  • 17 Lewis St New Haven, CT 06513 - Chatham Square

    This property is condemned according to the city, yet it is completely open and is a serious danger for neighborhood children. This property has been sitting in this condition for almost two years. Plus, prostitutes and drug dealers park in front of the house because it is very dark with no lighting. When is the city going to have this house torn down? Will the city patrol the area so that drug dealers and prostitutes no longer hang out right in front of this blighted house?

  • Crosswalk needed Acknowledged
    279 Front St New Haven, CT 06513 - Chatham Square

    A crosswalk is needed for the northern corner of the Pine St/Front St intersection to allow for safe access for children and families to the pedestrian gate of the Waucoma Yacht Club. Currently a dangerous curve on Front Street leaves families with young children dodging speeding traffic to access the pedestrian gate. The road was redone without this crosswalk being striped. There is currently no visual cue for the motorist that people are crossing. Summer boating season makes this a serious issue as more and more people access the club.

  • Ferry Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    Why do the police continue to let prostitutes run rampant up and down Ferry Street and the side streets? This just increases drug activity and brings in more undesirable people. These prostitutes are also dealing for the dealers to get their drugs and I see the police pass by and do nothing, looks like the police do not care and have given up on Fair Haven, which was once a nice area to live in. What do we need to do to have the police do something??? Each time I call the police take forever to get there and the girls disappear and the dealers hide and when they do stop any of these girls the girls walk away laughing what a slap in the face to the good people in the area

  • 263 Chapel Street New Haven, Connecticut - Fair Haven

    It seems that when the changeover to the new traffic signal on the corner of Chapel and James Streets happened, the timing for the light changes was also changed. Now it takes an excessively *long* time for the light to turn green for James Street drivers. This is particularly problematic because there are TWO SCHOOLS on James Street right near this corner so that at drop off and pick up time, traffic-- including school buses and families picking up and dropping off-- becomes extremely backed up on James, well past Saltonstall and in front of the Martinez School.

    This morning, we actually thought the light was broken as we waited, and waited, and waited on James-- the longest we have ever waited in the five years we have worked in this neighborhood.

    Please, please-- is there someone from the City, Transportation, Traffic, & Parking, that can come down to see this corner *in person*? Ever since the work began here last spring with the new electric box, pedestrian cross, etc., this corner is a mess, including serious wheelchair accessibility issues as the pedestrian cross pole was put in the middle of the sidewalk. Thank you.

  • E Grand Ave New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Chatham Square

    "Its all fun and games till someone loses an eye"There are signs posted on the bridge that say "no fishing from bridge" and the fisherman are continually fishing right under the sign. This poses a very dangerous problem for boaters. As we try to go under the bridge, there are line and hooks dangling everywhere. Some of the people are curteous enough to pull their lines and let you through, others start yelling and throwing things. I have had everthing from beer cans and other garbage to lead weights thrown. Last year a women on a boat was hooked in the scalp by a fishing lure and I have had close calls with lures myself. I have called the bridge operations number numerous times to ask them to call police when there people fishing from the bridge, I have also called police to file a report, still, last night June 8th, I counted 28 fisherman. Will they not act until someone loses an eye and sues the city?

  • Chatham Square New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Chatham Square

    I thought maybe I had become a curmudgeon, but after speaking with other friends and neighbors in the Chatham Square neighborhood, it's clear I'm not the only one who's sick of the ice cream truck. I don't know what the truck looks like, because I was afraid I would confront the driver (and not nicely) if I bothered to go out and check, but there is an ice cream truck that not only drives around with music blaring, but also has that horrible recorded "Hello!" bellowing well past 9:30 p.m. many nights, including weeknights. I make my children go to bed at 9:00 p.m., and I don't make it much longer, so this is a major annoyance, to say the least. All of my other friends who are parents find this after hours ice cream truck ridiculous and annoying, too. Is there some sort of noise ordinance against this? I would hate to egg the ice cream man, but I'm getting really close to doing it!

  • 68-94 Pine Street New Haven, Connecticut - Chatham Square

    Dirt bikes all over Clifton, Atwater, and Front Street this afternoon. Yes, we have legislation in Hartford to increase 20 fold the fee for reclaiming confiscated dirtbikes. But still no word on increased e ffort by NHPD to crack down on dirtbikes. Seems they are operating without impunity. Would be nice if NHPD said something publicly (hello Chief Esserman?) about the situation. Frustration building....

  • 2-26 James St New Haven, CT 06513, USA - Fair Haven

    The playground surface covering in Criscuolo Park, which is meant to be a soft, absorbent material for the safety of children, is falling apart. It is in extremely poor condition, especially under the swings, slide, and other play equipment. It is becoming a hazard as children can trip, fall and potentially injure themselves on this unsteady surface. It should be repaired/replaced to ensure the safety of park visitors.
