  • Kingston Plaza Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
    I have reported this before and even received a written reply in the mail that the matter would be addressed, but the light is still too long and it doesn't seem to be timed right for any direction. A waste of everyone's time.
  • 109 Cedar St Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
    The bodega on the corner of cedar and prospect is a neighborhood nuisance and magnet for malcontents. There are always people loitering and taking advantage of the stores sale of alchohol and drug paraphernalia in a residential neighborhood

    Theres been ongoing issues in Kingston Ny where certain families are being singled out, when serious crimes are being overlooked.. Also officers being sexually involved w minors and attending parties where minors are being served alcohol. It now has come to light that there has been salaries pai...d illegally to officers for shifts that were not fullfilled or double time cards being submitted. Most recent issue was last night where two men were tazed, repeatedly punched to where there are visible marks on their body, and held overnite at the station,without being told of their rights and excessive force was used, these 2 men are currently being treated at the emergency room as I write this. Enough is enough! When is this going to end??? And who can we contact for help?? WE NEED HELP!!!
  • Wall Street And Main Street Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
    A stop sign is needed for the corner of Wall St and Main St. (in front of Old Dutch Church) for South Bound traffic on Main Street. The visibility is poor and I have had many near misses!
  • Wurts St Bridge Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
    Can someone work on addressing the issue of the Connelly Bridge. Its such an eye sore. Not to mention the fact that cars heading south have to vere into the north lane to avoid hitting all the potholes and getting yanked tords the side of the bridge. A few years ago i contacted the NYS Bridge Auth. They told me that the brigde is one of theirs. Another note, if you were to walk under that bridge and look up. You can see massive sections of concrete missing. The city is apending all this money to redo the Rondout area,Lighting,Walkway,Docks. Whats going to happen when a piece of that bridge falls on a car or worse yet someone!!!! Can somebody look into this issue finally!

  • Sterling And Cedar St. Kingston, NY - Kingston
    Everyday I see this lady walking the streets in this neighborhood.
    She wakes us up everyday by yelling and screaming sometimes as early as 6:30am.
    She has escalated her behavior to punching street signs down by UPAC and she takes sticks and beats the electrical polls down there also.
    What can we do to help her help herself?
    I have tried to help her several times.
    Sometimes I find her crying and screaming in the middle of the road and I go and pick her up and make sure she is okay.
    The problem here is we have kids and everyday at the bus stops they see this behavior and its not okay.
    Its not okay to destroy public property.
  • Spring Street And Wurts St Kingston, NY - Kingston

    I was surpised today to find this new stop sign on this through road. While this may be simply a test, the positioning of these signs is ill-advised and may not become apparent until the next snow storm.

    As anyone who drives regularly up Wurts St when the snow is coming down, unless you "keep going" on this slope, you can easily skid or slide off the road. By placing this stop sign at this location, you are creating a situation that will be difficult to stop at and possibly impossible for non 4-wheel drive vehicles to get going again and could result in accidents.

    I notice that a previous poster complained about sight distances due to parked vehicles and snow pileups.

    A safer solution to that problem would be "no parking" signs too close to the intersection (a car length). Also just smarter snow storage and shoveling by residents.

    One other note - the new stops signs are slightly out of view and I didn't notice it until the last second today. They are also not marked "all ways". So drivers on Spring street who may not use Wurts, may not realize that Wurts now has stop signs too and could create confusion and potential accidents too.

    In sumnation - get rid of them. Slowing and stopping traffic only adds to pollution issues in the city as it is. The City should be seeking to reduce the number of unncessary stop lights and stop signs, not create new ones. Use of accident information and traffic volume counts can easily provide these answers rather than rely on loud subjective opinions which may be at the root of the sudden appearance of new stops signs.

  • Washington Ave And Schwenk Drive Intersection Kingston, NY - Kingston

  • Belmont St Kingston, NY 12401, USA - Kingston
    Belmont Street is a disgrace and I doubt if it is even legal from a safety/code standpoint. Entering Belmont wreaks havoc on one's vehicle and exiting is like a game of russian roulette. The steep grade makes it difficult to pull out and if there is snow or wet surface you can get stuck halfway on West O'Reilly spinning your tires. Add that now with spring growth you cannot see traffic from the left and you are basically taking your life in your hands anytime you pull out. I get complaints from family, friends and delivery drivers and there are even people who will not come over because of this man-made disaster.
  • Everywhere In Kingston Ny Kingston, NY - Kingston
    As a student of KHS I see plenty of kids doing graffiti and defacing property, (I myself only write on my own property, i try to keep it as legal as possible). I did some research and saw that there is no legal wall anywhere near Kingston and thought that adding a designated spot where people could write graffiti would cut down on the actual defacing of property in Kingston. Its like kids and swearing, if you let them get it out of their system early then they wont have to go around cursing behind your back to get it out of them. I know this idea is probably going to get denied but you have to look at it from our point of view, there are two types of graffiti. There is vandalim which is gang signs, vulgar language, and offensive material. And then there is the REAL graffiti/ Street art which is appealing to the eye, a good way to express your self, and has meaning behind it. You might think that this is all the same but us writers would argue that. A famous graffiti writer named Omar once said, "How many people can walk through a city and prove they were there? It's a sign I was here. My hand made this mark. I'm alive!" Thats all we want as writers, the feeling of being alive, being proud of our work, and having our presence acknowledged. Now like I said before, I personally only participate in legal graffiti but theres alot of people who do it illegaly just to get that sense of being alive even if it means defacing someone else's property. If you want to stop it then embrace it. I know it sounds weird but there are actually people out there who enjoy expressing themselves and not falling into the same boring pattern of a normal life. But like i said, this is probably getting ignored but if your still reading this, thanks for acknowledging me.
