  • 294 Whalley Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood
    During plowing in last years massive storms the parking curb stops in lot were displaced . Now cars parking in the lot constantly on sidewalk blocking path of pedestrians using city sidewalk.
    Getting poked if the face by lady trying to stay dry with embra because cars were blocking walk is not fun !
    Some one needs to address these simple issues!
  • Whalley And Ella Grass Blvd New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    Well, it used to be a can of spray paint, but now they're moving on up! Street gang calling themselves Blvd Boyz, having raked in enough money from drug and hooker sales, have designed and purchased their very own posters, and now they are plastering them all over. The telephone pole at this intersection is covered halfway up (must have been a short gang member) with their territorial pissings. I mean...postings.
  • 665 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06511 - Edgewood
    Tried crossing Whalley Ave. on marked crosswalk (stood in crosswalk, kept slowly inching my way into the road) at West Park Ave. and was passed by a horde of motorists. No one even thought about stopping. Also got trapped in the middle of the road when cars did not stop on the westbound side. I think a new traffic light is warranted here with a countdown-style walk light for the crosswalk. This would help slow traffic on this dangerous stretch of Whalley and allow people to cross safely. Also recommended is a bicycle-actuated signal, so cyclists can turn on to Whalley safely.
  • Whalley Ave And Ella Grasso Blvd New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood

    ANOTHER car accident at the intersection of Whalley Ave and Ella Grasso BLVD. I have lived here for over 10 years and there is an average of 1 car accident a week and I see at least 1 -2 near misses a day.

    The complaints on SEECLICKFIX, as well as multiple complaints to the city are NUMEROUS and go back YEARS.

    How much longer until someone gets killed here, and the city gets sued for millions of taxpayer dollars?

    If this gets closed before the intersection is fixed and turn signals are installed I'm just going to keep re-opening it.

    11 Brownell St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood
    Dangerous slide - there is a hole in one of the slides and covering the hole is a piece of plywood bolted to the slide. The slide is not roped off, however, so if a child (or adult) did not notice the plywood, the child would slide right into the plywood. This is a serious safety hazard.
  • 672-762 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    Reckless and regular use of dirtbikes and atvs in Edgewood Park, particularly in the afternoons/early evening. While jogging this afternoon at about 5:30 I was run off the road by a dirtbiker traveling at excessive speeds.

    The skatepark at Edgewood is awesome. It's used more and more every summer. Let's build some ramps and clean up the transitions. Vote for this issue or add a comment to stay in the loop.
  • Intersection Of Edgewood Avenu And Ella Grasso Blvd. New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    There is no pedestrian signal here to cross the Blvd. from Edgewood and it is a very busy road and intersection with people driving fast on it all the time. Edgewood Park is right there so a lot of children and adults with kids have to cross the road there to get to the park. Why are there crosswalk lights in parts of the city that are more well off than others? It drives me nuts and is a matter of time before someone gets hurt.
  • 540 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood

    Sunday afternoon, 8/27, there were several people riding dirtbikes and quads around Edgewood park, across the grass, and along the access road. They were traveling quite fast, doing wheelies and generally racing around. A number of the riders were masked.

    I wish these guys had a place where they could ride and enjoy off road sports safely. The streets of New Haven and Edgewood Park is simply not a safe option.

  • 310 Winthrop Ave. New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    There is a big dumpster behind this house with trash spilling out of it. Someone comes from other locations and adds to the trash. We think the owner of the house might own other properties and is consolidating refuse here. Dumpsters appear on a regular basis here. The trash is overflowing, looks terrible, is dangerous to local kids who might be tempted to explore, and we don't know what other problems all this trash can cause. We also wonder if this is a violation of regulations. We live here and hate to see the neighborhood looking like this.
