    A big group of young adults gathering for a party & not social distancing

    82 Elm St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - The Port
    I called DPW and was told to submit this request. Since the Cambridgeport School has been closed due to C-19, there has been an increase in illegal activity around the school including an attempted break in at the school and people congregating without masks/social distancing. There is also an increase in broken bottles and trash. I am one of the neighbors. We would like to request temporary fencing (high not low) to block off the back of the building. Please do not block the parking lot as some neighbors use it. You may also want to block access to the playground if the City plans to keep it closed as it is used almost daily although not much - usually young children with a masked adult. (The one time there were young teens there without masks/social distancing, I did call the police as I was worried about their health and the health of their families.) We have been in touch with CPS staff member Vedad Konjic about the fencing; he tells us that DPW manages the grounds, not him (he is the Facilities Manager who works with us on a regular basis.). Thank you for your attention to this matter.

    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.

    131 Washington St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - The Port
    Just curious at what point does CHA step in here and help with the situation. People keep saying not to call the police which is odd to me yet the CHA is just allowing their residents to light off fireworks day and night? The non obnoxious people of the neighborhood are getting pretty tired of it and it's clear where the issue is coming from.
  • Tudor St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Cambridgeport
    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.
  • Antrim St & Cambridge St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Mid-Cambridge
    Daily sidewalk obstruction by people waiting outside Urgent Care, standing too close together, not social distancing, spread over sidewalk. Passersby must walk in street to avoid them and observe social distancing.
  • 137 Hampshire St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Wellington-Harrington
    While on Hampshire at Elm Saturday 8/15/20 around 10:40am I saw two police officers directing traffic with many construction workers and pedestrians nearby (definitely within 6 feet) and neither police officer was wearing a mask. They also weren't enforcing the mask requirement to those who walked by without a mask on. This is truly absolutely unacceptable. Can civilians issue violation tickets to police officers for failing to follow the governor's orders requiring masks in public?
  • 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.
  • 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?
  • 353 Prospect St Cambridge, MA, 02139, USA - Wellington-Harrington
    At least 5 employees at All Star Sandwich Bar were not wearing masks on 8/31/20 around 12:45 PM. These employees were both customer service and food prep. There are more pictures than just this but I could only upload one.

    1700 Cambridge St Cambridge 02138, United States - Mid-Cambridge
    Good thing Cambridge has decided not to re-open schools. Now the front entrance to the high school can be used as an overnight camp ground and littered with trash, human waste and needles. Cambridge residents and taxpayers have had enough of this already. Clean it up!
  • 57 Norris St Cambridge, MA, 02140, USA - North Cambridge
    A junk car (flat fire; rear windows partially open; inspection sticker expired in Jan 2015; old TVs in the back seat) has been parked in front of 57 Norris for quite sometime. But it does have valid Cambridge Visitor parking permit, though. Please have the owner remove the car as it is quite an eye sore and may pose health issues as wild animals might make it their new home.
    Thank you.
