Notified About

  • 1672 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - West River
    This has been burned out for months. I reported this light out in September, and it was never fixed. Please fix it. This stretch of Chapel street is up against the park and gets VERY dark at night, it is a hazard for bicyclists, and attracts prostitutes.

    can we get the police to do something about the group of drug dealers who hang on this corner all day long? I have been working in new haven for 2 months now and see them selling drugs there every day. I have seen a police car once in the past 10 weeks drive through and sit at the corner for 15 mins before leaving.

    Edgewood Ave New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood
    Nuisance- quad bikes. these people are using Edgewood Ave. as a race track. They are not only disturbing the peace, but causing a traffic hazard. Police are called, but no response!!!
  • 1655-1799 Chapel Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood

    Walking inside Edgewood park near the duck pond, two small boys ride by on quad ATVs escorted by an adult on foot. These are these very same quads that are housed at 364 Edgewood avenue. Fortuitously, there was a new haven police patrol car parked at the corner of Edgewood and Ella t Grasso. We told officer Vernon what we saw. His response was very disheartening... He said there was basically nothing he could do. That If he chased them and they got hurt he would get sued personally (this can't be true). And when we told him where the quads come from (364 Edgewood) and asked if they could wait and catch them as they came home, he basically shrugged that suggestion off saying it was not possible. We suggested a bike patrol inside the park to deter and possibly detain these criminals, to which officer Vernon replied "I don't have a bike".

    While we were having this conversation three other masked men on dirt bikes ride by with impunity, breaking serval traffic laws in plain sight of the impudent new haven police patrolman.

    All of this gives little hope of any real action on the ATV and dirt bike menace.

    What can be done now?

  • 1420 Chapel Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dwight

    Most patients and visitors get off the bus at the corner of chapel and beers, in front of Yale New Haven Hospital (HSR Campus) main entrance. This campus serves thousands of people per day. There is no crosswalk and people getting off the bus have to cross a street that's busy with traffic weaving across lanes at 45 miles per hour.

    Please add immediately:
    1. Improved bus stop with better ramps, shelter, and lighting
    2. Traffic calming and a lit crosswalk to get from the bus to the hospital
    3. Buffered bike lane to help narrow street and reduce speeds.

    Thank you.

  • Edgewood Ave. At Howe St. New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dwight

    Car was speeding at about 50 miles an hour down Howe at 8:15PM this evening. Ran right through the red light at Edgewood. Luckily there was no oncoming traffic at Edgewood because the car did not slow down at all. Was traveling too fast to get an identifying information.

    Is this within the area that the Yale Police does traffic enforcement, or does the city do it here? It's unclear where the boundaries and different responsibilities overlap, and perhaps that's part of the reason for this extremely dangerous behavior.

  • 235 Dwight St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Dwight
    Illegal parking of cars. Too many cars in small space on lawn. All cars registered out of state!
  • Edgewood Park New Haven, CT - Edgewood
    Edgewood Park is a place where young men can be seen smoking marijuana during the day. There is also evident (condoms, etc.) of public sex taking place probably at night. I don't have a problem with either in general, but I'm afraid such engaging in such things in a public park invites behavior that I wouldn't want to have there, such as rape, drug trafficking, etc. This is a notice to the New Haven Police Department. Please patrol and pay attention to Edgewood Park during the day but also at night. It's a beautiful, wonderful park that most people enjoy and respect. Please don't let a few ruin it for the man.
  • 364 Edgewood Avenue New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Edgewood
