Notified About

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 60 Magazine Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridgeport
  • 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.
  • 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.

    92 River Street Cambridge, Massachusetts - Cambridgeport
    I was on the sidewalk with my 3 years old daughter and the stroller and a bicyclist was biking on the sidewalk. I asked her to get off the bike and walk her bike but she claims that it was perfectly legal to bike on the sidewalk, although there is a bike lane right there. can the City mark the bike lanes and put signs to let the bicyclist be aware that they are not supposed to bike on the sidewalks on River street? it is dangerous and unnecessary given that there are bike lanes
  • 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.
  • 95 Waverly Street Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    Someone dropped over a dozen poop bags on the corner of Talbot st and Waverly, on the newly-opened sidewalk adjacent to Fort Washington, and they've been there for days.
  • 492 Massachusetts Ave Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    I am concerned that the Cambridge police are not our allies in achieving Vision Zero. I watched a police officer browse Facebook while in traffic, which is illegal under Massachusetts law. Distracted driving is deadly and has cut the lives of scores of Cambridge residents and visitors short.
    This officer was turning onto Mass Ave where there were likely a half-dozen unenforced bike lane violations, and I am beginning to understand why these persist.
    This was car #227 at 2:54PM on August 28th.
    I hope this issue is taken seriously and that I am safe as a citizen in reporting this behavior.
  • 45 Pearl St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport

    Location: Next to the front entry on Pearl St. Central Square Library.
    Trash. Also strong urine odor right next to door (near book drop) and also by the sides of the entry stairs.

    Thank you-

  • 45 Pearl St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    The entire alcove on the Pearl Street side of the Central Square Library needs a deep cleaning. Please remove all the trash and cardboard boxes. Pools of urine are visible in several areas- it smells bad.
    Thank you.
