Barclays Center Brooklyn construction jackhammer overnight @ 100db:


I understand that construction noise is part of every city. But literally overnight jackhammering? 12am - 5am? with no attempt to attenuate the sound? at sites along the side of avenues where traffic is already diverted and the jackhammering could happen during the day or at least 6pm - 11pm? multiple 311 service requests have yielded no results. any environmental lawyers out there?
