New Haven - DixwellLoud motorcyles, especially during Summer months, constantly disturb and harass citizens of New Haven by operating with illegal and potentially harmful exhaust systems. Why doesn't the NHPD or the Dept. Of Health do anything about this?
New York is working on legislation:
1423 Quinnipiac Ave New Haven, CT - QuinnipiacKids in our complex and from Quinnipiac Ave meet customers at the entrance of the complex to serve their customers drugs
468 College St New Haven, CT 06511 - DowntownDrivers going both ways on College never stop at the pedestrian crosswalk at the Wall St. intersection. Yale Police needs to crack down on this, since it's only a matter of time before a pedestrian gets seriously hurt here.
253 State Street New Haven, Connecticut - DowntownWhen 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.
17 Lewis St New Haven, CT 06513 - Chatham SquareThis 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?

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.
805 Whitney Avenue New Haven Connecticut - East RockNeither we nor our neighbors can currently cross safely to Edgerton Park and Saint Thomas Church on the other side of the avenue. Cars are driving too fast for this residential area (no one is respecting the 25 miles/hour speed limit) and the next pedestrian crossings on East Rock road and across from the Eli museum are too far and no one uses them as a result. We have two children (2 and 5). We see old people, families, people with strollers and dogs cross all the time at this dangerous juncture. We very much hope the city can install a pedestrian crossing and slow down sign for the safety of all. Thank you.

let me start off by saying i am in no way opening this issue to debate whether abortion should be legal or not, so please do not use this space to preach one way or the other.
although i personally find the protesters at planned parenthood (and now often by the peabody museum) very offensive, i am reporting this issue on the basis of what is legally their right and what is not.
when i protested the start of the iraq war, the group i was with was told by an officer that we are allowed to hold a sign. but that since we do not own the property we were standing on, we could not affix signs to posts, or lean them on trees, or lay them on the ground, etc.
this is what the protesters are doing on edwards street and sometimes whitney. they spread at least ten posters on property that they do not own.
i'd like some clarification on what their rights are, and if we can ask them to tone down their presence if they are not legally allowed to take over the block.

*Elizabeth Nearing has given us permission to share her story*
Last night, our friend Elizabeth Nearing was in a car accident on her bike. Despite bruises and a severely bent helmet, she's ok — resting, but okay.
Elizabeth was on her way to present at the Pecha Kucha on her work as Community Engagement Manager at Long Wharf Theatre. Coming from Long Wharf, she turned onto Olive Street from Water Street. It was dark, so she was wearing a reflective raincoat with both front and rear lights. She was also wearing her helmet and riding far to the right of the lane.
As she was passing Wooster Street, a car going 25 mph turned into her. Elizabeth's helmet was severely bent and the car's windshield was cracked.
As a friend of Elizabeth, I am extremely grateful that she is safe.
As a citizen, I am extremely concerned.
Olive Street needs be a safer place for all folks — pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists — to travel safely. To start, there are a few core things that could be implemented:
-Better lighting for visibility
-Signage for bicyclists
-A stop sign at Olive and Wooster
-A protected bike lane
Would love to hear others thoughts and continue this conversation.
414 Whalley Ave New Haven, CT 06511 - EdgewoodGiven Whalley Ave's expansive width and high traffic volumes, and given business owners' desire to transform this space into an urban boulevard from a urban design standpoint, Whalley Avenue from the Fountain St intersection to Broadway would be the ideal location for a European/New York City-style physically separated bike lane. Ideally, this cycle track should spend most time on sidewalk level, as seen in the attached photo.
