  • 160-166 Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    Some guys camping out (taking care of hygiene needs) and then hanging out drinking beer at the corner of Front and Grand, the benches at the edge of the river run. I know, I should have a little more compassion (the shelter in fair haven are notoriously dangerous etc etc), but it's a very public space, kids and families all around, so those guys need to at least move their activities to a less public venue.

  • 37 Grand Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    Dirtbikes, pulling wheelies, terrorizing children in parks and street, the usual mayhem. Front Street, Grand Avenue, Chapel Street.

  • 88-108 Mitchell Drive New Haven, Connecticut - East Rock

    Dirtbikes on mitchell drive at 6 pm today, dirt bikes on ferry street bridge at 6 pm 4/14/15. Fair Haven is infested with them. Seems like this is not a priority for police chief and mayor, not a peep from either on how they are going to implement confiscation laws to get the bikes off the street (I remember that she was the one member of the New Haven delegation in Hartford to not co-sponsor the legislation allowing the city to raise fees to reclaim confiscated bikes). It's going to be a long hot summer...

  • 72 Middletown Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Quinnipiac

    3 pm this afternoon, 4 ATVs flying down Middletown from Clinton to Front Street, pulling wheelies. The usual.

    So, there was some success last year using the new law on illegal dirt bike and ATV activity. I'm hoping the police department is able to track down addresses and locations of these ATVs and dirt bikes and confiscate them asap. But concerned that kids have learned from last summer and now slicker about where they hide their bikes.

  • Ella T Grasso Boulevard New Haven, Connecticut - Hill

    The temporary re-configuration of traffic lanes at the entrance to northbound I 95 at exit 45, at Ella Grasso Blvd, is a danger zone. Cars moving east, going on to the ramp, are constantly cutting off cars moving west, towards Kimberly Ave. That's not the best description of the problem but drive around that area of exits and entrances and you'll see how difficult it is to navigate and avoid oncoming traffic.

  • 223 Clinton Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    Young male with scarf over his face, on green and white dirt bike, flying down Clinton Ave pulling wheelies, in front of Clinton Ave School and then by Mary Wade nursing home. Would be nice to have some public update from NHPD or City Hall on how goes the effort to get dirt bikes/ATVs off the streets. My sense is that this is not on Mayor Harp's radar (she wasn't involved, to my knowledge, in legislative effort in 2013 to pass the ATV/Dirtbike law in Hartford). Until this becomes a headache for her (telephone calls, Clickfixing, Alder committee hearings) I don't expect Chief Esserman to get going on this again.

  • 270 Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    Pack of ATVs terrorizing residents on Front Street as they try to dig out from the snow storm. Riding at residents, threatening them, pulling wheelies against traffic and blocking traffic.

  • 33-43 Humphrey Street New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven

    Not particularly interesting or inspired graffiti on the walls of the railroad underpass between Humphrey and Lombard. The architecture of the underpass, though, with dozens of arches and a sort of catacomb ambiance, might work well for a talented graffiti artist looking for a large and unconventional canvas.

  • Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    What better way to say Merry X Mas to all your neighbors and friends than by getting together and roaring through the neighborhood on your dirt bikes and ATVs? Yup, 3:30 pm today, moving through Fair Haven along Front Street, from Grand Ave to Middletown. My wife says "doesn't it seem a bit futile?" when she sees my ClickFixing. There was progress on the dirtbikes/ATVs but now seems to be returning to the old chaos. Help!

  • Middletown Avenue New Haven, Connecticut - Quinnipiac

    2:40 pm, Middletown Ave headed to State Street and then into Hess Gas Station on State Street. 15 - 20 dirbikes/ATVs (felt/sounded like 30), on the sidewalks, in and out of traffic, wheelies, swarming cars and pedestrians. I was able to get a picture of a few who parked at a house across the street. About as intense an assault by dirt bikes as I've witnessed in over a year.

  • Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    Loud ATVs have been flying around the Front Street, Middletown Ave, Clinton Ave zone this weekend. Yesterday, saw 2 pulling wheelies and generally impeding traffic going south on Middletown Ave around 4 pm. Now, 1 pm Sunday, up and down Front Street. The crack sleuths at NHPD shouldn't have too difficult a time tracking down and impounding the ATVs, I hope.

    well, the dirt bikes are back in Fair Haven after a blessed peaceful summer without them. Roaring up and down Front Street at 10:30 in the evening.

  • Front Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    I am loathe to jinx the wonderful, exhilarating calm that has, against all odds, settled on Front Street with regard to the dirt bikers and ATVers. And I'm wondering is it just me, or have they really been put out of business with the new law on confiscation fines? Has the tide been turned or is it just a mirage?

  • Clinton Park New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    Thursday afternoon (3/20/14), Clinton Park, about 8 dirtbikes and ATVs flying around Clinton School and Clinton Park. The usual wheelies, high speeds near children playing, etc etc. They seemed very non-chalant and very unconcerned that law enforcement might take notice.
