373 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, CT 06511, USA - EdgewoodPublic nuisance report number three:
We arrived home about an hour ago to find this week's party well underway! Half a dozen cars on the Edgewood mall. Music blasting in the back yards. I hesitate to call the police because last party they did not show up until 2 AM! Fat lot of good that does.
379 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, CT - EdgewoodOn Tuesday the people in this house held a large, noisy, outdoor party. The music blasted till 10:00p, their cars were double-parked along the whole block, and next morning the sidewalk was littered with trash and garbage. Wednesday night exactly the same obnoxious behavior. Last night, ANOTHER party with music blasting from after lunch to midnight. Right now they're setting up for another gathering. I called the police each night but the noise picked up as soon as they were gone. And the police have more to worry about than quality of life. What can we do to stop this assault on the peace and quiet of the neighborhood?

This a project for Be The Change in NHV. In our project, we will build on what we have accomplished over the last four years in Monitor Square. The first component of our project aims to improve accessibility to Monitor Square. Currently there is only a single entrance to the park, and it is a narrow gap in the railing at Chapel and Winthrop (see photo).
We feel that a single, small entrance discourages people from using the park. We would like to double the width of this entrance and to create a second entrance at Derby and Winthrop. We will also create a transition from the sidewalk to the grass by installing a bed of pavers at each entrance. These three changes—doubling the width of the existing entrance, adding a second entrance, and installing the transitions—will make the park more enticing and encourage people to use it. Whereas the current entrance, narrow and unadorned, works to keep people out of the park, the new, welcoming entrances will invite people to cross the street and enter into and enjoy the park. The resulting increased use of this public space will make the neighborhood safer and more vibrant.
The other component of our project focuses on the centerpiece of Monitor Square, a monument topped by a statue of an eagle. This eagle is dramatic to behold, with wings spread, talons raised, and head staring down (see photos). (We think it is the most amazing sculpture in any park in New Haven, but we may be slightly biased.)
At nighttime, this great New Haven asset loses its value because it is all but invisible in the unlit park, and we would like to correct this by lighting the sculpture up from below. The site of the eagle lit up against the nighttime sky will be eye-catching for both pedestrians in the neighborhood and drivers heading west on Chapel or Derby.
Monitor Square is a nicely scaled public space, about one-third of an acre, situated on thoroughfares that connect downtown with the western side of the city. It sits at the intersection of three neighborhoods—West River, Edgewood, and Dwight—and is bordered by Chapel Street, Derby Avenue, and Winthrop Avenue (see photo).
The story of our work in Monitor Square is part of the larger story of our work to improve the West River neighborhood. In 2008 the Community Foundation chose West River as a site for its Neighborhood of Choice program, and under the guidance of Kevin Ewing, ordinary residents began to come together, get to know one another, and explore ways to improve the neighborhood. At the very start of this effort, Monitor Square was the site of a tragic murder. On the evening of Sunday, June 29, shortly after midnight, 53-year-old Antoinette Joyner was struck and killed by a stray bullet as she sat on a porch overlooking Monitor Square petting a cat. This was one of the key reasons we decided that improving Monitor Square should be part of our efforts to improve West River.
In 2009 we successfully applied to have Monitor Square designated a Community Greenspace site by Urban Resources Initiative. We have just completed our fourth season as a Community Greenspace site, and over the course of those four summers we have transformed Monitor Square. We have built two flowerbeds, one at the corner of Chapel and Derby and the other around the monument in the center of the park. We have planted seven trees within Monitor Square and another seven on the curb strip around it. In the past two years, our efforts have spilled out to the surrounding blocks. There are ten new trees on curb strips across the street from Monitor Square, and last year we built a flowerbed in front of an adjoining apartment building. We’ve even extended our efforts to a site three blocks away, at the corner of Derby Avenue and Ella T. Grasso Boulevard. There we removed a huge stand of weeds, planted five trees, and built a flowerbed around a sign that welcomes people to New Haven.
This project is looking to raise $10,000 in 60 days from 500 neighbors: http://bit.ly/OoT9YG

Chapel St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - EdgewoodThere are multiples cars that park in front of Chapel ST that are registered out of state. They all have lived at this address for over a year and are not students. The tax collector needs to investigate these cars. I was going to post photos of the cars and plates but I wasnt sure if it was an invasion of privacy. Let me know and I'll post some if allowed.
Edgewood Ave. & Ellsworth Ave. New Haven, CT - EdgewoodThere is a row of trees on the front lawn of this corner house that when you are at that corner on Ellsworth trying to cross Edgewood Ave., you cannot see if cars, motorcycles or bicycles are coming. You have made other owners trim or take down trees that are blocking the sight of view for others traveling. Please fix as accidents will happen or have happened with the way it is now. Thank you.

A family on my block allows their three young children (between the ages of 6 and 12) practically free reign of the streets at night. I have witnessed these kids throwing rocks at cars, fighting, yelling, and screaming obscenities at one another. Tonight they were outside in the middle of the road (which is a fairly busy street), in the dark, hitting each other with shovels and yelling "I'll kill you." Kids having fun is one thing, but these kids are out of hand.
Not only is this a noise issue, but I am worried that one of these kids is going to get hit by a car. People speed down our street all the time.
I don't want to be rude or to make enemies with my neighbors, but I've lived here for three years now and these kids just get worse and more violent with each other every summer. Is there anything I can do about this? I called in a noise complaint once, but the police never showed.
