to a legal parking spot, explaining the visibility issue, his response was "Or what?" Way to be a good neighbor, Cafe Goodfellas! My question to the city: Can we get some more active parking enforcement in this area? I'd especially like to see some enforcement on evenings and weekends, when it seems like there is virtually no enforcement at all.
  • 289-301 Willow St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    Why isn't more being done to address the significant increase in crime to East Rock. My tax assessment jumped considerably and so did the crime in the neighborhood with so many posts about cars and houses being broken jnto. What is the City doing to address this other than throw another report on the pile? We need an action plan!
  • 99 Eagle Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Someone dumped a lot of household trash at the Eagle St entrance to Blake Field. Seems to have come from 459 Blatchley. The person there said he had hired someone to take away the trash. Didn't realize the guy would dump it in the park.
  • 762 State Street New Haven, Connecticut - SOHU

    Turning onto State St from Bradley St, is very dangerous. On top of this, the sight line is frequently obstructed by vehicles illegally standing in bus stop area. This is particularly concerning for residents of Bradley St, who have not alternative route for leaving their homes because it is a one way street.

    This issue could be alleviated by our proposed three-step plan. 1) Strictly enforce illegal standing in bus area 2) Eliminate existing parking 2 spots north on State St 3) partner with owners of restaurant to redesign outdoor seating area so as not to obstruct views of motorists 4) Consider traffic calming measures such as speed bump or speed table. This intervention could potentially be implemented at the existing pedestrian crosswalk on State and Eld Street.

  • 34 Nash Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Lawn Mower was stolen from my backyard, as well as 2 large packages that were delivered this morning. My backyard is hidden, with the exception of 48-50 Lawrence street tenants who are constantly a neighborhood nuisance.
  • English Drive New Haven, CT - East Rock
    Motorbikes continue to present an extraordinary danger to pedestrians and their children and cyclists by screaming up the closed road from English Drive to the summit of East Rock. On the evening of 8/7/12, for example, three motorbikes sped up that road around 7 p.m., imperiling many parents and their children, adults and their pets, and cyclists out for an evening stroll or ride on the closed road. Police are rarely visible at the park and a sense of lawlessness pervades the area, which is generally filthy. A firm presence is required at the pedestrian entrances on English drive and on Trowbridge, off of State Street.
  • Interstate 91 New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine
    This really had to stop. We planted these only 3 months ago.
  • Edwards Street New Haven, Connecticut - Bishop-Hine
    St. Joseph’s Catholic Church on Edwards Street blasts an ear-piercing recording that is nothing short of an utter nuisance ! This began about a year ago and they’ve continued with this blatant disregard for the community around. The recording is blared at such violently loud decibels that there’s nowhere in our home we can go to get away from it. And we’re not even on Edwards Street ! It doesn’t matter whether our windows are closed (during the winter time) or open (in summer); or if the blower on our oven is running (high or low); or if we’re playing music; never mind if we’re in our backyard; nothing we can do in our home abates this absolute nuisance. It starts at 8:15 a.m. or 8:45 a.m., whenever they will on Sunday mornings; then, again at noon and then again at 6:00 p.m., and it lasts from 6 to 10 minutes at a time—for how ever long they choose. And this is every single day ! We sit down to dinner at 6:00 p.m. only to be greeted by their brash cacophony. No one wants to hear this; no one needs to hear this ! None of the churches in downtown New Haven acts with such gross disregard for their communities with the pealing of their bells—and they’re in a commercial zone; we’re residential. We have 2 other churches in our immediate neighbourhood; as much as we hear them worship on Sundays, it's not at ear-crushing decibels. What are we supposed to do, sell the home we’ve lived in for years because this church fails to realise that it shares a community with people’s homes ?!
  • Parking Ban?? Archived
    East Rock New Haven, CT - East Rock
    I have just received a call that all parking on even sides of the streets is banned today. The addendum to this message is to stay off the streets if at all possible. What are we supposed to do with our cars, and why was this not on the city's website last night?
  • 42 Bishop St New Haven, CT - Bishop-Hine
    This house has a perpetual problem with garbage out front. Could the city please ride the landlord to be sure the front of the house is cleaned up???
