    Greenwich Avenue New Haven, CT 06511, USA - City Point

    Another accident last night, car going 60 mph or higher! Why don't the police hide on 4th street with a speed trap? The mayor would be able to pay for the christmas tree! Cars constanly racing from stop sign at 2nd to 5th, and vice versa - it's nice out and it will be a tragedy for a child to get hurt/killed!

  • Greenwich Ave & Howard Ave. New Haven, CT 06519 - City Point

    now that school is out, kids are constantly riding up and down
    howard and Greenwich on gocarts, dirt bikes, all-terrain vehicles, etc. The noise is deafening. Why is this allowed?

  • South Water St And Sea Street New Haven, CT - City Point

    There has been excessive drug dealing on Sea Street and South Water St, (often done behind the Sound School buildings, dumpsters, etc.) Many residents have observed this on various nights and have called police with car descriptions (and eventually a license plate number, see the SeeClixFix issue entitled "NHPD Dispatch Refuse to Dispatch Officers" for more on this).
    On one night that an officer did respond, he told the resident that called it in that there is nothing he can do "unless the Sound School posts a 'No Trespassing' sign, since it is public property." I am told that the officer then left without getting out of his car.

    While I find this assertion hard to believe, I'd like to request that the city or the school posts appropriate "No Trespassing" signs so that the residents who live here might receive a better police response.

  • recycling: Fail ! Acknowledged
    310 Howard Ave New Haven, CT 06519 - City Point

    resolution2012. The new trash toters were introduced with attached flyer explaining that the large blue toters are now for recyclables only. The fliers ended up all over the street and many residents (especially in large multi-family buildings) are using both large & small toters for trash. City needs a much more aggressive education program re. proper use of toters--followed by aggressive fining for non-compliance (yet another way to lower our taxes while socking it to those who are trashing our neighborhoods...).

  • South Water Street New Haven, CT - City Point

    Residents of the City Point neighborhood have noticed an increase in drug dealing and other illegal activity in our neighborhood. At least 3 calls have been made to police regarding this activity which has always involved one specific car. An alert resident finally was able to get the license plate of this particular car and called it into police. The person who answered at dispatch asked what the block watch number for our neighborhood is. The caller did not know. The dispatcher said that without that number, she could not send an officer out. She did NOT send an officer out.

    This is concerning to me--and should be concerning to every New Haven resident. Can someone from the police department please clarify for me that officers will not be sent out--even if the activity is IN PROGRESS-- unless the caller has a block watch number? ( I'd also like clarification as to whether block watch numbers are even used to track calls and allocate officers anymore. I had been told that they were not. In fact, when I have called the police before to report a car break in, the dispatcher would NOT take the block watch number.) I think its important that residents AND dispatchers are made clear on these guidelines.

  • GUNS/firearms Archived
    382 Greenwich Ave. New Haven, CT 06519, USA - City Point

    April 10 a clip was emptied along side 382 Greenwich [reference address = 91 Second]; Wed. Aug. 3 automatic weapons were fired in front of 158 Howard; shortly after midnight Sunday Aug 7, 2011 a clip from a high-powered weapon was sprayed across the side of a vehicle parked in front of 382 Greenwich Ave--an increasingly problematic property. This has been happening all over the city for far too long. Based on what I saw at 382 Greenwich early this morning, it would seem that these gunshots are not random--and that the criminals have much more powerful, more sophisticated weaponry than the police. The following data is disturbing:

  • 99 Greenwich Ave New Haven, CT - City Point

    99 Greenwich Ave has been producing some of the same problems as 76 Howard Ave: noise and disrupting neighbors, public urination, parked cars (with people hanging out inside) that block other people's driveways, dumping garbage out of the cars into the street, sidewalk, neighbors lawns, etc. Can something be done?!

  • Ella T Grasso / Harbour Close New Haven, CT - City Point

    There have been two Coyote sightings within the past week inside the Harbour Landing Complex. Many people have small dogs in this area. Is this something that the city handles? Perhaps trapping and relocating?

  • Sea Street New Haven, CT - City Point

    Sound School just started today and the parents, school busses, and city busses are already speeding down Sea Street. This is a residential neighborhood! Have tried talking to the principal who is not interested in resolving the problem - same thing every year.

  • 198 Hallock Avenue new haven, Connecticut 06519 - City Point

    The illegal fighting-pit bulls being bred by residents at 198 Hallock AVENUE have been a growing problem for 3 years. The dogs harass neighbors and have attacked neighbors’ dogs. Dogs owners simply tell complainants “Don’t walk by here”. Dogs are left outside unsheltered during inclement weather. Police response thus far has been minimal and ineffective. This is in the 6th WARD, Dolores Colon is the alder.
