The sidewalks on this block (Chapel, between Temple and Church) are not as cleared as sidewalks on other blocks. There is still a layer of snow/ice on them. This is a block where a lot of CT Transit buses stop so clear sidewalks are imperative. I am wondering why I am seeing sidewalks adjacent to the Green not having been adequately cleared and treated.
900 Chapel Street New Haven, CT
There is a terrible garbage stench in the lobby of 900 Chapel and the parking garage. People who work in the building say it has been this way all summer. Apparently the garbage from the building accumulates somewhere in the basement and isn't removed.

midway between high st. and college st., students are constantly streaming across the street. my belief is that students will always take the most direct path across regardless of the crosswalk at york. another crosswalk would be ignored here, as drivers already speed through the light at york.
any chance yale could build a simple pedestrian crossing above the street? i bet there are plenty of local architects who would jump at the chance.

This intersection is incredibly dangerous with cars coming flying down Whalley, running the red light, and with the light timing on the pedestrian signals and York St not set up right so that cars do not have time to clear intersection.
842 Chapel St New Haven, CT
There is almost always someone parked in the right lane of Chapel between Church and Orange, in-bound. I don't know which store they are going to, but it's almost always in the middle of the block, taking up a whole land of traffic. I have never seen any cops here to ticket and move them along. This is going to cause an accident or a fight. Please, NHPD, come down here to make people understand this is not their right.

The Green is unsafe to try to cross in the evenings because of the lack of light. The lack of light combined with the uneven walkways make the area treacherous. It is also hard to know if bikes or strangers are approaching, to protect yourself.
36 Trumbull Street New Haven, Connecticut
There is a posted "no u-turn" sign at this intersection which is clearly visible but drivers choose to consistently ignore it. I come into new haven off this exit and often see drivers come off the exit and make a u-turn to go down trumbull slowing down the rest of us who just want to make a left on Orange. When leaving new haven I turn right onto the entrance ramp and I am often cut off by drivers coming off the exit and making an illegal u-turn down trumbull. If the law cannot be enforced (never saw a cop ticket anyone for doing this), then take the sign down. Everyone is ignoring it anyway.

Today's Register (August 27) indicates that the city is doing street calming for pedestrians at the corner of Audubon and Whitney. They should also be doing at the same time street improvements for the corner of Audubon and Orange. I cannot tell you how every time I cross that intersection I am taking my life in my hands. Cars do not stop even though there is a pedestrian walk and at rush hour most car drivers, in a rush to get somewhere, speed up and do not observe pedestrians.
400 State St. New Haven, CT
City buses regularly run the red light at State St. and the Pitkin tunnel. I have reported this 3 times to CTTransit, with bus #s, dates, times and nothing has been done.
I observed bus 475 do this again on 2/13 at approx. 4PM. Visibility coming out of the tunnel is poor and it is only a matter of time before someone is badly hurt. This is VERY DANGEROUS and a huge liablity for the city. Please do something about this.

This is a thread to discuss issues related to the ongoing problem of violence in some areas of New Haven and surrounding towns. Please vote here if you want to see this problem addressed and if you agree:
1. Every citizen has the right to freedom from fear: a safe neighborhood and a safe house.
2. No child living in New Haven or anywhere else nearby should have to hear gunshots every week in their neighborhood (I currently do!).
3. A friend recently said "it is easier to get a gun than a quart of milk in my neighborhood." This is obviously not an acceptable situation.
4. A comprehensive community strategy is needed to stop the violence. Elected representatives should be able to explain exactly what they are doing to support the community's strategy.
5. The constant outdoor gunfire at the police training range is not acceptable. People living in Newhallville and Beaver Hills hear constant gunfire from this range and it sends the wrong message.
Please post ideas for community organizing to stop the message, links to relevant pages, etc -- and send the message to everyone that enough is enough!
