  1. The streets and sidewalks are a mess! Broken sidewalks,major potholes ion the streets plus we need white crossing lines Endicott and thatcher cars come around corners no regard for seniors What is the city doing so far nothing!

  2. I realize that the homeless need a place to crash and unwind, but play areas for children should be off limits.

  3. While we’re at it, can we get crosswalks painted at Prince and Salem? I know the excuse is something about the height of the curb in front of Bova’s but….I don’t see that getting fixed after it being discussed for over 2 years so…let’s just paint the darn crosswalks!

  4. You would think that the city officials who boast that 2 million visitors/tourists visit the North End each year would make it a priority to keep the neighborhood clean and make repairs ASAP.

  5. Looking at the two pictures above, it seems like the fake tile bricks are better than the real bricks. If you lose some tiles a lot less likely to trip and fall. The issue with bricks, once water seeps under the bricks and freezes then thaws you end up with and uneven sidewalk. They are a pain to shovel because once they rise, the shovel jams on the bricks that stick out like a tooth. The patch fixes don’t work because once there is a low spot, that is where the water collects. There needs to be a surface under the bricks that is more than just dirt.

  6. It’s a shame, it seems to be getting worse. The more reporting of these incidents, doesn’t seem to get the message to the city officials. You see more homeless people making a home in the North End, since it seems no one is going to bother any of them. I’ve seem two fools drinking out of large vodka bottles right on Hanover street, right in public view. There seems to be no enforcement of any kind, more so in the middle of the morning. There is more to enforcement then tagging double parking. This Mayor announce that he open city hall doors to illegals, why don’t he open the doors to the homeless and clean up the North End, which sadly really is getting to look bad. It really is a shame.
