Noise impacts resulting from project creation or operation.

Two plus minute delay added to fire truck response time

Location: 
Dean Street between 6th Avenue and Vanderbilt Avenue
When: 
December 8, 2014 - 3:30pm

Fire trucks exiting the fires station on Dean Street do not have any routes to emergencies using the legal direction of traffic which are not impeded by construction closures.  Even some of the routes against traffic are now impeded.  In fact, four of five routes out of the fire station are now impeded by construction.

Justin Timberlake music extends down Dean Street half a block

Location: 
Dean Street and Dean Playground
When: 
December 14, 2014 - 9:30pm

Justin Timberlake's music was easily discernable half way down Dean Street between Carlton and Sixth Avenues.  The music could be heard in Dean Playground.  It was not just the bass.  If I knew his music I would have been able to name the song.
 
Who manned the console for Justin Timberlake's concert?

I believe the date of this incident report is correct, but unfortunately in this particular case I cannot confirm it.
 
 

Undisclosed weekend work and equipment idling

Location: 
West side of block 1129
When: 
November 22, 2014 - 1:58am

The contractor Russo worked on equipment inside block 1129 on a Saturday although no weekend work was disclosed in the relevant Two-Week Look-ahead.  
 
There was very loud metal on metal banging and several pieces of equipment were left idling.  
 
The equipment was idling for longer than 3 minutes.  I did not have time to call 311.  The idling continued throughout the course of the 2 videos that follow, both longer than 3 minutes.

Large construction trucks pick up/deliver? at night on block 1129

Location: 
Block 1129
When: 
October 24, 2014 - 9:55pm

Large trucks arrived and appeared to pick up trailers stored on block 1129 in the arena parking lot.  The engines were loud, there was hammering and the back-up signals were triggered.  I can't find any disclosure of nighttime work/deliveries on block 1129 at night in the two week look ahead.

Large construction trucks arrive and remove chains at 5:50

Location: 
Barclays lot along Dean
When: 
October 24, 2014 - 5:50am

I was woken up when large construction trucks arrived at the Barclays Center lot at 5:50 this morning. Their back-up alarms were triggered when they backed up to the fence along Dean Street. Once they arrived they removed the chains from their load with their loud engines on. There were four or five trucks in all. There was a lot of activity at the site and shouting.
