  • Intersection Of Conover And Elm Freehold, NJ - Freehold

    A group of four teenage males decided to throw snowballs at cars going down Conover street on December 30th. I understand that the police need to attend to emergencies, but where are the routine patrols? The snow was still an intense mess for the residents even 3 days after it stopped, and yet kids are "so bored" they have to create unsafe conditions for the already haggard people trying to just get around town? PLEASE PATROL THE STREETS!

  • 67 South Street - Freehold

    Mostly males (primarily hispanic) standing around on Corner of 67 South Street and Marcy Street for hours until they realize that someone is noticing that may call the police department. After they notice they have been noticed they duck into the stores at 67 South really fast like they are shopping or just looking around but you see them looking back and all around all nervous and panicy. Important note: there is a tiny alley way between the cleaners and the grocery store where there is a bathroom for the store rentals at 67 South that they duck into and hide too. The grocery store and money gram people tell people to go in there to hide from police and anyone they don't want to tangle with I'm told by many reliable sources of mine. Most of the time that this happens a hispanic male on a bicycle comes from McLean Street to Marcy Street and always seems to have a black bag in his hand. The male on the bicycle waits to see what the males on the corner do and if they duck in the store or look like they think they have been "made" he lingers awhile before he crosses. Strange hispanic males circling around up and down Marcy on foot or bicycle looking at the store window of the Mexican takeout food restaurant on the corner of McLean and South or just standing around staring at the store windows at the takeout place on McLean for 1/2 hour or so without moving in front of 9 Marcy until they think someone realizes and may call the police department. The strong smell of marijuana coming out of the bottom back apartment and the upper rear corner apartment of 67 South when the windows are open or the door is left wide open at odd times and on weekends when certain males and certain vehicles are parked in that lot or on Marcy Street nearby. People trying to sell obviously "hot" items as soon as they turn onto to Marcy Street. Vehicles driving by and slowing up past certain homes when certain suspicious males are on the corners of these streets mentioned. Young hispanic males hanging out in that Mexican takeout on McLean ALWAYS wearing BLACK & WHITE MARBLE watching people's comings and goings on Marcy Street starting 7-8 am on the weekdays and meeting up since the place opened. Doesn't even seem like they have to buy anything to stand around and gawk out the windows for awhile which unnerves a lot of people...mostly females. On a nice night we can be on our porch and suddenly look up with a dozen of them just standing around watching us and they just disappear as soon as we go in and company leaves for the night. They seem to stake out who they are most concerned about and meet up after you leave off the block away from your house. They almost crap themselves if you come back sooner than they thought you would and you find them by your house. Several people that work at Bailey's Square Janitorial on Marcy Street are nervous about police officers driving by when they are walking on street and flag people down to pick them up and hop in all strange and what not too. Makes me wonder if they do any background checks on their staff. I'm thinking no by some of the riff-raff I've seen the family/owners speaking with on occassion.

  • Potholes galore! Acknowledged
    Stokes St And Bowne Ave Freehold, NJ 07728 - Freehold

    The intersection of Stokes St and Bowne Ave had potholes that will eat your car if you aren't careful. All of Bowne Ave is horrid but it gets a lot worse right in the intersection. There are entire chunks of the road completely missing!

  • 4139-4193 U.S. 9 Freehold, NJ 07728, USA - Monmouth County

    I am writing about 2 areas where rt. 9 south intersects. First is where Rt. 9 South meets with Rt. 33 West, in front of Irwin car dealership. The traffic light is not at the corner of the intersection - it's in the middle of the street. When approaching the intersection, you cannot tell where the point of stopping is.Same on Rt. 9 & Rt. 79 , where Schank meets. Someone who is not familiar with this hazard will drive right through the busy intersection to reach the traffic light, which is in the middle of the intersection, not at the corner where someone should stop.

  • Hudson And Bennett - Freehold

    The intersection of Hudson and Bennett in Freehold Borough is a mess. There are several potholes and the pavement has been cracking more and more over the years. I don't understand why the borough has done nothing about this. Perhaps it's because the police vehicles do not travel this intersection considering how Center St. is always very well-maintained. Perhaps a nicely paved road would encourage people to cut through or speed. No matter what the reason, the locals should not have to ruin their cars just to travel here. The situation is ridiculously bad. Update 4/2/12: STILL getting worse and nothing has been done. Update 12/12/12: Cannot imagine how, but the holes in the street have gotten deeper. Soon we'll be able to see China.

    There is trash galore behind my fence which backs up to the Park Ave School. I've called them and call them and they do nothing...

  • Corner Of Dutch Lane Rd And East Freehold Rd - East Freehold

    This 4 -way blind corner is one of the most dangerous in the area due to the limited visibility, made even worse by the extremely high piled snow. Ive already seen one recent pretty bad accident at this site and Im certain there will be more. Every time I attempt to make a left onto Dutch Lane Rd. from E. Freehold Rd. I have to inch out because its almost impossible to see cars coming from the right until last second..and most are speeding to make the light at Kozloski. Whats ironic is that on the opposite corner is the E. Freehold Fire Department. Just saying

  • United States - Monmouth County

    Many commuters take the bus from this location and Rt 9/Schibanoff Lane. If parking on the Northbound side in the morning to take the bus in the evening to get back to cars this requires crossing over route 9. Cars that are making the left from Schibanoff on to Route 9 north at the same time and pedestrians have the 'OK' lit sign indicating they may cross in the crosswalk - drivers still are not stopping and yieling to pedestrians. At times they speed up to try and beat them into the intersection. There needs to be some sort of enforcement at this light or delayed turn signal for those crossing. Someone will get killed at this light if there is no change made, particulary when it is dark out when crossing over in the winter months.

  • Rough holes Archived
    25-33 Broad St Freehold, NJ 07728, USA - Freehold

    Railroad tracks on Broad St. just next to Throckmorton intersection. I have a very heavy truck where I usually don't feel minor potholes. These potholes are getting horrendous!
