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.
