  • 1 Highland Park Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    For the past several days, several times a day, there is a high-pitched, constant hum that can be heard throughout the neighborhood. It is especially loud near the Cambridge hospital, but doesn't seem to be coming from the hospital. I am not sure where it is coming from, but it affects the entire area. It is really, really aggravating because it can be easily heard indoors when our windows are open. I have recordings of it.
  • Inman Sq Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Wellington-Harrington

    I am going out for regular walks for exercise. It seems like as time goes by, I am seeing more and more people walking around without masks.
    I don't see many patrols of CPD, but I sure would appreciate more patrols and citations for people violating the mask mandate.

    As things are, it leaves people who care about their health (and their lives?) to their own devices to be protected from people who think rules don't apply to them. I don't think it's fair to put residents in a position to confront strangers about a Public Health Issue - doing such things can escalate and become dangerous, especially with people who think the rules don't apply to them! (think of the Amy Cooper debacle - people don't like being told what to do by other people).

    Please get more patrol cares out, and/or cops on bikes or on foot.

    Thank you.

  • 1-23 8th St Cambridge, MA, 02141, USA - East Cambridge

    Two giant trees are obstructing the side walks on the odd side of 8th St. This video footage captured a senior with disability cannot use the sidewalk due to the tree obstruction so he has to walk on the street. It imposes both public safety issue because people with disability have to use the vehicle road.

    Both the 1996 Massachusetts Architectural Access Board (MAAB) regulations and the 2010 Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design mandate a minimum width of 4 ft of unobstructed sidewalk passageway, exclusive of curb. Since both trees have left less than 4 ft for an unobstructed sidewalk, they shall be removed in accordance with MAAB and ADA.

    Every evening , before the change of police shifts ; around 10:30 , numerous kids light off fireworks outside my children’s bedroom in the parking lot of the office building on the corner of broadway and Moore sts- the parking lot entrance is on Moore st - I am so sick of them waking up my kids especially the baby - I have cakes numerous times but nothing is being done - sometimes it can last 15-25 minutes of non stop noise - can you please do something ???? I’m losing my self control

    Same trucks blocking sidewalk as always. Even having been "referred to enforcement" yesterday.

  • Cambridge MA, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    There are far too many people not wearing masks in public. This is a non-negotiable rule for being out in public during this pandemic. If someone were flinging blood at passerby on the street corner the police would certainly be involved but when it comes to an invisible virus it's suddenly less of an issue? Please *immediately* have the police vigorously enforce this rule.

    1:30AM now
    1am to now still non-stop fireworks
    I don’t get it. It’s the same spot as the ones happened between 10pm and 11pm. Called the CPD and being told officers are on their way. How could it possible that it’s still happening now. Same spot over the past three weeks that I can tell. Please do the job!
  • 433-449 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    an inordinately large group of people on the lawn who had set up corn hole. None had masks and they far from distant. I assume they are students coming in for the new year. It would be a shame if all the success in public health measures put in place are undone by groups like this.
  • 1249 Cambridge St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Wellington-Harrington

    A while ago it was decided to make part of Cambridge st one-way, and with very little parking, at significant negative impact to local traffic, so that local businesses may enjoy greater customer flow safely by having outdoor seating. I have accepted this imposition without protest due to the solid rationale.

    However, today, a good weather weekday during lunch time, there is still no seating at any local establishment, they are all take-out only, and it seems we made all these changes only to create a reserved parking of sorts...

    Given that local businesses are not using the space as intended, the public's full traffic usage of Cambridge street should be restored.

    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?
  • 1591 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    For at least the past few weeks there has been a continuous, high-pitched whining noise that persists for several hours at a time. Tonight it started at about 6 pm, and it's still happening at 10 pm. We can hear it clearly from inside our home, as can our neighbors. We've tried following the noise in the past, and it seems to be coming from the area around Spaulding Hospital.
