972 State St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine
JP Demspeys is attracting motorcycles to the neighborhood that make it unliveable. This needs to stop and we need the police's help. There are three bike parked out front right now and I am waiting for an officer but I have not had luck w the police's help in the past.
We need traffic stops for decibel meters on State Street.

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!
141-199 Highland St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Prospect Hill
Speeding on Highland Street has created an extremely unsafe situation, especially at pick-up and drop-off times at a local preschool here. Yesterday, at about 4:30 PM, a parent's car door was damaged by a speeding car (which did not stop). Thankfully, neither the parent NOR the child was injured. However, there are young children getting in and out of cars, being dropped off by caregivers on foot and by bike, and being escorted across the street here.
Please, we need this speeding curtailed and traffic calming measures implemented before a tragic incident occurs here.
UPDATE: The city and the school now are working together on this-- but in good conscience, we cannot close the issue since it has yet to be fixed.
1423 Quinnipiac Ave New Haven , CT - Quinnipiac
I am completely disgusted how the NHPD and HANH are both handling the drug trafficking in this area. On several occasions I have seen with my own eyes the exchanges in broad daylight. Like any other concerned citizen, I have contacted the NHPD provided them with plates and discriptions of the seller and buyer for years, and still no changes. Sad part is they know who these kids are. These condo complexes are within 1500 feet of an elementary school. Children are seen everywhere in this area. It makes me sick to my stomach to see what they are being exposed to. I am sick and tired of this and unfortunately resorted to moving. I have been a long time New Haven resident and feel ashamed to call it my home. What will need to happen in order for change to take place???
1425 Quinnipiac Ave New Haven, Connecticut - Quinnipiac
Please help us set up armed patrols in the 1425 Quinnipiac area. There is a large amount of drug activity from the New Haven public housing authority (Saint Anthony 1, 2, and the Rowe Houses beginning on 1378 Quinnipiac Ave) as well as Quinnipiac Terrace owned and managed by Trinity Management Company. We've been complaining to the NHPD, Sgt. Anastasio and previous district managers with absolutely no progress. People have been complaining to the police dept and after reviewing comments here on Seeclickfix it has been an ongoing issue since 2010! In 2011 the condo association got together with a petition which was sent to State Senator Martin Looney, Mayor Destefano, Rosa DeLaura, Police Chief Esserman, Sgt. Anastatio, Gov. Malloy, Senator Blumenthal, and US Attorney Stein. We did not receive a response back from any of these individuals to comment on our concerns. We have 2 foreclosures in our condo because the owners could not take the crimes committed and rapid drug dealer in our complex with no response from our police department, so they just give up and let their condos go. Our unit owners are scared to let their children play outside due to the fear of the rapid drug dealing and the quality of life. NHPD has abandoned the residences of Quinnipiac Ave and let the drug dealers deal drugs with complete immunity. If anyone would like to help to start an armed patrol or have the contact for the Rabbi in Westville that started an armed patrol there a few years ago, it would be appreciated. The only way to get our community back is if we take it back!
New Haven - Dixwell
Loud motorcyles, especially during Summer months, constantly disturb and harass citizens of New Haven by operating with illegal and potentially harmful exhaust systems. Why doesn't the NHPD or the Dept. Of Health do anything about this?
New York is working on legislation:
17 Lewis St New Haven, CT 06513 - Chatham Square
This property is condemned according to the city, yet it is completely open and is a serious danger for neighborhood children. This property has been sitting in this condition for almost two years. Plus, prostitutes and drug dealers park in front of the house because it is very dark with no lighting. When is the city going to have this house torn down? Will the city patrol the area so that drug dealers and prostitutes no longer hang out right in front of this blighted house?
219 267 Edwards St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Bishop-Hine
let me start off by saying i am in no way opening this issue to debate whether abortion should be legal or not, so please do not use this space to preach one way or the other.
although i personally find the protesters at planned parenthood (and now often by the peabody museum) very offensive, i am reporting this issue on the basis of what is legally their right and what is not.
when i protested the start of the iraq war, the group i was with was told by an officer that we are allowed to hold a sign. but that since we do not own the property we were standing on, we could not affix signs to posts, or lean them on trees, or lay them on the ground, etc.
this is what the protesters are doing on edwards street and sometimes whitney. they spread at least ten posters on property that they do not own.
i'd like some clarification on what their rights are, and if we can ask them to tone down their presence if they are not legally allowed to take over the block.
148-160 Cold Spring Street New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock
The intersection at Everit & Cold Spring Streets is a dangerous one. The cars rarely stop for the stop sign- braking only when oncoming traffic decides to go. This pattern makes it an outrageously dangerous situation for our kids walking to school. In addition, the one safety precaution in place-- the crossing guard posted at that spot-- is frequently late and generally leaves even before school starts, so the kids who are running late (and not necessarily paying attention to traffic) are left to fend for themselves. Today, the crossing guard did not show up at all. The question is not IF a child will be hit by a car, but WHEN if this continues.
The issue has three parts: 1. What times are the crossing guards SUPPOSED to be present at their stations? 2. How do we ensure the crossing guard is there during the designated times? 3. What can the police do to make it a reasonably safe place for pedestrians to cross? Please help now.
841 Chapel St. Unit 3 New Haven, CT - Town_Green
The other unit in my two-unit building is being rented out as a hotel on Air BnB. The nominal tenant is Ben Plotke, but he clearly does not reside in the unit. He claims to live in California most of the time, but comes to clean the unit personally after some guests depart. I have contacted my landlord - Pike International - about this issue repeatedly. However, they refuse to take any significant measures, leading me to believe that they are involved in the illegal renting of the property. Renters come and go constantly. They have left front and back doors to the building unlocked repeatedly, endangering my person and property. They have also damaged the common areas of the building. Pike refuses to correct the matter.
