1105-1199 1st Street Northeast Washington, DC - Capitol Hill
The Ibiza nightclub's music is so loud that I can hear it from a block away (and with a large building in the way to block the noise). This has gone on for multiple weekend nights into the early morning. My walls are shaking!
U.S. 1 Alt Washington D.C., DC 20002, USA - Capitol Hill
The area has multiple signs indicating pedestrians have the right of way at the crosswalks but drivers ignore the signs and the law. Drivers continue to speed through this intersection whether there are people attempting or waiting to cross the street. Is there a way to up enforcement? Or install a stop sign to slow down drivers?
727 12th Street Northeast Washington, DC 20002, USA - Capitol Hill
I live at 721 12th Street NE. Rats are coming from the alley between H Street and Linden, through several backyards and into my backyard (on the corner of 12th and Linden). Rats are chewing through my fence to get into the backyard.
1-99 G St Ne Washington, DC 20212, USA - Capitol Hill
There is a crosswalk here (actually, 3, as it's an intersection), and it is HEAVILY used by commuters coming and going from Union Station. Often, drivers don't stop, or do but then drive quickly through crosswalks regardless of whether there is someone in there.
There either needs to be a stoplight there, or there need to be BIG "Drivers MUST yield to pedestrians" signs.
1501 Eckington Pl Ne Washington, DC - Eckington
Heading south on Eckington Pl NE towards Florida Ave NE, the signage is confusing as to which lane one should be in. If you want to turn right on Florida then immediate turn left on 1st St NE to either stay on 1st or to go West on New York, nobody knows which lane to be in (the signage only refers to going West on Florida or East on New York. Cars trying to turn for either of the other options mentioned above don't know which lane to be in, and several near accidents and a lot of angry honking has occurred (I witnessed some extreme anger between two cars, yelling at each other). The signs (and possibly some pavement markings) need to be improved to help the situation.
Florida Ave And New York Ave NE, Washington DC, United States - Eckington
There are few if any signs posted in the surrounding Eckington or Bloomingdale neighborhoods explaining the NEW traffic pattern, including a map. Pedestrians and bikers have limited accessibility to walk or use the sidewalk in order to cross Florida and NY Avenues. There are at least five schools within the 6-10 block radius of the project including McKinley Technology Senior High School and Hyde Public Charter School.
For this project I would propose that DDOT engage people in the community, including children/community members to create signs that are colorful and stand out so people read them and can highlight access points to the new bike trail that safely connects the community to the New York Ave Metro and Union Station.
1000 Maryland Ave Ne Washington, DC - Capitol Hill
This is a very dangerous intersection, which needs a traffic light or stop sign. It is the only one on this stretch of Maryland Ave without either and is extremely dangerous to cross on 10th Street for pedestrians and cars alike. Please install a light or stop sign and some raised crosswalks or other signals that allow pedestrians to walk. With a school and Recreation Center nearby on 10th Street and H Street just a few blocks away, this is a high foot traffic area, but not a safe place to walk across.
1 P Street Northwest Washington, DC - Shaw
Reporting one (of two) extremely dilapidated buildings on my block on the unit block of P st street NW (in between 49 P street and North Capitol). One of the buildings seems to house in a small portion of it a nonprofit (that i believe offers pre-school and after school care). I know there have been efforts to spruce up a playground in between the buildings, but the buildings themselves are in severe disrepair. There is constantly litter in front of them, the exterior of the building does not appear to have been washed or painted in a very long time, and there are shattered and boarded windows. The second building is even worse. I am not sure there is a single functional window in the entire building... most are boarded, or just shattered and open to the environment. These two buildings are an eye-sore in a community of people working hard to maintain their homes, their sidewalks, and their neighborhood more broadly. They attract litter (last i walked pass, i saw numerous empty beer cans, a dirty diaper, empty food bags, etc...), loiterers, and criminal activity (stolen mail packages have been found there empty of the contents). Beyond the aesthetics, I am extremely concerned about the public health implications of two old, seemingly abandoned and certainly unkempt buildings in such close proximity to my home. I am concerned that these buildings could be a breeding-ground for vermin or birds who carry diseases, that there could be mold or standing water, and that these buildings, if not current, could put us at greater risk for fires. To the best of my knowledge, these are both public buildings, and as such I assume the responsibility of the DC government to upkeep.
201 Massachusetts Avenue Northeast Washington, DC - Capitol Hill
Cars turning west onto Massachusetts Ave NE toward Union Station from 3rd St NE have a green light at the same time that pedestrians crossing Massachusetts NE have the walk sign. There needs to be a red light on D St NE before cars are allowed to proceed onto Massachusetts Ave NE. This is the same issue addressed in the closed issue: http://seeclickfix.com/issues/57654-cars-not-obeying-redlight-and-letting-pedestrians-cross
but doesn't seem to have been fixed (or at least cars are still not obeying traffic signals and therefore signs, lights, or road markings should be more clear).
1500-1546 Benning Rd Ne Washington, DC - Stadium-Armory
Trash and broken glass is scattered everywhere across this relatively brand new park. It's supposed to be pedestrian friendly where bikeshare bikes are picked-up/returned but it's a total eyesore. Additionally, tall weeds are in many places and a big blue recycling box is there too. (unfortunately I don't have a pic)
