Issues: blighted property
Chapel St New Haven, CT 06511
How about the stretch on Chapel b/w East Street and James? This is a major entrance to Fair Haven and it looks like a war zone. Sidewalks are dangerous. Weeds are everywhere. The trees are dead. Graffiti. Garbage everywhere. This is a vital stretch that links downtown to Fair Haven and it screams "poverty" "danger" "crime" "neglect" - messages that New Haven needs to work against. Is there something creative that could be done in this stretch? For example, trees simply don't survive - probably b/c of the huge salt piles leaking residue into the soil. Maybe, artistic metal trees in different colors could be created by local artists and "planted" along a stretch with new sidewalks and new fencing.
Humphrey St New Haven, CT
There is a couch, an office chair and a rolled up rug / carpet remnant that has been dumped on Humphrey just west of the train tunnel entrance. It's on the south side of Humphrey. DPW, please pickup when you can. Thank you.
