    The lines have yet to be repainted in our neighborhood. At a minimum the crosswalks need to be done. School is well back into session and with the new playground improvements this is a busy stretch of Street. watching from my window and being a walker I have seen way too may close calls as kids and dog walkers wait where we know the cross walks should be and cars speed past because there are no lines. I also have witnessed several cars with out of state plates driving on the wrong side of the road because they, likely assume it to be alone way street because there are no line. This needs to become a priority. Bridge Street Neck seems like it's always the last neighborhood to get attention.

    This is an very busy tourist section between viewing the bewitched statue, the tours, and all the restaurants near. A crossing signal would be a great addition here especially with all the night life around here and many people walk home or to the hotel if local it would make it a lot safer the only crossing signals on this road are at the tavern in the square intersection and the intersection at the train station I think adding one in the middle would be smart and safer with the amount of people walking around that intersection and cars driving, its always a traffic jam.

    Salon at 132 north has plowed its lot such that several enormous mounds of snow are blocking the sidewalk, forcing pedestrians into the street. It is now 5 days since the storm.

    There is an immediate need to grease the swing that screeches all day into the evening now that children are out in the playground. I live across the street and the sound is constant causing me to keep my windows closed. I'd very much appreciate attention to this swing maintenance immediately. Thank you. Roberta Chadis

    The river walk along Leslie's retreat park is great. There is a very real danger of drowning here however. If you look in the North river there are new wood walls on either side of the river. These walls offer absolutely no grip or hand or foot holds. If someone were to fall in their only option would be to swim up to 100 yards possibly against a strong current to be able to climb out near O'Rourke's.
    At mid tide the wall is seven feet high with no hope of a person touching bottom.

    Is there some way the city can put even some makeshift 2*4 ladders inside these walls in a couple places in each side?

    Honestly, especially in winter, the next person who falls in here or has to go in after a child or dog is going to die. There is no way to get out of the water even if you are in great shape. It's a flat wall. You couldn't design a better trap if you tried.

    Please consider this issue, it's completely unsafe.

    Hi. People constantly block the Washington-New Derby and Norman-Margin intersections despite the white Xs. I believe we used to have the entire areas filled with crosshatch lines. Any chance we can add some paint and maybe help prevent complete gridlock come October? Thanks!

    New line painting on the Hawthorne Hotel parking lot on Essex Street leaves no room for pedestrians.
  • Congress St. And Derby Street Salem, Massachusetts - City of Salem
    I was unsure where to report this. A car with NY plates, the driver opens car door and dumps trash on the street and drives away. Unfortunately this happens often. See picture taken as car was driving away.

    What is happening to the real city of Salem?! It is fast becoming a tourist-centered boutique gentrified location, rather than a city designed to honor the needs of its' year-round residents. Shops, needed by people who live here & who used to love the fact of Salem was a walk-able city with local businesses to support, have & are disappearing at an alarming rate. Tourism seems to be what Salem is now about, while the people who live here year-round take a back seat to what''s best for tourists. Salem's charm is fast disappearing into the glittery glow of a tourist haven. Where is a happy medium, for a city that is more than solely a tourist destination?
