  • Pearl Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridgeport
    The major snow emergency routes throughout Cambridgeport (Putnam, Magazine, Pearl, Brookline) have barely been plowed! I am shocked not to have seen a snow removal vehicle since early Friday morning. Compared to other parts of the city, nearby cities (e.g. Watertown) and Cambridge's historic effectiveness at ensuring streets are passable, the Cambridgeport neighborhood seems to have been forgotten this week. There will certainly be problems once school buses are trying to navigate tomorrow, and this should be anticipated and avoided.

    I live in Central square and it’s been almost a week( starting from May 25th) that there are multiple really loud firecracker and fireworks noises every nights (7pm-2am) from north(Mid-Cambridge). It’s really loud that I’m sure all my neighbor communities in Cambridge and even Somerville can hear it too. It def passed beyond the noise control level. I’m ok with some of them before 11PM but it just seems really strange to have firecracker noise in the sky multiple times per night at around 12AM and 1AM still, like today(May 28th). It completely destroys my sleep for the whole week but I had no clue what those loud fireworks noise’s for. Could you please take a look at the firework noise that’s been happening everyday from May 25th in Cambridge? Many thanks!

  • 730 Memorial Drive Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridgeport
    There is poor drainage at the entrance to the Trader Joe's/Micro Center parking lot, right where the sidewalk/bike path crosses. It floods every time it rains and in the cold weather it freezes, making an impossible spot for bikes and pedestrians. It's not easy to just cross to the other side of Memorial Drive, I am forced to either bike with car traffic or get my feet and wheels (and brakes) covered in water and ice - very unsafe either way. Flooding at this spot has been an issue for a long time, I don't know why it has never been addressed.

  • 129 Franklin St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    On Monday morning Nov 9, ~7:00 AM, a car (or truck) with an extremely loud loudspeaker announced alternate side of the street parking warnings for street cleaning up and down the neighborhood. This non-emergency public announcement woke up my child - and probably every other child in the area - well before they needed to be woken up for remote schooling. If you must provide them, please confine these obnoxious, roving announcements to business hours (9A-5P) and don't wake up the whole neighborhood at the crack of dawn. Thank you.

    For most of day, incredibly loud low whine emanating from this building. Can be heard from inside my apartment 5 blocks away. Have video footage indicating how loud the sound is from next to this building.

    Climbing net is coming apart and unsafe as kids feet slip through - needs to be sewn up
  • 45 Pearl St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport

    This entire area is being used on a daily basis as a bathroom. Urine is often visible and area smells like it too.

    Thank you for power washing in the past- it absolutely helps.

    Please do whatever you can to help. There are a group of people that are using this area to loiter and have been doing so for over a month now. They drink, yell, and are intimidating to people walking by to get to the library and also to use the sidewalk. This area needs to be closed up permanently. It is a waste of city resources and finances to have to continually deep clean this area.

    In the meantime, please clean.

    Can we also request to have police put this area on their watchlist.

    Thank you.

  • Sidewalk Defect Acknowledged
    148 Pleasant Street Cambridge, MA - Cambridgeport
    After recent sidewalk crossing repairs, water pools at the corner of Putnam and Pleasant Streets. Water does not drain until it becomes very deep water. There was not a problem with draining prior to these repairs. The sidewalk is angled at each crossing so the water pours away from the street, not towards the street. This can be fixed if the sidewalk is angled back to be lower towards the street than the house there - which will result in pedestrians not having to walk into the street to avoid the flooded area.
  • 110 Pleasant St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    The construction crew renovating 110 Pleasant Street is not properly protecting the old sycamore tree on the property and seems to be trying to intentionally kill it. They didn't put up any real protection, they drive over its roots all the time, and they lean all kind of materials against it. They dug a big hole next to it (on the side that is not near the construction) to in order to bury a big chunk of old foundation so they wouldn't have to dispose of it properly. This is a beautiful old tree treasured by the neighborhood. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE send someone from the city to evaluate the damage they've already done (to fine them?) and demand they properly protect this tree.
  • 554 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge 02139, United States - Cambridgeport
    A ton of trash bags thrown onto the sidewalk on Pearl street on the side of Target. Can’t walk on the sidewalk. Some bags are busted open and people are rummaging through them. Trash in this location has been cited before but this continues to happen and today is the worst.
  • Red Fox Escapes 614 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    as of 12/23/20 the city rolled back to phase 2 step 2 and indoor recreation escape rooms like this are clearly stated not to be open. seems incredibly irresponsible and unsafe for such blatant disregard of the gov. mandate. our city doesn't need to be drawing more people in for this recreation
