Loud commercials from the Oculus

Loud music was coming from the roof over the plaza in front of the Barclay's Center. It was a loop of parts of songs performed by artists scheduled at Barclay's Center in the near future. In other words, a commercial. Their staff told me they planned on playing this loop (at a lower volume) starting two hours before their events. I have not been told when this music would be turned off.

Amplified sound was illegal

Priority: -> normal
State: -> Active
Client: -> Public
Assigned: unassigned -> Peter K.

It turns out the amplified sound this filer complained about was illegal according to DEP.  Barclays Center did not have a permit to play amplified sound outside the building.  To get a permit, they must go to the 78th Precinct.
 
DEP made the statement at the Quality of Life Committee October 16th at Borough Hall.
