Notified About

  • Willow Stret New Haven, CT - East Rock
    This car is still there. It's a VW bug that has been parked there since Christmas it needs to be towed!!!! Unacceptable that other cars were towed and this one still remains! City of New Haven since this is an emergency route can you explain?
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • 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.

  • 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.
  • East Rock Park New Haven, CT - East Rock
    Especially on the Davis St. side of the East Rock Park, there's been an increase in the ongoing problem of people meeting up for sex in wooded areas of the park. Can't walk my dog without interrupting something, and definitely can't let my kid walk there alone.
  • 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.
