Whalley Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Beaver HillsDriving 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.
29 Union Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster SquareThis is the 3rd time I have logged on over the past 2 months and NOTHING has been done to solve this problem. The sidewalk on Union street between Water and Fair Street is completely overgrown with bushes over 7ft tall and trash throughout. School starts next week and students will be forced to walk in the street as they can't pass there. The sidewalk and concrete barriers are collecting garbage and human waste from people who are starting to live there. Please come and attend to this immediately. School is starting!
4 Wall St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Town_GreenThe car jacking reported on the news last Wednesday May 10 originated at the city-owned commuter lot at State and Wall. The victim reported seeing 3 teens loitering at the edge of the lot but assumed someone was picking them up, so was surprised by the confrontation as he exited the vehicle. Fortunately, the victim is ok and the teens were apprehended quickly with the help of witnesses. Please continue to be vigilant and note any unusual situations (like teens at a commuter lot where there should be only adult commuters).
438 Whitney Ave New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - Prospect HillThis 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.
687-701 State Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown
If you are biking North on State St, the I-91 North Entrance (near Goodfellas) is a nightmare. Because of the speed on that section, bikes should stay all the way to the right, but then have to cross over the turn lane which tends to be very busy. Becomes awkward and dangerous for both the drivers and cyclists.
Really needs some sort of green painted bike lane for bikes that (obviously) want to continue straight on State St, not turn onto the highway.
19 Howe St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - DwightWe have had mice in our home for 1.5 years. Pike International, the management company, has been made aware of this continuously.
No action has been taken. Multiple requests have gone ignored. There are now mice in the kitchen, living room, and bedrooms. Please help.
543 George St New Haven, CT, 06511, USA - West RiverThe rank smell on George street continues though the original request has been "closed" BUT NOT RESOLVED as everyone walking past the funeral home can tell you. To be clear, I am not placing blame on the funeral home but only pinpointing the EXACT location of the fecal stench that has been ongoing now, for 8 months. What's going on? If the lines were flushed last week and the construction on Dwight and George should not be causing the smell...can someone identify the cause and properly resolve the issue???????? PLEASE and THANK YOU!
Here is the initial thread:
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.
2-14 Church Street New Haven, Connecticut - Town_GreenOn 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!
Woodland Street New Haven, Connecticut - DixwellA 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.
Fountain Street New Haven, Connecticut - Westville
I live on Fountain Street, a state road and commuter route for individuals coming to New Haven area. There are no public trash receptacles on the street, despite being a major bus route with heavy pedestrian traffic.
Is there any enforcement of littering laws in New Haven?
Are there plans to provide city maintained trash receptacles near bus stops?
This was waiting for me tonight when I got home, where the road meets my driveway. Not the most vile thing I've ever seen, but seriously, who throws a bag filled with half eaten Chinese takeout out of their car in a residential area? Or anywhere?
I find this highly annoying --both pedestrian and automobile litter. I feel like a character in Women in the Dunes.
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.
