  • 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.

  • Edgewood Park New Haven, CT - New Haven Police District 10
    The Edgewood Avenue underpass in Edgewood Park is very poorly or not at all lit -- I got jumped there tonight at dusk. There is very poor visibility under the bridge, making it very easy for someone to hide under the bridge and jump/assault pedestrians and bicyclists.
  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 755 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
    This morning, as the Edgewood school crossing guard stood in the crosswalk holding her stop sign up, I stayed in the opposite crosswalk on Edgewood so my kids could cross the street and get to Edgewood school. A driver attempted to GO AROUND ME as kids were starting to ride their bikes across the street. I yelled at her to stop and she screamed obscenities at me, causing at least one child to start crying. Traffic calming measures around Edgewood School can’t come soon enough.

  • 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!
  • 120 West Rock Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Westville

    Would it be possible to put a bike rack in by deja bru. There is no good place to lock-up outside this coffee shop.

    Thanks!
