  • 238 Elm St New Haven, CT - Downtown

    Last year, in their Downtown Bicycle and Pedestrian Gap Analysis (http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/TrafficParking/pdfs/GapAnalysis2009.pdf), Nelson\\Nygaard Consultants recommended a physically separated bike lane—or cycle track—on Elm Street. How would you design such a facility? View a 3D mock-up of two potential designs here and offer your suggestions. Don't like it? Download Google SketchUp to your computer here: http://sketchup.google.com/ and then download my drawings here: http://www.box.net/shared/z8e1db4ssq and give it your best shot.

    For cycle track design guidelines and best practices, have a look at this design guide from the National Association of City Transportation Officials: http://nacto.org/cities-for-cycling/design-guide/cycle-tracks/
    and this report from bicycle-oriented transportation planning consultants at Alta Planning: http://www.altaplanning.com/cycle+tracks.aspx

    Google is planning to build, and test ultra-high speed broadband networks in a small number of trial locations across the country. They will deliver Internet speeds more than 100 times faster than what most Americans have access to today with 1 gigabit per second, fiber-to-the-home connections. Google will offer service at a competitive price to at least 50,000, and potentially up to 500,000 people.

  • New Haven - Dixwell

    Loud 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:

  • 468 College St New Haven, CT 06511 - Downtown

    Drivers 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.

  • 986 Chapel St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Town_Green

    A former comedy club, this Yale-owned storefront at 986 Chapel Street has been empty since before Bruce Alexander came to New Haven in 1998. (Out of fairness to Bruce, Yale didn't take ownership of this piece of the Schiavone portfolio until 1999.)

    C'mon Bruce, you're a real estate whiz. I know you and Yale can do better, -- especially given the fact that this is such a great location. Renovate the hideous storefront into something respectable, and then I bet you'll find a good tenant in a hurry.

    PS -- It is not okay that next door at 976 Chapel is also a permanently dead storefront. I understand that it is such a big space that it's tough to rent. However, lower the rent if you have to! This is prime real estate, and the neighborhood deserves another lively retail tenant.

    Bruce's bio here:
    http://www.yale.edu/about/alexander.html

    email Bruce, (politely please), at bruce.alexander@yale.edu

  • 286 York St New Haven, CT 06520 - Dixwell

    I recently traveled over 1.5 hours to go to an Apple store in the West Farms Mall. I think this would be an ideal location, with shops open late already the hours would be perfect. Coffee houses next door, ABP on the corner - parking down York Street and on Broadway.

  • Chapel And High Street - Town_Green

    I have seen cops on a daily bases park illegally underneath the stop light, get out of their car, walk into starbucks, get a coffee and walk out to their car and leave. I am pretty sure that they are only allowed to break the law for reasonable reasons or if they are doing something positive like stopping a crime. I don’t think getting a coffee or going to News Haven applies to this situation. I would like it stopped, and for our cops to start obeying the same laws they enforce on us.

  • 1073 1123 Chapel St New Haven, CT 06511, USA - Downtown

    This police cruiser pulled up and blocked half of the intersection at Chapel and High. Then the two cops went to starbucks to get their coffee.

    I wish I could get away with parking like that.

  • Whalley Avenue George Street, Norton Street, Edgewood Avenue, Sherman Avenue - Everywhere in New Haven - Downtown

    This problem is increasing and dispersing itself across New Haven. I went to KFC a couple of days ago and noticed some teenagers loitering in the the restaurant. The workers seemed upset and noticed that not only were the teenagers loitering, but were also insulting customers, being obnoxious and basically driving customers away. When I left the restaurant, I noticed that the problem was not secluded to the restaurant but its a problem everywhere. These teens are standing by corners at late hours and blatantly loitering everywhere. Just recently I watched as a youth was arrested for standing in the middle of the street, throwing empty bottles at cars driving pass. It's really getting out of hand and I'm tired of not wanting to take my children anywhere because of it. It's not fair. I pay my taxes, I work, I take of my children and I'm not depending on anyone but myself.
    Even when the police stops and tells them to disperse, they simply move to another corner. I've watched as they laugh at police. Most of them have no respect or decency. The cornerstore near my home had to close because of the same reason, the endless loitering and chaos. Also, the shop was robbed repeated by "boosters". I think there should be a curfew for these teens. It's unfortunate but I think that's what it comes down to. For those who are trying to better themselves, I think if there's a curfew, they should have documents from their jobs or schools to prove why they are walking home after 7pm, or something like that. I can't even let my son ride his bike to his friend's house, which is only a block away because my neighbor's ten year old son was robbed by a group of teenagers roaming the street. They took his bike and the milk he went to the store to purchase for his mother. It's not right and it needs to end.
    I think arresting them is not enough, people say blame the parents, then maybe the police should start giving the parents tickets too to send the point home.

    Drivers rarely yield to pedestrians on this busy downtown street.

  • 199 Elm St New Haven, CT 06520 - Downtown

    A mid-block crosswalk across Elm Street between High Street and College Street is the only realistic way to end jaywalking on Elm Street as far as I can tell.
