  • Speeding Archived
    Putnam Street - Frog Hollow

    School Zone speed limit is never enforced. There are many speeding cars on Putnam Street. Having a few speed bumps and some police presence when the Burns School is in session would help to alleviate this.

    866-868 Park Street Hartford, Connecticut - Frog Hollow

    It appears that a chop shop is being run out the back of 866-868 Park Street. Backyard is littered with bicycle parts and a stolen bike was reportedly sold out front.

    This is both a police and a zoning issue.

  • 764 Park St Hartford, CT 06106, USA - Frog Hollow

    The gymnasium part of St. Anne's has a fresh batch of graffiti on the side facing Park Street. There has long been some on it, but in recent days a significant more has been added. It's not the type of work that remotely fits into the category of art and should probably be removed.

    Somewhat related -- the gymnasium part of the building is somewhat of an eyesore, as there is just this swath of bleak concrete. Maybe the church could add some planters filled with flowers and plants to this side. It'd make the building look less vacant and probably less appealing as a target for vandals.

    update: as of January 2011 the graffiti is still present

  • 372-420 Capitol Ave Hartford, CT 06106, USA - Frog Hollow

    In the CT State Dept of Mental Health driveway there is a sinkhole that could seriously damage a vehicle. There's really no warning that it is there and several people have driven into it so far. It's been there for weeks. The State needs to take responsibility and repair this. It's several feet wide and at least a foot deep.

  • 189 Putnam St Hartford, CT - Frog Hollow

    Early this afternoon an out-of-control Acura crashed into (and destroyed) a fire hydrant at the corner of Putnam and Russ-- right in front of Burns elementary school. They've towed away the car but a big puddle of motor oil remains in the gutter as of 1:50 PM.

    The grass is so high the city may need a herd of cows to cut it. Never been cut all year so far. Pope Park is a mess but noticed today the city has started to cut the grass at the entrance, but why leave the grass where its been cut? We also noticed along the sidewalk going south in the park to the new playground waist high grass. This is where folks like to sit to watch games being played. No one wants ticks! I know that it this was my property I would get a citation from the city. Are those who make the laws above the law?
