897 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut
I have lived in the same apt on the Green for 10 years and over the past month or so I have noticed a sharp increase in packs of kids loitering by the benches and bus stop on the Green (between Church and Temple) yelling, screaming and swearing at each other or at people or cars going by. They're not waiting for busses -- just hanging out. The noise level has gotten ridiculous! And the screaming out expletives is out of control! Starting at dusk and going late into the evening. Weeknights -- not just weekends.

I say this as a low-income person who sometimes takes the bus (when I have no choice):
Can we please move the bus hub away from the Green, at long last? Let's stop pretending we're one big happy community, or one society.
Establish bus hubs on lower Dixwell, the Boulevard, and Foxon, where there's more room and less interclass tension. This would also alleviate many of the complaints from Downtown posted to this site, including the loitering and drug activity.

I witnessed two woman under the influence prostitutes while walking my dog and stopping at the gas station on Ferry street (Sunoco) Ferry and Chapel street. They were loud and yelling don't get into anyone's car or take anyone's money or suck anyone's D**k for less than $30.00...I live in the area and feel this is ridiculous...police should be patrolling the neighborhood and keep these drunk prostitutes off the street. I barley see any police patrolling the area! Is this what Fairhaven is about? This isn't safe at all an something needs to be done. There was a drunk guy on the corner yelling and instigating saying don't do it for less than $50.00. Something needs to be done!

This bus stop is disgusting. Constantly smells of urine and defecation. Also, constant drug dealing. The city needs to put one permanent police officer here every day and start mitigating the drug deals and disgusting behavior here.

1. it endangers people (the very citizens paying their salaries, mind you) in crosswalks
2. it often impedes the flow of traffic (sometimes blocking entire travel lanes)
3. it sets a bad example, often leading others to park illegally next to them
will the city take meaningful steps to fix this problem or just continue to look the other way for their own?
because if it is the latter, that is not the type of city i want to live in. and to be perfectly clear: silence = acceptance, city hall.

Motorcycles continue to speed down Lexington Ave. Back and forth for about 45 min. tonight. Called non-emergency number at around 11pm tonight and as usual no police showed up. There was nothing going on in east shore on any police scanner stations.
