  • 399 Appleton Holyoke, Massachusetts - Holyoke
    The owner of this property, the Holyoke YMCA, needs to clear this sidewalk for pedestrians.
  • Snow removal Archived
    399 Appleton St Holyoke, Massachusetts - Holyoke
    The Holyoke YMCA still isn't removing snow from this busy corner. I asked the person shoveling the other side and he said he would talk to the person in charge. They remove the snow and salt right away on the other side of the street where their patrons with cars walk. They don't have the same respect for their neighbors and those who walk. It's been well over 24 hours and this has been documented as happening on this site multiple times.

  • 120 Pine Street Holyoke, Massachusetts - Holyoke
    There is a really ugly looking tow yard at this location that is on a DR lot. Maybe they are able to get away with it because they painted a crappy looking "Holyoke is rising" sign on the exterior of their building next door. They need to get a zone change for the lot and/or have their lot merged with their other property to have 20+ smashed up cars in this residential neighborhood. I'm not sure it's even legal to have that many junk cars on one small lot. There are currently 26 cars on a tiny lot next to residential properties. It's so sad to see Holyoke letting downtown be a dumping ground for wrecked cars. It's also vulgar that this scummy tow operation says Holyoke is rising and then parks a plethora of junk cars on their property.
  • Kennedy Park Holyoke, Ma - Holyoke
    Albeit a spontaneous expression of faith, someone has defaced the brickwork at Kennedy Park with Jesus-loving graffiti.
  • 61-69 Suffolk Street Holyoke, Massachusetts - Holyoke
    Here we go again!! The demolition at the Holyoke House is sending dust, grime and debris blowing through the air. It is all over cars and you can't even breath anywhere near the building. THIS SHOULDN'T BE ALLOWED!! See photos
  • 130 Appleton Street Holyoke, MA 01040, USA - Holyoke
    This bridge has been closed to pedestrian traffic for a year or more. When will this be open so people don't have to walk in the street?
