    Multiple rats seen every day in the garbage shed and backyard. The trash bins are often left with the lids open. I have to go through their shed to leave my house and I am terrified to do it after dark. Has been going on for more than a month and the property management won't do anything, even after I let them know of the situation.

    More than a dozen young trees planted within the past year in front of, behind, and on the sides of the new King Open School at 850 Cambridge St. are dying because they have not been watered. None of the trees have water bags at their base. The grass around the trees is also dying because, unlike at the adjacent Donnelly Field, no sprinkler system has been installed. Can you please water the trees, add bags at their bases, and install a sprinkler system for the grass, or at least water this newly laid sod occasionally?

    THERE ARE TENTS, CARRIAGES, SLEEPING BAGS, TRASH AND BROKEN ALCOHOL BOTTLES. MAKE SHIFT STOVES WITH LITTLE FIRES THAT THEY USE TO COOK AND KEEP WARM. EVERY NIGHT THERE ARE PEOPLE SLEEPING IN THE PARK, DRUG USING AND MAKING NOISE. THERE IS FECAL MATTER IN THE BUSHES FROM THEM USING THE PARK TO GO THAT BATHROOM. EMPTY NEEDLES IN THE BUSHES.

    For the past two days there have been one or two highly aggressive and literally obsessive birds that are nonstop dive bombing and attacking dogs and to some extent people now that the dog park has reopened.
    It may well be a nesting pair, but I was there for an hour or two and took at least 11 pictures of what looked like mockingbirds repeatedly dive bombing my dog when he simply walked mellowly around to sniff things, greet other dogs, lie quietly next to me or drink water.
    They also attempted to dice at me and other people and dogs in the park and were constantly flying between one end of the the park and another.
    There was absolutely no provocation from any of the dogs and mine hated the heat so was extremely low energy and quiet. They came over swooping at me and him when we were just sitting on the agility ramp. They seemed to claim the entire park and followed him around wherever he went.
    Can their nest be located and moved to a quieter area with less traffic or the aggressive birds be relocated or given some sort of rehoming in a forest or tranquilized?
    They are quite a nuisance.
    I'm happy to post all 11 pictures of them harassing my poor large dog all around his face and back at different angles and different places of the park with different time stamps to show how determined and aggressive they were. Plus when they were dive bombing me and other people and dogs I missed a bunch of photos opportunities.

    I love the shared streets - I've been walking a lot to get exercise since the pandemic started, and I appreciate having a place where I can keep a distance from other pedestrians (very difficult otherwise in the heart of Cambridge) while still getting my exercise. I'm conscientious about other street users and walk towards the edge of the street to leave plenty of room for cars and cyclists to get through. I think most other users of the streets, including drivers, have also been conscientious in their use, but today I was harassed by a driver when walking on Harvard Street, who yelled for me to get onto the sidewalk since there wasn't a nearby pedestrian on the sidewalk at that time. (There was also another car further down the street that zoomed by much faster than the 10 mph speed limit, although overall I've seen cars moving slowly on these streets which I appreciate.) I wonder if this harassment was a result of poor understanding of the shared streets by the driver, and if so, perhaps clearer signage or barriers would help.

    We already have constructions for one year on Putnam str that starts at 7 am from Monday to Saturday and now we have church bells on Sunday for half an hour. Can we have one peaceful day a week at least?
  • 32 Brattle St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - West Cambridge
    Hello - when riding contraflow on Brattle street into this intersection, it just dumps you head on into oncoming traffic. Turning traffic is unaware there is a contraflow bike lane and there is no engineered flow for bikes to safely cross and enter traffic. It is unclear who even has right of way. Since it seems like this area is being reevaluated for bike lanes, can this be addressed?
  • 15 Brattle St Cambridge, MA, 02138, USA - West Cambridge
    Bands/musicians have been playing and singing not wearing masks on Brattle St Plaza (beside Brattle Florist). Why is this allowed?!! For example, 4 piece band singing on plaza on Tues, Nov 10, 2020 from 5 pm to after 6 pm. This also occurs on other days of the week, usually Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays; late afternoon into evening. This has been occurring since September but not every day. This area is also near a T entrance and exit. A crowd gathers and does not distance. No bands nor musicians should be allowed at all! Masks or not this should not be allowed. Please stop this. No police in the area when we see this. Thank you.

    Silk Road restaurant at 645 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02141 flushed their grease system into their alley and into our property, (27/29 Lambert st) which leads to a storm drain. The grease is thick and is an obvious bait for rodents. This is NOT the first time they have gone the lazy route for "cleaning" their grease. Their exhaust system is a fire hazard for the entire neighborhood.
  • 353 Broadway Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    People are constantly dumping garbage here. Can we get a sign stating it’s illegally. Unfair for school department staff to deal with the mess. We also have a rat problem in the neighborhood and this can’t be a good idea. The stuff this am is from a resident on Broadway. The magazines have the name and address.

    I hope the city plans on taking down this BLM sign before this polling station opens.
  • 89-199 Cherry St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - The Port
    Between the fireworks and numerous car break-ins; what is the city's plan for our community in the Port? Feel like safety, especially late at night, is going back downhill. Feels like a powder keg ready to explode with some of the actions seen when walking around these streets.
