  • 14 Mechanic St New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    I've lived near the intersection of Mechanic and Lawrence for over a year now and now feel confident enough in my observations to bring up the need for a stop sign for east going traffic at the intersection of Mechanic and Lawrence. This is a highly used crosswalk for residents in East Rock as they walk to and from the businesses on State Street. At times, crossing the street feels like playing Russian Roulette (e.g. anytime at night and especially at afternoon rush hour). Both other directions at this intersection require have a stop sign yet east traveling traffic does not. Yet, the cars that have the highest potential speed are the one ones traveling east on Lawrence as drivers have two unimpeded blocks to gain speed. I've noticed that cars often enter the right turn from Lawrence at a higher than safe speed. With customers exiting The Pantry and Mezcal often, I've noticed several near collisions between pedestrians and cars. Like I said, I'm just astonished that this intersection does not have a stop sign for east bound Lawrence traffic.

  • 681 Orange St New Haven, CT 06511 - East Rock
    I was biking south in the Orange St bike lane and a car moving west on Lawrence rolled through the intersection and hit me (totaling my bike and necessitating ED and multiple medical visits). This nearly happened to me again at the same intersection with another anxious driver wanting to cross Orange. I believe the flashing light should be replaced by a cycling light triggered by a sensor to prevent this from happening again.

    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!
  • 53 Foster St New Haven, CT - East Rock
    I am outraged to hear that the city has declared snow removal complete. Neither the odd nor even side of Foster have been cleared to the curb. When the parking ban is lifted I believe the street will be impassable.

  • Whitney Ave. And Willow New Haven, CT - East Rock

    Hi,

    I am writing to express my concern for pedestrian safety at this intersection. There are no pedestrian right-of-way crossing lights. A barely visible sign (only present on northbound Whitney Ave.) says that pedestrians cross with green light.

    This evening I was almost struck by a car making a turn onto Willow St. as I was crossing. The car had to slam on its brakes and swerve--only missing me by a foot or so.

    Vehicles drive much higher than the speed limit on Whitney Ave. In addition, cars on Willow St. tend to stop past the white line denoting the pedestrian crossway (though I see a dozen cars not stop at all on a daily basis).

    This intersection is dangerous and needs to have a pedestrian crosswalk button or a law enforcement officer handing out red-light violations.

    Thank you for your time,
    Justin Tang

  • 34-40 Cottage Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
    34 & 40 Cottage St: most the sidewalk in front of the both houses a solid sheet of ice. It is obvious that the landlords/owners has not even attempted to remove or put sand or salt down. I slipped & fell hard & hurt myself. I thought the property owners were responsible for removing snow/ice on the sidewalks? The paper also said that the city can enforce a fine. Be careful walking there (and in general) please! :)

    216 Willow St New Haven, CT 06511 - East Rock
    Chronic speeding, cars and trucks ignoring "no turn on red sign", cars ignoring pedestrians in crosswalk, cars and trucks running red lights, cars and trucks harassing bicyclists and cars blasting stereos. 24 hours a day.
  • 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?
  • Car Break Ins Archived
    691 Orange Street New Haven, CT - East Rock
    There have been at least three car break ins in the past week at the corner of Orange St. and Lawrence. I have found them in the mornings. If I have seen three, there have probably been more.
