  • Traffic Lights Acknowledged
    6045 Jewell Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    I understand that there's construction going on here, so it won't be perfect. However, something needs to be done about the cars on Jewell going through the intersection on red lights. It's not a right on red, it's a straight on red and I'm pretty sure the whole point of red lights is not to do that. The intersection is difficult enough without cars going through the light trying to run you over when you're exiting the park. Maybe a sign that instructs people to stop? A no turn on red sign? I don't totally know the solution, but I'm also not the traffic engineer who ok'd this death trap.
  • Whitman Court Hartford, CT - Downtown
    Furniture - couch, etc - left on sidewalk
  • 185 Asylum Street Hartford, Connecticut - Downtown
    Every single day I see people paying for street parking after 6pm and hear people complaining about having to pay for parking in Hartford. I try to inform them its free after 6pm but the signs only state 2 hour parking 8pm-6pm so it 50-50 if they believe me. Also on the parking authority's websites it is doesn't clearly state that it is free. This is the only place i found that states it's free www.hartford.com/parking. Putting up signs or having the the Meters shut down at 6pm would solve this problem and encourage more people to come to the city. Also its just wrong to 'trick' people into paying for free parking.
  • 40 Capitol Hartford, CT - Downtown
    Robberies are frequent on Capitol Ave. Another family was robbed last night at Peppercorns. They said they will not likely return to Hartford and wish Peppercorns was located elsewhere. There are 4 different spots of broken glass. Looks like a war zone. I will try to load all 4 pictures.
  • 391 Main St. Hartford, CT - Downtown
    Corner of Main St. and Capitol Ave. at the Royal Masala Restaurant. Graffiti appeared on the brick building sometime in the last 48 hours.
  • Street signs Acknowledged
    400-438 Main Street Hartford, CT 06103, USA - Downtown
    See photo. The signage on the right is missing the "Pay to Park" sign (as shown on the left). Every day I see people park in the three spots next to the pole lacking the "Pay to Park" sign and then come back to a ticket, because while it is clear that there is a 2-hr limit, it's not clear that you have to pay.
  • 55 Trumbull St Hartford, CT - Downtown
    This streetlight has been out for over a year. A few weeks ago, a man was assaulted in this exact spot. I have contacted 311 now 3 times (most recent seeclickfix #109502), and I reported it to CL&P directly twice. This is a serious safety issue.
    How do we get anything done in the city of Hartford if we cannot fix a streetlight?
