  • 236 Nicoll St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock

    Second time in three years that the house at 230 Nicoll street on the corner was hit by a car as a result of an automobile accident. The accident occurred later at night. Had it been earlier it could have been much worse.

    Stop sign was taken out of the ground, as well as significant damage to the houses' porch and fencing.

    It appears a two way stop is not enough. Highly travelled area with foot traffic makes this corner a continued concern.

  • English Drive New Haven, CT - East Rock
    Motorbikes continue to present an extraordinary danger to pedestrians and their children and cyclists by screaming up the closed road from English Drive to the summit of East Rock. On the evening of 8/7/12, for example, three motorbikes sped up that road around 7 p.m., imperiling many parents and their children, adults and their pets, and cyclists out for an evening stroll or ride on the closed road. Police are rarely visible at the park and a sense of lawlessness pervades the area, which is generally filthy. A firm presence is required at the pedestrian entrances on English drive and on Trowbridge, off of State Street.
  • Willow St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    Thanks to the cat people, who let their felines roam, I now have some orphaned baby house wrens in my yard. These birds, through no fault of there own, are now going to die without their parent to feed them. It's not cute to have your cat kill birds, snakes, etc. anymore than it would be cute if my dog were to roam around killing cats. Please keep your cats indoors, where they won't be getting run over by cars or killing birds. Wildlife have a hard enough time surviving without being slaughtered for your pet's entertainment.
  • Willow And Nicoll St New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    The crosswalk at Willow and Nicoll St is completely faded away. Crossing Willow St has become a major hazard. This is a very busy crosswalk in front of the Shell Station and is close to both East Rock and Wilbour Cross Schools

    Why isn't more being done to address the significant increase in crime to East Rock. My tax assessment jumped considerably and so did the crime in the neighborhood with so many posts about cars and houses being broken jnto. What is the City doing to address this other than throw another report on the pile? We need an action plan!
  • 41 Cold Spring St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    Stupid graffiti is written with silver pen on the jungle gym at East Rock Park. It's graphic as @#$% and I'm not a prude myself but I can easily imagine that other parents will not be thrilled to see this, either; and frankly I wouldn't want to have to explain some of this crap to a five year old.... is this something the Parks Dept. will clean up or do citizens need to figure out a way to remove it?
  • 209 Willow Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    This is the state of driving behavior and traffic enforcement in New Haven:
    It is the Wild West! I was commuting in this morning heading south on Orange Street. At the busy Willow Street intersection, two cars ran the red light heading west on Willow Street. I then noticed that there were TWO NHPD cruisers stopped at the light on Orange Street heading north. Neither one of them pulled over either red light runner. (And neither officer appeared to be on another emergency call as they both drove away, lights off, with traffic when the light turned green.)
    This summarizes where we've come to with traffic safety and traffic enforcement in New Haven.
    This is not normal. We have accepted the normalization of this behavior: both the incredible number of drivers running red lights and stop signs or talking/texting on their phones while driving, AND the frequent lack of traffic enforcement by the NHPD.
    This does not happen everywhere in the state. This does not happen everywhere in the country.
    What can we do to change the cycle?
  • English Dr New Haven, CT 00 - East Rock

    A stop sign is needed at this three-way intersection to keep traffic going at a reasonable speed - especially those cars heading west and making a left turn on Orange. Friends of East Rock Park is working with the city to try and make this happen.

  • 24 Canner Street New Haven, CT 06511, USA - East Rock
    This house on the lower part of Canner St is being abandoned for over a decade it is boarded-up. All kind of trash is accumulating in front of the house. How is the turn of a broken TV with glass all over the sidewalk. Definitely a safety issue. Again where is LCI? Yes they will probably help removing the trash but they will not fix the problem. They should force the owner to either sell the house or rent it.
