  • 82 Court St New Haven, CT 06511 - Wooster Square

    The bridge on Court Street between State and Artizan is unbelievably dark. The same bridge on Chapel has 2 lights and yet far more people travel via Court from downtown to get home to Wooster Square. Please fix!

  • 374 East St New Haven, CT 06511 - Mill River

    On my way home from work yesterday I came across this!

    5 off road (2 dirt bikes and 3 quads) barreling down East Street at top speed.
    They blew through the light, causing oncoming traffic to screech to a stop as they continued to tear down the street at top speed.

    I managed to take a picture as fast as I could.
    What can be done about this???

  • 253 State Street New Haven, Connecticut - Downtown

    When I drive down State St. (which is often) I see this graffiti tag that reads "Supa-Thug". This needs to be removed ASAP, it is an eye sore to the community, especially in downtown New Haven, I don't thing we need to be looking at the words "Thug" when we are around town; it's disgusting that whomever is responsible for the property hasn't fixed this already.

  • Humphrey St New Haven, CT - SOHU

    We have a beautiful tree canopy on Upper State Street but unfortunately it makes the busy restaurant corridor very dark at night.

    It would be really excellent to have a low level street lighting like other commercial districts in the City.

  • Wooster Sq New Haven, CT - Wooster Square

    Yet another 8 cars (at least) in the Wooster Square area have been broken into with crow bars early in the morning of 11/12/10. NHPD were on scene as at least 2 perpetrators were witnessed fleeing the area. The Wooster Square area has been under siege by this rash of car break-ins over the past several months. Enhanced NHPD patrols are needed between 12a and 5a to catch the thieves/vandals in the act. Countless vehicles have been hit in the past 3 weeks, despite no visible items or other items of value in the cars.

  • 59 Court St New Haven, CT 06511 - Wooster Square

    I created a new issue. Each incident should be a new issue in my opinion. This helps demonstrate the seriousness.

    Tonight, between 6 and 6:30 pm there was another mugging on Court
    Street between Olive and Artizan Streets near the Friendship House
    apartments. 2 men slammed a neighbor to the ground and took his
    wallet and cell phone. Coincidentally, a coworker of the victim was
    on his way home at the end of the incident and called the police.
    Details are still coming in and I will let you know when I have a full
    description of the attackers.

    Please, do not walk home after dark on Court Street on the north side
    of the street. Walk with a friend, do whatever you can to stay safe.
    Go on SeeClickFix.com and comment and vote to have the muggings
    STOPPED!!!!

    Court And Olive 06511 - Wooster Square

    From the New Haven Independent. This all seems to continue.
    At 8:15 p.m. on Thursday, four men mugged someone at the corner of Court and
    Olive Streets. Two of the muggers had handguns. They took a cellphone and a
    black wallet with $25.
