Corner Of Blake And Osborn New Haven, Connecticut - Beaver Hills
The abandoned gas station at the corner of Blake and Osborn is a neighborhood eye sore. It is a mess and now there is graffiti on it. It is right next to both a city bus stop and a school bus stop. The property is a disgrace to the neighborhood and needs to be removed immediately.
When heading north on Goffe, traffic is always backed up at the intersection with Sherman due to people trying to turn left onto Sherman. Goffe is wide enough here to put in a left turn lane. This may provide room for others to get around left turners this reducing traffic congestion and improving traffic flow.
This Apartment complex is I was completely covered with trash on the front lawn garbage cans left on the sidewalk for days after the fact and it’s just a complete mess at any given time to look at it brings down the whole corner of Blake and Fitch Street
18 wheelers are sporadically parked on Jewel St., lining the cemeteries. I understand the $20 parking violation ticket they sometimes receive is not a disincentive to stop parking there, in a residential area. Perhaps it's time for the city alders to think about raising the parking fine to actually make a difference. This is not the only place in Beaver Hills where 18 wheelers park--another spot is the intersection of Blake and Valley in the old 500 Blake St. parking lot.
226 Ellsworth Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Edgewood
This building consistently has an insane amount of garbage flowing freely out of the dumpsters and onto the sidewalk, into the street, and down the alleyway. The building manager has been spoken to several times by neighbors as it is unsightly, smelly, and a health hazard. When the garbage is collected, building management allows the garbage to be blown outside of the property line, not properly collected and disposed of. Go ahead, drive by. You can't miss it.
