  • 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???

  • Fair Haven New Haven, CT, USA - Mill River

    Along the East bank of the Mill River between State Street and Humphrey Street along the Western property line of the old CT Transit site lies a great trail opportunity with little upfront cost to tax-payers.

    Readying this connection for a trail will pave the way for recreational access between East Rock Park and Grand Avenue.

    We have spoken with City Plan and City Engineering and it appears that this is a reasonable request and use for the river shores.

    We have also spoken to State Representative Roland Lemar who supports the project and believes that with interest from resident's demonstrated we can get a trail funded here.

    If you would use this area recreationally or would like to see this trail created please vote up this issue and share it with neighbors. As organizers we would like to see that there is real interest(50 or more votes might convince us :) from the community before we organize to push the issue to the State.

    If you have thoughts in support or opposition please add them in the comments!

    Let's make the Mill River something New Haven can be proud of again.

  • 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.
