Today between 5 and 8 pm there was at least one squad car sitting in the parking lot across the street from my house. During that time frame somewhere half a dozen and a dozen cars/ bikers/ kids on motorbikes sped past them one Winthrop Ave. The speeders were noticed by the cops who would hit the siren every time, but the cops did nothing. No one was followed, no one was stopped, they just sat there and kept hitting that siren every 10 or 20 mins. Not only are people driving dangerously, but this was really frustrating to observe! This lack of action gave the impression that those officers are lazy or unconcerned - either way that's unacceptable considering we pay their salaries with our taxes. As if this wasn't upsetting enough - the constant blaring of their siren ruined an otherwise beautiful spring evening. Did anyone else hear/ notice this?

The dumpster that Mandy Management has provided for the apartment building at the corner of Edgewood and Sherman is far too small for the number of units in the building. As a result, trash is often overflowing, and ends up littering the block.
A larger dumpster (or a second dumpster, or more frequent emptying of the dumpster) needs to be provided.

While riding in the bike lane eastbound on Edgewood Blvd this morning at 8:25, a CT Transit Bus Driver (Q3, Bus#347) tried to run me down by veering into the bikelane I was in and running me into parked cars. He WAS NOT pulling up to a busstop at the time. At the next redlight, I pulled up to the left of the bus (now stopped at a busstop) and told(his window was open) the driver to allow more room when passing cyclists. He laughed and told me to get off the road. This is actually an ongoing issue with this particular driver. I've been on his bus before when he has done the same thing to other cyclists. I've asked him directly to be more courteous to cyclists, and called the incidents into CT Transit, but have never had anyone follow up.

I hope someone is investigating this blatant display of open drug dealing at this intersection. Traffic actually backs up on Friday Nights with so many "customers". I have had to drive home via a different route for fear of a deal gone bad and the ensuing violence. I know it takes time to build a case against these hoodlums, but this is out of control.

I posted this issue back in December 2012, but it was archived, despite that nothing seems to have been done. It has been reported to LCI both directly and through seeclickfix.
I'm not sure the status of this house (it was for sale, not sure who owns it now), but parts of the roof have fallen off into the neighbors yard, and there is a lot of trash dumped in the back yard.
The 3rd floor residents moved out because of plumbing problems that they said leaked down into the unoccupied second floor, and the occupied first floor.
On seeclickfix, LCI said that they were at the property in December and assigned a case number for inspection, but no progress seems to have been made. The property continues to literally fall apart.

This house is really deteriorating. The roof needs to be replaced,needs painting, the tenants have trashed all the railings on the front porch. Litter is and garbage is allowed to accumulate in the front of the property. It is becoming a real eyesore.

Pike International bought the building at the northeast corner of Chapel Street and Ellsworth Avenue last year, and, while they put a lot of work into it, they really need to take one more step and redo this sidewalk. It's badly broken and a hazard to walk over. Pike's a big company, and it certainly can afford to repair about 100 ft of sidewalk for the safety of its tenants and other residents of the neighborhood.

On two occasions, the latest being today (9/10/2010), my domestic partner, a diminutive female and our dog, a not so diminutive female, have been threatened with being shot by the juvenile whose image is attached to this post. He claims to be a student at the Troup School.
The original police report is # 10-55126.
Any one with knowledge of this individual's identity or whereabouts is urged to contact the NHPD referencing the above mentioned report #.
His conduct is not tolerable and we intend to see him prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

There is a big dumpster behind this house with trash spilling out of it. Someone comes from other locations and adds to the trash. We think the owner of the house might own other properties and is consolidating refuse here. Dumpsters appear on a regular basis here. The trash is overflowing, looks terrible, is dangerous to local kids who might be tempted to explore, and we don't know what other problems all this trash can cause. We also wonder if this is a violation of regulations. We live here and hate to see the neighborhood looking like this.

This light blue 3 family I guess has been a drug/prostitute house the entire 5 years that I lived nearby. There is someone selling drugs or sex there all the time. The whole neighborhood knows about it because the prostitutes are loud and people get shot there consistently. You would think that it was legal because they don't try to hide it. I have heard gunfire from outside of this house countless times. The day I moved out my neighbor and I heard what sounded like a machine gun coming from behind this house. I don't understand why the cops aren't arresting the dealers/hookers and kicking them out of the neighborhood. That one house is the worst one on that block and drags down the whole neighborhood. And while you are there, put a garbage can out on each of those corners so that the street isn't filled with trash.
