Severe sidewalk, curb damage......
Please repair the sidewalk on my block. Children are constantly tripping and falling from the uneven sidewalk. The sidewalk is a dangerous hazard to walk on and even more so when it snows.

This city needs to crack down harder on those using cell phones while driving. People's driving skills in this area are poor enough without an added distraction.
I'm bringing this exhausted topic up since I saw a woman hit (lightly bump into) a young boy on Main Street Anx (East Haven/New Haven line) sidewalk yesterday. She was so engrossed in conversation that she didn't bother to stop, merely paused for a second before continuing down the road. The child appeared to be shaken up but okay, so I followed her for the next few blocks. She again went too close to the sidewalk and nearly missed hitting an elderly woman on a motorized wheelchair near Tolli's.
The fact that she wasn't phased by this incident shows that stricter laws need to be enforced, since people are too uncaring, stupid, or arrogant to be responsible for themselves.
Far too many people are endangering others daily by disregarding this law. I can't care how skilled of a driver you feel you are, pull over to use your phone.
(And yes, I have this individual's license plate number, should the child's parents see this post.)

I was riding my bike to work this morning down Temple St. A city bus (the extra extra long kind, #1046 to be exact) speedily came up from behind me, passed me, and immediately pulled over to the right to make a stop, thus trapping me between it and the sidewalk. People then started getting out of the various doors and I just about knocked one over while I was slowing to a stop (of course apologizing and explaining that Gosh, sorry, I was just cut off by the bus!).
I feel as if city buses do not have regard for cyclists most times, and this incident was especially dangerous. The driver should have slowed down behind me and let me pass the bus stop area before pulling over, obviously.

Exposed ground pipe missing cover in grassy area close to the sidewalk between the Frontier office and entrance to 360 State Street parking garage entrance. Many people walk their dogs in that area and could easily step into the exposed opened pipe

This is what the street looks like at 9:30AM. Massive excess of road capacity which leads to speeding, combined with poor conditions for pedestrians and cyclists.
A buffered bike lane, which is a standard in NYC and Philadelphia now, would make the street safer for all road users by narrowing it and reducing speed.
This is a very popular bike route and with an actual lane, bike use would triple overnight (based on experiences of other cities that do this). This would free up more parking for local businesses to thrive and hire more staff.
Thanks! Thanked!1120 Chapel St New Haven, CT 06510, USA
There was a tree removed from the bed on the sidewalk on Chapel street here right in front of where Scoozi used to be. When the tree was removed the stump was not completely cut down, making it hazardous for clumsy pedestrians like myself. Definitely ate it on Saturday evening. Granted I was not paying as close of attention as I could have been, but I have a feeling I'm not alone in that.
Me and my banged up and bruised knees would greatly appreciate this being taken care of. Thank you!

Public Access Walkway (sidewalk and boardwalk) around Breakwater Bay and Harbour Point are in disrepair due to hurricane. Who is responsible for fixing? Sidewalk has collapsed and boards are missing on the boardwalk...both are impassable.
