a general problem throughout New Haven, but particularly bad on Orange in East Rock. sidewalks are for walking, roads are for cars and bicycles (not to mention there is a bike path on this road).

please restripe this awful road.
76 Edwards St New Haven, CT
The stretch of Edwards between Whitney and Orange is in really rough shape. There are roughly 50 pot-holes in this small stretch of road. Cars are swerving to avoid them - which is quite dangerous for traffic and really dangerous for bikes and pedestrians. Please help!

Parallel parking cars come inches from hitting locked bicycles here daily! The rack requires bicycles I be positioned perpendicular to street & sidewalk. This results in wheels that protrude to edge of street, and occasionally obstruct sidewalk.
Humphrey Street New Haven, CT
Once again, several bicycles were stolen on Humphrey Street this weekend, by gangs of bike-riding kids working in broad daylight, in full view of neighbors.
This is more than an annoyance. These kids often enter people's yards, so it could lead to other property theft or the risk of physical confrontation.
These thieves thrive on the neighborhood's plentiful supply of bikes left out unsecured by East Rockers who are too trusting (or too stupid) to lock them up properly. So please help remove the incentive for theft by taking your bike inside, or locking it securely (U-style lock) where it can't be seen from the street. If there are no bikes to steal, they won't keep coming back to steal them. If they don't come back, they won't be poking around in your yard. And if they aren't poking around in your yard, you're less likely to come home to a freshly burglarized home.
If you see a bike theft under way, say something, then report it. If you see the gang of youths (easily recognized because several be riding one bike and steering another one) take pictures and video with your cell phone camera and make sure they see you doing it. Even if you can't catch them in the act, hopefully they'll think twice.
Let's stop being such easy targets.

There is a particularly bad, deep pothole in the bicycle lane. It is located at the beginning of the Humphrey Street lane, near the intersection with Orange. According to the city's Bike Plan, Public Works has an obligation to keep designated cycling routes smooth and free of debris.

There are at least 10 pot holes along Humphrey Street between Whitney and Orange Street in New Haven that need fixing. It is dangerous for bike and motorcycle traffic because they are so numerous. It looks as if the city is planning to few up by the apartment building towards Whitney but they have not marked white fixit areas in the middle of the block where I live. Please consider repaving the WHOLE street as was done last summer on Humphrey between Orange and State street.
