This area is unserviced by the city of New Haven. Many landlords are slum lords. LCI ignores most sidewalk and curb issues. DPW only attends to issues at their convenience.


  • 733 Howard Ave New Haven, CT 06519 - New Haven - Ward 03

    The entirety of Howard Ave below Frontage Road on the way through the Hill is incredibly unsafe for cyclists. Motorists speed, fail to stop at red lights, throw trash onto the road. The entire right lane is made of potholes! This whole lane should be repaved.

    And what of these rumors that the city has promised to create a bike lane on Howard Ave? Many cyclists as well as drivers use this road on their daily commute, and yet it looks like it hasn't been repaired in many long years.

    Please fix the potholes! Please consider striping a bike lane! Please find ways to get motorists to slow down! Please clean up the heavily littered road (I've seen hypodermic needles lying in the gutter)!

  • Baldwin Street New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    The crosswalks surrounding John C. Daniels School are fading and nearly nonexistent. The one on Baldwin street is almost gone. Please may these be repainted ASAP?!
  • 20 York And Cedar Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - New Haven - Ward 03
    Why aren't the no smoking signs enforced? Everyone just lights up at this corner and you navigate a sea of smoke to walk thru. I'd hate to be a patietn there with an allergy when employees and visitors just stand there and light up. No police enforcement by NH or Yale. so why bother with the signs
  • Cedar St And Congress Ave New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    Can we please get a red-light camera or some sort of enforcement at this intersection. Literally every day I see two or three cars blow through standing red lights, endangering pedestrians. I've almost been struck and have seen it almost happen to others numerous times. It's particularly bad around 5:00 but happens during the morning commute as well. NHPD, this is a ticketing gold mine. Put a red-light camera up and replace all those Crown Vics with BMWs.
  • Corner Of Congress Avenue And Cedar Street New Haven, CT - New Haven - Ward 03
    I cross the intersection of Cedar Street and Congress Avenue daily, to and from work. This is an extremely high foot traffic crosswalk. Myself, like many other pedestrians who cross at this intersection have to deal with drivers continuously running the red light; often two to three cars at a time. I witness people almost being hit by cars on regular basis, in fact, last week, I was almost hit. This has been an ongoing problem for years now and I fear it will not be corrected until someone is hit and/or possibly killed. Can something please be done in advance to rectify this situation before it becomes tragic?
  • 599-607 Congress Ave New Haven, CT 06519, USA - New Haven - Ward 03
    At this intersection there is a school, a very busy Chinese greasy spoon, a police substation and a grocery store. I watched a group of kids coming from the store and heading to the playground behind the school stand for 5 minutes waiting to cross until they finally stepped out into traffic forcing the cars to stop or hit them.
  • Hallock Street New Haven, CT - New Haven - Ward 03
    Our street has not been plowed. We haven't seen or heard a snow plow. But the intersection of Columbus Avenue has been plowed.
  • Howard Ave New Haven, CT - New Haven - Ward 03
    Walking down Howard Ave today, this New Haven Police Car was blocking the sidewalk in front of Yale New Haven Hospital. Any handicap person, in a wheelchair, etc. would not have been able to get by. This is amazing that a police officer would think to park like this..
  • 70 Stevens St New Haven, CT 06519, USA - New Haven - Ward 03
    town should do something about the light blue burned down house, either have the owner remove it or have the town clear it is a hazard for kids that play around there, it looks dirty and disgusting. it has been there for ages now.

  • Disabled Vet Archived
    128-158 Davenport Ave New Haven, CT 06519, USA - New Haven - Ward 03
    My friend is a disabled vet. He goes to the V.A. Community center, on Front st. in West Haven, for group's everyday. The problem is, he has to ride his mobile wheelchair in the street from Davenport & Vernon st. to the center everyday because of the snow mound's every were, the city buses can't lower there wheelchair ramp any where along the street. There's no room. not only that, the curb ramp's are not shoveled. So the disabled have to stay home or risk there lives riding down snow and ice'd street's, this is unexceptable. The American's with Disabilitie's Act Prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in Employment, Transportation, Public Accommodation etc. The city is accommodating car's and the walking by plowing, but they made know accommodations for the disabled. Let's get with it New Haven, live's are at stake here.
