The jack hammering between 10pm and 4am is out of control

I have filed numerous 311 noise complaints about the jack hammering going on between 10pm and at least 4am every evening for the past 5 weeks. I can't sleep. I had a guest leave my apartment at 3am a few weeks ago to stay in a hotel because of the jack hammering.

This exception to the construction noise rule should not have been approved for jack hammering that goes on for hours on end every single night. It is torture for those of who live in the area.

Noise related to nighttime use of staging areas

Although no construction is taking place on the eastern end of the Atlantic Yards footprint, contractors performing night time work move in and out of block 1129 (between Carlton Avenue, Vanderbilt Avenue, Dean Street and Pacific Street) with equipment and materials. Noise from these activities began to be reported in July 2001 (see 172), and in September of 2011, a representative from Forest City Ratner explained to AYW that night time work requiring access to the block 1129 staging area was expected through August 2012.

Noise from late night street work at 4th Avenue, Atlantic Avenue and Pacific Street

Several community members have submitted reports of noise from jackhammering at the intersection of 4th Avenue and Atlantic Avenue (see 271, 273, 274, 275, 276, 277, 288, 289, 295) beginning in late August 2011.  Some report filing 311 complaints dating back to July 2011.

probably my last entry since it appears that the overnight jackhammering has been approved and will not stop for about a year until all is said and done. continuing the reporting to 311 is, therefore, a waste of my time.
looking at soundproofing my windows which is expensive, but so is losing my sanity.
