  • Church Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green

    Marking this under "Public Space" because it severely inhibits the enjoyment thereof for women in New Haven. Repeatedly and on a near-daily basis, I am verbally harassed in the vicinity of Chapel and Church, often in a beyond-lewd manner. (In some instances, the harassers ride their bicycles on the side walk to do so.) Other women also report being similarly harassed as well.

    Can't something be done about this: more police patrols? Flyering? Posters? Pretty tired of this being tacitly accepted behavior in cities.

  • 1-47 Center St New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green

    There have been too many shootings here. The outside area is also too loud for this neighborhood. This one bar is destroying new haven from the center outwards.

    Should we stop eating at Bentara because it is no longer safe?

  • 347 College St New Haven, CT 06510 - Downtown

    A crosswalk is needed from Phelps Gate to the Green. There is a mid block crosswalk on Temple Street, in front of the Omni Hotel (which has far fewer pedestrians than Phelps Gate!), which could serve as a model.

    Doing this would require bumping out the curbs and removing some parking spaces, in order to increase the visibility of pedestrians.

    It would also help reduce speeding on the street. Cars currently travel through this area at very high speeds, putting pedestrians' lives at risk.

  • Lighting Acknowledged
    Chapel And Church new haven, Connecticut - Town_Green

    New Haven resident requesting additional pathway lighting on the New Haven Green, (some pathway lights are burned out, and additional can be installed on the area between Church & Temple.

    The area is dark and can be dangerous for Yale students/faculty and all citizens who live off nearby.
    Thank you.

    The entry and exit is constantly blocked by bus patrons. It is a safety hazard and a shelter needs to be placed away from the entrance. You can donate to a temporary bench for this bus stop here: http://bit.ly/MJrWnq
  • 703-753 State St New Haven, CT - Downtown
    Watch or Watcher and Bump destroyed the mural. They are writing DOA along with their tags. We are going to try and raise some extra money to resolve this. Worst case scenario is we get some extra days to hang out together and wheat paste.
  • 760 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green

    We need more police presence on the 700 Block of Chapel Street. In the last three days a woman who works in our building was grabbed by the arm by a man at the bus stop. Also a man just urinated on the doorway to 760 Chapel Street. When I caught him, he ran across the street in to a late model Pontiac driven by an older woman.

    Is it possible to have more police patrolling the streets and bus stops in this area so everyone feels safe and issues like this decrease?

  • New Haven New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    I have a suggestion for the city. Right now is a perfect time to do an LCI ticketing blitzkrieg for unshovelled sidewalks. I know the city has always been hesitant to enforce this law because of the unpredictability of storms and the chance that a homeowner isn't able bodied. However, I've personally observed many homes with plowed direways and unshovelled sidewalks. This is utterly selfish and unaccceptable and should be an easy red flag for the city to ticket.
  • 756 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green
    Please add a bike rack on the sidewalk in front of Happiness Lab at The Grove, near lower Chapel at State St. There is very little bike parking in this area and it fills up pretty quickly.
  • 760-770 Chapel Street New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green
    All day long, people of all ages and backgrounds "jaywalk" across this block of Chapel Street, between State and Orange. Effective urban design should follow popular demand. The people clearly want to cross here, let's make it SAFE.
  • 777 Chapel Street New Haven, CT 06510, USA - Town_Green
    If you are the owner of this vehicle your car was just broken into. I called the Nhpd and pursued the individual but the it took too long for non emergency to pick up and I was told not to follow by the time they got on the phone. The man was last seen headed up crown towards orange carrying a duffle bag. Sorry that I could not have helped to catch him,
  • 195 Elm St New Haven, CT - Downtown

    midway between high st. and college st., students are constantly streaming across the street. my belief is that students will always take the most direct path across regardless of the crosswalk at york. another crosswalk would be ignored here, as drivers already speed through the light at york.

    any chance yale could build a simple pedestrian crossing above the street? i bet there are plenty of local architects who would jump at the chance.
