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.

    The store on the corner of Sylvan/Asylum Sts. is selling goods in their refrigerator cases that have expired quite a while ago. In addition, the place is pretty filthy!

  • Gilbert Street New Haven, New Haven, CT - Yale University Campus
    Hi. The traffic light at the corner of Gilbert Street and Church Street South needs to be timed better. When you are on Gilbert going towards Church St. South, you have less than 10 seconds to make the turn (I have counted, numerous times), and the traffic on Church St. South has at least 2 minutes to go. This does not include the time needed for the pedestrians as needed. It is especially bad during evening rush hour when you have a line of cars stretching almost to Cedar Street, most cominig out of the Amistad garage. I usually have to sit in line for 4-5 light changes to make the right hand turn. And that is if people make the illegal right on red or run the yellow light out of frustration. I also witnessed a jeep pull onto the sidewalk and drive the sidewalk to the intersection, and then make a right hand turn.

    Cedar St And Congress Ave New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    There is an offensive disrespectful sticker on the crosswalk signal post on the corner of Congress Ave and Cedar St. (on the odd # side of the corner) and if it's removed the person keeps putting it up. Please remove this sticker and keep the area clean for all to enjoy
  • Sylvan Ave. New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    Sylvan Ave. in many areas has no sidewalk whatsoever. The disabled residents of the street who use wheel chairs, canes and motorized scooters are often found riding down the street!! This is so irresponsible and of course not in compliance with the ADA.

  • 842 Howard Ave New Haven, CT 06519 - New Haven - Ward 03
    Howard Ave between Park and Congress has so many potholes, it's like a minefield. I ride my bike this way to work everyday, and I'm always terrified that I'll crash and burn in one of the numerous, deep potholes.
  • 87 Orchard St New Haven, Connecticut - New Haven - Ward 03
    Giant limbs keep falling from both trees in front of residency. One of the trees has been damaged by lightning. Neither tree has been trimmed in the last couple of years and the limbs have grown Dangerously big and unsafe.It is understandable that there is a backlog and you guys might be backed up but months or even years is not acceptable AT ALL... I clearly described the severity of this problem and from your response it sounds like you're not taking it seriously. Taxes are up to date on this house as well as Bill's, maintenance and anything that has to do with it. Therefore months or years is unacceptable and I need someone to get there ASAP conduct an evaluation do immediate tree trimming and put on the cut down list ASAP. This is a public hazard in a heavily populated residential area... as I explained before there have been vehicles that have been damaged due to giant tree limbs falling on them. As time goes by limbs are longer bigger and heavier and when it rains or there is wind the limbs get heavier and just fall. When the weather starts getting worse and the winter gets here snow and ice is going to be a big factor. They do not ask or say excuse me before falling. They are coming very close to the house gutters, windows, Etc. As I said before they have not landed on a person yet but it is just a matter of time before it happens. Someone will get severely injured or killed. I need someone to get in touch with me and let me know what is the next course of action to take when there is an extreme situation that can cause for someone to die or get really hurt? Do I need to call the mayor's office, the news, or who
