Social Distancing Violation on N Bennet Street

This 311 user says, “I need to know what to do about groups of young people gathering on rooftops without masks. At 46 N Bennet St in the North End there are 10-15 people a handful of nights a week not wearing masks and not social distancing. I know the police are managing a lot right now, but is this something that should be happening?”

Fireworks on a Wednesday

“Fireworks going off in the north end for yet another night. At 9:45pm on a Wednesday.” The original 311 post can be viewed here.

Response: Case Closed. Case Noted. The service request has been sent to the Boston Police Dept. Fireworks are illegal in the state of MA and should be reported to the police directly. For future reference, something like this should never be reported on this app. This is for non-emergency, non-crime related city service requests. 9-1-1 should always be called for something like this.

Helicopters Over the North End

From 311: “NBC helicopters and other news outlets need to stop hovering over the north end! Marty Walsh, this is worse than the god damn fireworks! We know, we know. Hanover street looks different now that people can dine. Send camera crews on the ground. There is no reason to hover over the north end for long periods of time. Enough!”

  1. Red paint on red brick, less obtrusive. Evidence of another idiot. Maybe the fireworks are someone trying to take out news copter. This might not be the problem, but the solution.
