  • 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.
  • 129 Franklin St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    On Monday morning Nov 9, ~7:00 AM, a car (or truck) with an extremely loud loudspeaker announced alternate side of the street parking warnings for street cleaning up and down the neighborhood. This non-emergency public announcement woke up my child - and probably every other child in the area - well before they needed to be woken up for remote schooling. If you must provide them, please confine these obnoxious, roving announcements to business hours (9A-5P) and don't wake up the whole neighborhood at the crack of dawn. Thank you.
  • 114 Mt Auburn St Cambridge, MA 02138, USA - West Cambridge
    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.

  • 1-23 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.

  • 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.

    Please post police officers in this area who will vigorously enforce masks for all people especially joggers who think the rules don't apply to them.
  • Sennott Park Cambridge, MA, USA - The Port
    Fireworks (lots of them) shot off from vicinity of Sennott Park. This is an every night occurrence from there and other locations.
  • 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.
  • 187 Hampshire St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Wellington-Harrington
