  • Academy St. New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square

    Every single day there is a City of New Haven Emergency Operations SUV (#42 or #43) that parks illegally and in violation of the parking requirements that all other residents are held accountable to, and this vehicle is NEVER ticketed, booted, or towed. The person who operates this vehicle is a resident on either Academy or Court and is not conducting city business during the times that the vehicle is parked in violation. Often it is parked too close to the fire hydrant or to the entrance of Court Street making the turn onto court dangerous and difficult to navigate.

    Moreover, the vehicle is huge and is often parked nearly on top of other vehicles or blocking in other vehicles that are legally and respectfully parallel parked on the street. There have been numerous times that we parkers have been unable to easily get our cars out of our parking space without damage due to this vehicle being parked illegally, or too close.

    It seems unfair and unjust that a person operating a city vehicle outside of their business hours is free to park anywhere they wish, in violation of many parking codes, and yet we residents are ticked regularly while simply unloading groceries or home goods for a matter of moments.

    If a person is using a city vehicle as a personal vehicle they should be held to the same standards and regulations that the rest of us Wooster Square residents are held to when it comes to parking.

  • 974 State Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine
    JP Dempsey and Goosdellows outdoor tables take up too much of the sidewalk. Pedestrians are forced to use the "brick" section of the sidewalk which is cluttered with utility poles, newspaper machines and fire hydrants. It is nearly impossible for anyone in a wheelchair or stroller to get by.
  • 607 East Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock

    Several issues with this property, all arising from the store "Gloria's Market." Owner uses city trash bins and recycling when he should be using a commercial hauler, side of the building and alleyway clogged with fixtures and trash every week. Customers spill over on to the sidewalk and loiter day and night and lots of illegal parking blocking the front of 605 and 603. Cars blocking fire hydrants, standing, idling, sticking out into East when they park on the corner of State, and jutting out into State when parked on East. Owner and his unfriendly customers often have open containers of beer and leave trash down State and up East.

    Since taking over the business this owner has been neglectful, disrespectful of the neighborhood and generally unwilling to do anything about any complaints that have been brought to him and it just keeps getting worse.

  • State And Bradley St. New Haven, CT - Downtown
    The owner of Cafe Goodfellas consistently parks his black SUV in the no-standing zone in front of the restaurant. It's been there each of the last three days. This obstructs the visibility of cars turning from Bradley onto State and also blocks a fire hydrant. This is not just a nuisance, it's a public safety issue.
  • Eastern Street New Haven, CT - Fair Haven Heights
    I email inbox is blowing up with an excessive amount of emails from SeeClickFix regarding if fire hydrants being cleared. Most of them regard fire hydrants in areas i don't live in. While I understand the necessity of fire hydrants being cleared, I really would appreciate it if I didn't have to scroll down dozens of emails concerning them to get to a work email.
  • 102 Fort Hale Rd New Haven, ct - East Shore
    Every day, grey sedan is parked within ten feet of a fire hydrant. Typically either 1-2 feet. Been happening every day. If it's not there, the girl is not home, if she is home the car is 100% of the time parked in front of the hydrant. There isn't enough parking as is, therefore this is getting to the point where it needs to be known. They have plenty of room in their driveway for the car to be parked.
  • 800 Chapel New Haven, CT - 770 Chapel Big
    can you please stop the person who floods the site with messages about snowed in fire hydrants. It kills the site. i am a fan of this site but ready to delegate messages to spam...
  • Burton St And Central Ave New Haven, CT - Westville
    I saw a single bespectacled white guy waiting in his car, two guys drive up and idle where the fire hydrant is, the bespectacled guy walk briskly to the car, exchange something through the drivers side window and both of them drive away quickly. I'm reporting this so we can all be vigilant about this sort of crap happening in our neighborhood. I think people from out of this neighborhood are using our streets for this sort of bull$h%t and it makes me very angry. I wish I had gotten the license plates. Neighbors please be vigilant.
  • 148-198 Church Street New Haven, CT - Town_Green
    I think its great that someone is using SCF to check on the work of cleanup crews in clearing essential infrastructure, but do I really need to receive an email asking if the hydrant has been cleared for every damned fire hydrant in New Haven?
  • 633 Russell Street New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Fair Haven Heights
    Raw sewage bubbling out of the ground, right behind the fire hydrant at the corner of Russell and Clifton street. This has been going on for a long time! Smells really bad!!
  • Lyon Street New Haven, Connecticut - Wooster Square
    The next time the Regional Water Authority needs to test the flow of the city's fire hydrants on a weekday morning (or any time), a process that leads to dirt entering the water pipes of neighbors so that brown sludge pours out of their faucets when they turn them on to make coffee/brush their teeth/take a shower -- I wonder if maybe, just maybe, someone might give the people in affected neighborhoods some advance notice? Because having MUD coming out of your faucets instead of water is not the most pleasant surprise when you're trying to get ready for work or school. Or maybe this kind of testing could be done late at night, or in the middle of the afternoon? But in any case, with some ADVANCE WARNING? Would that be possible?
  • 577 Quinnipiac Ave New Haven, CT - Fair Haven Heights
    Mazda and Nissan sedans parked in the street since the major storm. Blocking two way traffic, and blocking access to fire hydrant. Asked the owners to move, but they continue to park there. They will prevent plowing operations during the next storm.
