    316 Pearl St Cambridge MA 02139, United States - Cambridgeport
    This house at 316 Pearl St has been abandoned for at least 20 years. It is looking very unsafe. Two things have recently been happening here:
    1 - people are dumping their trash and discarded furniture in front
    2 - young people possibly teenagers (15 - 20) are creeping around the property and trying to find a way in. Trying to open windows and doors. In fact two young females were spotted by at least two neighbors earlier this evening 9/28/20 trying to do just this.
    This entire situation is becoming more and more dangerous!!!
    The property has not had taxes paid on it since it was abandoned, so City of Cambridge how long before you do something about this?

  • 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.

  • 78 Amory St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge

    As you probably know, mid-Cambridge has become infested by rats over the past few months. My neighbors and I are trying to figure out best practices and environmentally safe strategies to reduce the number of rats that are running across our patios, setting up homes in our yards, eating holes through our trash bins, etc.

    For example, two doors down from me, there is an old tree stump in my neighbor's yard with at least six large holes (4-5 inches in diameter) dug in the dirt next to the stump. I have seen multiple rats go in and out of these holes and through my yard, eating all the plants. My neighbors acknowledge that rats are indeed living on their property, but they have declined to address the issue.

    I have called an exterminator to consult about the problem, but I don't even know if it is legal for me to do anything to the rats, and I certainly don't want to harm any pets or other animals in the neighborhood. However, because rats reproduce every three weeks, I don't think the right answer is to do absolutely nothing. Eventually, the rats will make their way indoors.

    Can you please let know the city's recommendations for handling this sort of situation? I would really appreciate it.

  • Norfolk Ct & Norfolk St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - The Port

    My partner and I were biking toward Central Square when a driver came behind us honking and eventually screaming that we need to be in the bike lane. When I pointed out that the bike lane was for traveling in the opposite direction, she screamed expletives and drove around us THROUGH the bike lane herself to pass us, running the stop sign.

    We weren't breaking any rules and we were moving in the direction of the travel lane. I am so sick of being threatened on these residential streets. Can we please have a safe route between Inman and Central Squares? Can we please have infrastructure that isn't paint on a road? Can we please regularly cite drivers who endanger people on bicycles? I don't want to become the next white bike in Cambridge. I'm sick of feeling like I might instigate someone to hurt or kill me just for existing in their way. Isn't Cambridge supposed to be different?

    The driver was a woman with a green SUV and New Hampshire plates, but it doesn't matter because this isn't the first or the last time.
