Notified About

  • 142 Livingston Street New Haven, CT - East Rock
    While the sidewalks have been shoveled, they are inaccessible to and from the street because of high snow piles on the corners. This is on a block with a K-2 Elementary School, and the commute to school was made very difficult by the lack of access.
  • 103 Linden Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    A large Puddle of water that has been sitting for over three weeks, and awful, terrible smell, bugs attractive, health hazard!
  • drug dealing Archived
    5-25 Canner Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    Drug deals throughout the day on Canner St between Nicoll and Foster St. Buyers will park and wait in their car, then the seller will drive through for sometimes multiple transactions. 5-10 transactions a day is average-and this is just when I'm at home to witness it.
  • 768-794 Orange St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    Public trash barrels on Orange St., from Cottage St. to Willow St. are overflowing with garbage and plastic bags full of dog excrement. Aside from being absolutely disgusting and filthy (and making New Haven look like a third world city) these bags are leaking disease ridden fecal waste onto the sidewalks and streets. The even in sub-zero weather, the stench is horrible too.
  • Potholes Archived
    Farnum Dr New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    2-3 HUGE deep potholes, may have been filled before but now are large, deep, and wide. Huge safety issue for cars and bikes
  • East Rock Park Road New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock

    East Rock Park Road is a beautiful lane through and alongside the park. It would be perfect for walking, jogging, and biking if it weren't for the fact that people in cars barrel down it at unsafe speeds seeking a shortcut to Whitney Avenue. They often drive right out into Whitney without stopping, heedless of pedestrians on the sidewalk at Whitney.

    People also frequently use the road for unsightly and unhealthy illegal dumping.

    Since there is no destination on this stretch of road—no houses or other buildings or even the park are currently accessible from any point between East Rock Road and Whitney—it seems that from a vehicular standpoint, its only purpose is to shave a few seconds off a trip north on Whitney Avenue. It seems to me that with little consequence to the traffic system, this road could be closed to auto traffic by installing bollards or the like, leaving it to the enjoyment of pedestrians, runners, and cyclists.

  • 869 Orange St New Haven, CT - East Rock

    Was stopped at a traffic light this morning behind a cruiser, license plate 168 NH, and the driving officer was littering a food or candy wrapper out the driver's side window.

    I have nothing but respect for New Haven's hard working officers, but if they don't have respect for my neighborhood, then they should get a new job. Completely unacceptable.

  • 768-794 Orange St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    If the City removes the redundant traffic signals on each each signal post on Orange Street (which is a two lane road, not a four lane road) then cars may stop pulling into the bicycle lane to do a right-on-red....plus the city would be able to use the spiffy, relatively new LED signals to upgrade elsewhere and save some cash.
  • English Dr New Haven, CT - East Rock
    About a dozen dirt bikes were riding on the soccer fields early this evening, along with 4 ATVs. It was very noisy, unsafe with speeding along English Drive, and the wheelies/speeding are probably harming the fields.
  • abandon house Archived
    575 Blatchley Ave New Haven, CT 00 - East Rock
    This house lookas like it has been abandoned.
  • Near Exit 6 I-91 New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    The City cleared a homeless encampment late last fall. The camp was by the banks of the Mill River. Land access is from the Willow Street entrance to Route 91. Here is the problem: Although the residents were expelled and their possessions impounded, many of those possessions - including furniture and trash - were simply left behind. There are at least three camps clearly visible from the river where lots and lots of stuff is just piled up to rot. This is not a good use of land that abuts onto East Rock Park! One nice young couple even bagged up their trash (at least 30 bin bags full) but it's still there by the riverbank. Can the sites be visited and cleaned up? It is really an eyesore for park users and will become a health hazard as the stuff decays.
  • Whitney Ave New Haven, CT - East Rock
    There's a big rush of bicycling commuters to headed to Yale every weekday a.m., and they ride on Whitney Ave sidewalk instead of the street. I understand why they are illegally walking on the sidewalk, but they don't even slow down or move out of the way for pedestrians! I walk my dog in the morning during the bicycle rush, and I'm sick of this discourteous and illegal behavior. I wouldn't mind if they would at least let me and my dog walk in comfort and not be driven off the sidewalk by them.
