Burg Ain't Feeling the Noise


Williamsburg and Greenpoint notched the most noise complaints of any section of Broooklyn during the first 6 months of 2009, per the Daily News, with 4,300 noise complaints coming into 311—a hair less than the number of complaints during the same period last year, though Councilmember David Yassky says in 2008 most such calls were about construction din. This year, by contrast, most of the complaints were about noise coming from neighbors' homes. Community Board 3's neighborhoods, which include Bed-Stuy, had the second-highest concentration of noise complaints (3,882), while CB14, which covers Flatbush and Kensington, had the third-highest, 3,362.
