Why is there no hot water or a bathroom on the 3rd floor? It's listed as a legal 3-family. Is the landlord aware of the tenant's living situation?

Closing this old issue. Property has been sold & is under construction.

Yes I'm aware of that; thanks. But considering the high taxes I already pay, an additional $50 (plus their onerous scheduling requirements) is just absurd. I've no sympathy for all the mess they're having to pick up lately. They need to fix this mess.

NH Register article about this --
NEW HAVEN >> City firefighters called for state environmental officials to respond after several chemical drums were discovered near Springside Avenue early Thursday afternoon but they are not believed to be dangerous.

Fire crews found eight 55-gallon drums in the 100 block of Springside Avenue, south of Common Ground High School, around 12:15 p.m. after someone called to report them.

Most of the drums were empty but one was found to contain what appears to be waste oil, Fire Department Operations Chief Matthew Marcarelli said in a phone interview later Thursday.

Some of the drums were labeled as containing “liquid alkaline detergent” but Marcarelli said he believes the drums had been repurposed and didn’t contain that material Thursday.

Police reportedly shut down Springside at Wintergreen Avenue while firefighters checked the drums. Several New Haven fire units responded to the scene, including a hazmat crew, but firefighters were told to stay away from the drums after the liquid was found. The state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection was asked to respond to the scene.

Marcarelli said the area has since reopened and there is no danger to the public. He said there were no injuries and it did not appear any of the liquid in the drum had gotten out.

He said the barrels were most likely there as a result of careless dumping.

XYZ - Is it alright? Depends on what you mean by alright. By current city ordinances it's considered illegal. But the "no charge" is just not true at all. I'm pretty sure Guilford residents are not driving here to dump their couches and until they do, DPW is picking up the discarded items of taxpayers, so it's certainly not "at no charge." New Haven has very high taxes and until they get their act together and realize that there's a better way to do bulk pickups, they'll continue to do it piecemeal. I've lived in metro areas with lower taxes and MUCH better muni services (and regularly scheduled bulk pickup days! for everyone! ) so I know it can be done.

XYZ there's not an effective procedure in place right now to 1) positively identify the perpetrators 2) fine them and 3) actually collect the fines. DPW needs to set up a better way for residents to get rid of bulk items and until they do they're just doing random pickups all over the city, based on reported sightings.

Please see pic attached of 120 E Grand pile this evening. There is a bulk pickup scheduled for tomorrow @ 48 Aner; can you do both at the same time please?

Sorry guys -- right there with you. We decided to leave Fair Haven before our kiddo turned 5, because we didn't want him thinking this was how a neighborhood works; we lived in FH for 8 years. All the noise, trash, violence, drugs, prostitution, theft of every.single.item in my yard, break-ins, hit and runs, the list goes on and on. We would love to afford to live outside of New Haven but our business is also here. We purchased a fixer upper in a neighborhood that is almost 100% quieter and we have twice as much yard now to enjoy. Every time I have to go back into Fair Haven I can't believe the trash that exists there--it's really disgusting and I wish they would assign an NHPD task force to this entire section of town. Enforcing the most basic of laws and ordinances would go a REALLY long way to cleaning up this mess.

from the New Haven Independent today: "That night, around 11:20, gunfire erupted by Roosevelt’s Bar on State Street at Bradley. “Arriving officers encountered a large crowd. They were patrons at the bar’s ‘White Party’ (a themed party at which patrons are dressed in all white). It took officers some time to disperse the crowds and search for evidence. None were very cooperative when questioned about the gunfire. No evidence could be found. Witnesses did report gunfire.” according to Hartman."

On Friday 8/7 at 3:45pm there were TWO vehicles parked in the no parking area, dangerously narrowing the road during a heavy traffic time.

Couch has been removed - please close this issues. Thanks.

Did you call the police? Next time definitely call them and see what they can do. And leave a firm note on the car as well!

apt - well that's a little extreme, but okay. I highly recommend that you create a separate issue on SeeClickFix for the Chatham Park location, and open a dialog with the City about it. This appears to be for a different location, based on the map marker I'm seeing.
