  • 46 Mansfield Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    Every day the people in this house start piling up trash and recycling in front of the house. Garbage is usually not even bagged right, and recycling is just thrown around. This is most days of the week that we get the pleasure of looking at their garbage. There isn't too much yet, because it is only two days after garbage pickup. Just wait...

    Literally can't walk up the sidwalk because their property is so overgrown. Full of poison ivy, and they threw debris there too. Nice owners!

    These hedges make it hard to walk down the sidewalk without getting hit in the face.
  • Mansfield St & Munson St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
    8/11 photo of overgrowth in yard and onto sidewalk. This remains after the 2ft high lawn was finally mowed that day. This landlord, who lives elsewhere, but works at Yale, has regularly ignored upkeep of the yard. Texted him that day (no response) and have now emailed. We live in our rental and are tired of his neglect and the way it reflects on our neighborhood.

    I could be wrong, but I thought visitor parking passes were to be used for residents having guests visiting at their home.

    Yale students (last school year) and Yale employees (currently) who work at Yale Health on Lock Street have acquired visitor passes and use them on a daily on Lake Place. I have visibly seen students walk to and from campus to their cars without visiting a home on Lake Place and park overnight daily. I have visibly watched employees in uniform with Yale IDs park in front of my house Monday-Friday and walk into Yale Health. They park from 7:30 a.m.-5:30 p.m. on Lake Place. My house and the two houses at Ashmun Street are the only houses without driveways. The two Yale houses to my right park their cars (when they own them) park at Yale owed property down the street. These people who have visitor passes cluster to Ashmun Street forcing myself and my tenants to park away from our home. Of course, the Yale employees are not here during the weekend giving us some relief.
    When the service station closed across from my home was closed, parking customers for that property were displaced. An elderly Yale professors’ widow who lived on York Square/Tower PKWY was one of those displaced customers. While she was arranging alternative parking, I allowed her to use my visitors parking. My visitors pass was fined $50 for misuse of visitors pass.
    Displacement of the residents of 11 Lake place is unfair due to the misuse of visitors pass.
    How can this situation be resolved?

  • 11 Lake Pl New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell
    I live next to residents of the Yale Crew. They have loud parties during the week and the weekend. The parties start low about 9 p.m. By midnight, I wake to loud synthesized music and yelling. Yale Police tell me it's a New Haven matter. New Haven Police have told me the students can get tickets. I try to work with the students by not complaining if the music is low. When the music is loud by midnight, it takes about an hour before the police arrive. By that time, the students have ended the party and there is no one for the police to speak to. How can they then get a ticket? The City adopted a noise ordinance that would control noise at a level not to exceed 55 decibels – roughly the sound of a clothes dryer or microwave between the hours of 7am and 10pm Monday through Saturday (or 9am through 9pm on Sundays) and a maximum 45 decibels from 10pm until 7am throughout the week. What do I have to do to make sure the Yale Crew adheres to this ordinance?

    34 Woodland Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    The Zone 7 signs and the no parking here to corner signs have not been replaced after sidewalk replacement. Now people are parking next to the corner, and it is going to cause an accident, because you can't see to the left on Winchester when you turn.

    139 Ashmun St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Monterey Place
    Due to the recent heavy rains we've had, the soil supporting the underside of the new Scantlebury skate park is rapidly eroding / washing away. The damage is clearly visible from Webster Street. If we don't stop the erosion and replace the supporting soil, the concrete surface WILL CRACK in two. Grass or other ground cover should have been planted on this exposed soil, but it hasn't been done yet. Right now the supporting soil foundation is just washing away and it's only a matter of time until permanent, irreparable damage is done. Can we please replace the lost supporting soil and do something to stop the soil from washing away? This was a big investment and it would be a shame to see the skate park damaged so soon after it opened (not fun riding a skateboard across crumbling concrete.) Thank you Parks Dept!!
  • 153 Winchester Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Dixwell
    I almost had an accident AGAIN pulling slowly onto Winchester, because all visibility was blocked by this white Nissan Rogue that is parked in the bus stop almost every single friggin day without getting a ticket. This is one of the many reasons I voted for someone new.
  • 235 Winchester Ave New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dixwell

    This property has been blighted for some time. If the current owner doesn't have the ability or experience to start, let alone finish the project the city should force him to sell with daily blight fines. Enough is enough already.

    in addition the lropertyis unsafe with pieces of missing Fencing. Can something please be done?

  • 7 Admiral Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Monterey Place
    Wexler grant school is the worst school in the
    city. thank god my kids don't go there. I know that it is summer but you can't make a phone call. a window has been smashed a side door is chained from the outside, if the lock is broken call a locksmith that is a real safety issue. gang graffiti on the building that has been there for at least 6 months. how do you expect kids to learn if that is around. the little park and parking lot is overgrown with pricker bushes. that is always a problem. not to mention the kids that have so little respect they can't use a trash can. the kids are all around the school Tonite cursing up a storm the 13 14 year olds were having the little kids fight. the police need to ride through stop and talk to these kids. it's obvious the parents are useless. I wish I could run for mayor but you have to have democrape in your name. I didn't spell it wrong. somebody needs to go to this hellhole school
