    Hundreds of pedestrians cross this intersection every day, yet there are no cross-lights, let alone signage alerting drivers to the presence of so many pedestrians. For some reason, cars blow through this area on both Chapel and Park Streets at speeds that you would expect on a much wider road, creating extreme danger. An in-road "Watch for pedestrians" along with a raised cross-walk would likely slow drivers down and make pedestrian crossings safer.

    At the Edgewood/Beers Street intersection (in front of Troup School) I have witnessed on several occasions the Crossing Guard directing traffic. I am wondering if this is within the scope of their job duty and responsibility?

    I am not questioning the need for crossing guards and have no issues with them stopping traffic as pedestrians are crossing. But I do question the need for crossing guards to direct traffic when no pedestrians are present.

    This past Monday, March 2 I was traveling down Edgewood and witnessed a crossing guard stop traffic on Edgewood to allow a school bus and several other vehicles cross through Edgewood. The crossing guard actually ended up totally blocking traffic because there was not adequate space for vehicles to move across Edgewood.

    Even more furniture! More work for the city more money from taxpayers.

    There has been a discarded Christmas Tree on the side of the road since January. I have no idea why the garbage collectors have just crossed the street and pick it up but it needs to be removed!

  • Edgewood/Howe Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dwight
    The new laundromat at Howe is very nice, but right now there are 3 screaming kids running around unsupervised in the parking lot, which shares a larger lot with endless residential windows overlooking the business. People park there and use the lot as a playground, office, and nightclub ALL THE TIME while they wait for their laundry. This business needs to take responsibility for its customers' behavior. No kids running around and yelling and screaming. NO opening your car door and letting it blast as you wait for your laundry. No more loud BORING cell conversations as you lean on your car and have a one-man party in this parking lot. I am sick of this disturbing my peace in my home. a parking lot is NOT for loitering.
