  • 2-90 Sheffield Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect Hill

    I am in wheel chair and I catch public transportation. Today, when I was trying to get on the bus, there was too much snow on the curb and the handicap access ramps on the curbs for the bus to be able to lower the handicap accessible ramp, for to be able to mount with my wheel chair. When the driver tried to lower the ramp, because of the snow, there was a gap of about an inch or so. This is very unsafe for me, as well as other citizens. Please address this immediately. My concern today was at the bus stop I was at; however, this is happening all over the city. There has to be a better and safer system, to protect all the city's citizens, in times of inclement weather.

    Also, when it rains the water pulls at the end of the parking lot and drains into the bus stop. When the temperature is at freezing levels, this area turns into an ice rink. If I go over the curb to reach the bus, I can lose control of my wheel chair and slide directly into oncoming traffic.

  • Signs Archived
    438 Whitney Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
    This Saturday I removed SEVEN advertising signs (all for a supposedly cheap TV, phone, and Internet service provider) from utility poles at 400 Whitney Avenue, 438 Whitney, 443 Whitney, 450 Whitney (Bethesda Lutheran Church), 611 Whitney, and two other locations on Whitney. The signs were all posted in violation of New Haven regulations. It would be helpful if Public Works or the Police Department would call the phone number on these signs, 860-869-0284, and tell the company that signs are not allowed to be posted on utility poles. Perhaps the advertiser will get the message. The signs are visual clutter.
  • Ellsworth Ave & Goffe Ter New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Beaver Hills
    Am I the only one who is suffering property damage at the hands of the orthodox Lubavitch children on Ellsworth Avenue? They stomp down my little fence, they stomp on my garden, with deliberate menace. They jet down our sidewalks on their scooters and bikes, and they expect you to get out or their way. I have tried to have a conversation about this with the parents, but they deny everything, even when it happens if front of their eyes. No one apologizes. They blame it on Black children. I have been fighting this for two years now. I see other people have put up fences around the front of their property lately. Are they just targeting me because I complained, or is there more? I am about to go to the police with video documenting their actions. But I would like to have corroborating evidence, if possible. I'm not targeting a religion or an ethnicity, and I don't solicit comments from racist activists. These are the children and parents of one congregation. These parents need to discipline their children and teach them respect for other people's property and neighborhood.
  • 900 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green
    Very strong odor inside the building, many residents believe it is a gas leak, no one appears to be responding
  • Lane shift Archived
    Whalley Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Beaver Hills
    Driving southeast on Whalley, the lanes shift at the light just before West Rock Ave. There are no markings on the pavement for guidance, so cars in the middle lane often shift to the left lane. I've been forced into oncoming traffic multiple times. Painting the lanes in the intersection would be extremely helpful.
  • Traffic/Road Safety Acknowledged
    114 Foster Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Crosswalk pedestrian signal needed at Foster and Eagle streets. There is a lot of stroller and dog traffic in this neighborhood, cars go too quickly down Foster, and with street parking on both sides of the street, it can be a challenge to see oncoming traffic. Something to slow or stop traffic to allow for safe street crossing is necessary. Thank you.
  • Woodland Street New Haven, Connecticut - Dixwell
    A number of residents have noticed that there is an increase in street drug sales on Woodland Street. Cars pull up and wait, and different people, usually on foot or bicycle, go up to them and complete the sale. We don't call the police, because there's not much they can do after the fact, but over the long term we hope they can do something.
  • 415 Orange Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
    About 7:45 p.m. last night another pair of cars, yet again, fall victim to the green light on Trumbull and left turn arrow from I-91—stopping just short of the handicap ramp at the southeast corner of the intersection. No one was hurt only the cars were severely damaged.
    This is the classic case of an accident waiting to happen.
    Cannot we think our way out of this on-going situation and do something with the timing of the lights or put speed bumps on Trumbull Street (as recommended by the officer out there today)?
  • 2-14 Church Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_Green
    On Church St in the direction of the Green and right in front of the KofC Building, cars constantly pull over into the bike lane and stand, I guess in order to pick somebody up. This is a very busy road with lots of bike commuter traffic as well. When I swerve into traffic because of the car parked in the bike lane, several lanes of traffic are potentially impacted and I feel very vulnerable. I take this bike lane every day ~6, and I guess there is a car in the lane 50% of the time. This would be a great place to plan on ticketing violators!
  • 721 Orange St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - East Rock

    Last month I posted about a butcher at P&M Orange St Market consistently wearing his mask below his face, despite my complaints. (I remembered this guy—an older man with gray facial hair—in particular because he was openly grumbling about COVID not being a big deal at the beginning of the pandemic.) One morning this week I was back in the store and saw the same guy with his mask below his mouth, working with food, and helping customers.

    I’m not in the habit of ratting people out like this. I would just like to feel safe when I shop at a favorite local establishment.

  • See Click Fix New Haven, CT - Downtown
    Does anybody else think that there should be a desperate section on SCF for "junk on sidewalk" posts? It just seems to me that there are too many of these and they do little to solve the issue. New Haven isn't overflowing with debris, but you would think otherwise reading through on a daily basis.
  • 140 Bradley Street New Haven, Connecticut - SOHU

    Every night around 530-630PM lately, there are almost no spots available on the State Street side of Bradley. I'm not sure if this is due to the crowd at Dashi, people visiting the bike shop or the combination of the two but something seriously needs to be done.

    Why are violators never ticketed? I don't even remember the last time I've seen cars with tickets on them. Residents on Bradley would all appreciate some CONSISTENT enforcement. Please.
