  • 500 Central Avenue New Haven, ct - Westville

    What is going on with this house? It could be a lovely property. There are boxes all over the porch that appear to have been there for years, weed/trees growing out the top of the chimney, overgrown landscape, etc.

    If there are people that live there, do they need help? Can we see that they get it?

  • Drug Dealing Archived
    574 Central Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    Drug dealing at the brick apartments, if you are looking at the apartments from central ave. it is one of the units on the building to the right, closest to the road. Seems to be that back door closest to the road. Multiple vehicles idle across the street, a guy comes out, serves them and goes back in. Im going to start taking pics and putting them on here.
  • 203 Alden Avenue New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville

    Doyle's is closing at end of April. It would be excellent to have a deli and grocer open at this location similar to Nica's or Romeo in East Rock.

    Does anybody know someone interested in the opportunity? Please spread the word.

  • 201 Derby Avenue West Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    There is supposed to be PUBLIC ACCESS along the West River between Derby Avenue and Chapel Street. Yale and/or the CT Tennis Foundation has locked the gates on Chapel Street and Derby Avenue and illegally restricted access.
  • 31 Mckinley Avenue New Haven, CT - Westville
    Significant damage to sidewalk from tree roots. Trees no longer there at this point. Grass area already repaired after stump removed. Both sides from two different trees.
  • 135-145 West Elm Street New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville

    Westville Quality market persistently uses the sidewalk as a parking lot.

    It would be great if the City could talk to them about the issue and encourage them to put outside seating in its place.

    The use of seating would be much better for the neighborhood and the business.

    If I sound like a whiny East Rock ex-pat screaming for Nica's you've heard right.

  • 183 241 Alden Ave New Haven, CT 06515, USA - Westville

    Just a heads up to all. Packages delivered by UPS mostly and sometimes FedEx have been stolen. It happens within minutes after delivery. Suspect someone is trailing the route.

    Also - unsure if same suspect - a suspicious white truck has also been floating around just minutes after UPS. Truck has been seen driving and creeping slow around homes, stopping at porch-sightline and peering onto porches from the vehicle. Driver is older gent with two younger gents in vehicle. Suspicious vehicle has been approached and their explanation has been they were looking for scrap metal ON PRIVATE PROPERTY! Regardless, its an admission of suspicious activity. They shouldnt be peering for any reason.

  • 102-110 Fountain St New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    Nearly every time I walk across this intersection a car runs the light during the walk signal. This intersection serves pedestrian traffic for the library, a synogogue, the post office, a nursery school and a church. Enforcement is needed.
  • Dirt Bikes Archived
    West Rock Avenue And Westwood Road New Haven, CT - Westville
    Recent reports of dirt bike activity on Westwood Road have gone unheeded. The activity has been reported to the police none emergency number at least two times and the location of the bike and the individual housing it have been reported also. The rider has been seen several times blowing through stop signs. Will this issue be ignored until the rider is injured and some unawares motorist or pedestrian has a really, really bad day? No feed back from the NHPD has been forthcoming.
  • Fountain Street & Whalley Avenue New Haven, CT - Westville
    The crosswalk where Fountain Street merges into Whalley Avenue in Westville Village continues to be a danger zone, both for pedestrians, cars, and bicycles. Until this intersection can be completely rebuilt to slow traffic down and allow for a safe, signalized crosswalk here, there needs to be both an in-street pedestrian sign installed (as utilized throughout the city) as well as a transformation of the asphalt island at the merge into a planted median and median refuge. This will help slow traffic down by signalling to drivers that they are NOT on a highway, rather in a neighborhood with people walking and small businesses trying to survive. This is an inexpensive mitigation effort that can and should be done immediately. TT&P, please acknowledge.
  • Whalley And Fountain St New Haven, CT - Westville
    Outrageous display of unlawfullness.
    7-8 atvs and dirtbikes menacing in street and on sidewalks at major intersection in the middle of the day. Citizens of New Haven are fed up with lack of police action ( yes-I called ). It is shameful that we allow this to continue in our city . The Mayor and the police must address this issue forcefully and immediately . fines are not enough !. Bikers must be chased and vehicles destroyed! .there has to be a better plan .how long will we continue to let this brazen incivility continue destroying the quality of life in our neighborhoods? Enough!
