  • 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???
  • Orange And Humphrey New Haven, CT 06511, USA - SOHU
    Once again it appears that FedEx is not concerned with training their drivers to follow basic traffic regulations. Also the lack of enforcement by the police is clearly encouraging drivers to brazenly disregard the safety of others in favor of their own convenience. This driver crossed the entire intersection on red while an NHPD car sat writing up a fender bender and did not even bat an eye.

    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 ?!
  • Humphrey St. New Haven, Connecticut - SOHU
    Humphrey Street from Whitney Ave to State Street has become an increasingly dangerous problem. Every year this street is left untouched for snow clearing to the curb. This year cars are continuing to park into the lanes of traffic making for the potential of a head on collision. If the rest of us residents have to shovel our parking spaces on other streets, these spaces should have to be shoveled too. In some spots near Orange St. there is literally less than 3 feet of lane for the East bound side. How are two cars and possibly a cyclist supposed to travel safely that way?
    I work on this street and MUST use it for travel. I fear every morning and evening that I will be hit head on and seriously injured or worse.
    The city will have a huge issue on their hands if a bad accident does happen and it's due to the lack of snow clearing or towing cars that impede traffic. It needs to be addressed immediately.
  • 650 Orange Street And 180 Edwards Street New Haven, Connecticut - Bishop-Hine
    The tree located between 2 driveways (behind 650 Orange St, next to 180 Edwards St) is HOLLOW. The snowplow hired by 173 Edwards st, with tremendous force, plows their driveway out, across Edwards Street and smashed the snow against this HOLLOW tree with such a tremendous force that it concerns these landlords - the tree is in grave danger from this repeated hi-speed plowing, that it may be forced over ant topple, damaging homes and garage!
  • 952 State Street New haven , CT - Bishop-Hine
    I've recently moved to the neighborhood but cannot always park in my resident lot because of people parking for Diesel Lounge. Glass beer cans are piling up outside on the weekends and the noise from Diesel gets out of control after 11pm even on weeknights.
  • 150 Bishop St. New Haven, CT - Bishop-Hine

    The intersection at Bishop and Orange needs a traffic light before someone gets killed there. I'm a careful driver and I've had close calls with pedestrians and I've seen other automobile drivers have close calls with pedestrians here as well.

    People drive up Bishop at excessive rates of speed (which is an issue unto itself) and they expect to zip through the intersection and someone is going to end up being mowed down here. It's just a matter of time.

    A traffic light with ped xing would greatly postpone that tragedy.

  • 126 Bishop Street New Haven, CT - Bishop-Hine
    This cat was wandering around the Bishop Street area for several days. He was tired and hungry and when the snow started falling we brought him in. He is clearly domesticated. please get in touch if you know this cat.
  • Corner Of Bishop And Orange Street. - Bishop-Hine
    Need one of those small signs to remind about state law. Cars are frequently zooming through zebra stripe pedestrian walkway at corner of orange and bishop, by Nica's. There are many close calls. I witnessed a taxi almost hitting a cyclist who stopped this morning.There are signs at the other intersections up the road, we need one here. Why not also do a clip on local news to educate drivers who clearly don't know the law.

  • East Rock New Haven, Connecticut - SOHU

    The walking situation in East Rock is ridiculous - this probably applies to a multiple of other neighborhoods but I live in East Rock and this is what I'm experiencing.

    To those who have cleared/salted/sanded their sidewalks - a HUGE thank you. To those who haven't: I'm completely not blaming you since you have no motivation. The city continues to complain about not having enough money to plow the roads (a whole 'nother issue itself) - Well guess what New Haven - THERE ARE PLENTY OF LANDOWNERS WHO HAVEN'T CLEARED THEIR SIDEWALKS AS PER CITY RULES: FINE THEM! This is the only way to get people to become responsible for their properties - give them incentive to clear their sidewalks. I have fallen THREE times in the last 1.5 weeks, and it wasn't for lack of proper shoes.

    The areas surrounding Humphrey street are impassable - I should've just worn ice skates this morning trying to walk down Orange st. Part of the problem of course are the mountain heaps of snow/ice on the sidewalks that are preventing draining of melting snow.

    Your citizens are @#$%, New Haven. Where the HECK are our tax dollars going? If you're hurting for money, start being freaking pro-active and enforce your own statutes - with all the fine money you'd get, maybe you could start doing something about the dang budget.

    -A concerned, upset citizen.

  • Bishop And Orange Streets New Haven, CT - Bishop-Hine
    High and wide mounds of snow at intersection with bus stops and significant pedestrian and vehicular traffic block sight lines. This is a very dangerous intersection for pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers. Snow piles must be removed for basic public safety.
