Noise

Noise impacts resulting from project creation or operation.

Nighttime Noise

Location: 
Staging area opposite 618 Dean Street
When: 
March 29, 2012 - 11:25pm

Very loud banging began at 11 pm in the Atlantic Yards staging area opposite 618 Dean Street. When I went to check, a construction worker was whacking skids on a flatbed truck with a crowbar, creating a loud reverberating noise that echoed throughout the neighborhood and violated our peace and tranquillity at the time our children were attempting to fall asleep. In the past, my son has informed me that noise from the staging area opposite 618 Dean Street in the dead of night (3-4 am) has caused him to wake up on repeated occasions.

Intense Nighttime Noise

St Marks Ave between Carlton and Vanderbilt
When:

Intense pounding / crashing noises coming from the construction site as I write -- and we are 3 blocks away with sound-proofed windows! The noise began at around 10:30pm. Last night (March 28) it began at the same time and went on until 1am. How is this permissible?

I can see the whole yard from my 4th floor walk up. I kept hearing a very loud buzzing vibration. Looked out the window to see sparks flying. I yelled: Really? Its past 11pm! And they actually stopped - but they will probably start up again soon.
