"Hey, you! Out there! I've got kids trying to sleep!"

Loud noises at night have triggered multiple incident reports filled with the exasperation of local residents in the last several days and weeks.  One Dean Street resident last night shouted "Hey, you! Out there! I've got kids trying to sleep!" to a worker banging his crowbar against a fender in the staging area at 10:30 PM.  In another case a resident on Vanderbilt reports a vibration so impactful artwork fell off the walls at 12:15 AM.

A resident on St. Mark's Avenue reports "intense pounding/crashing noises coming from the construction site as I write -- "and we are 3 blocks away with sound-proofed windows!  ... How is this permissable?"  St. Marks Avenue is uphill from the construction site and some rear windows have an unobstructed path for sounds emanating from the construction site.  The filer reports noise extending to 1 AM on Wednesday night.

Another filer from Pacific Street reports two "extremely noisy" nights in a row and that "the loud beeping sound of the trucks with loud bangs and booms stops me from sleeping. I can still hear it even with ear plugs."  The filer also complains about the "bright white stadium lights that shine directly into my bedroom window."  The lights are railyard lights installed to faciliate LIRR repairs that can only be executed when the railyard is dormant, but have been retasked by FCRC for use now by construction crews.  The filer asks, "Does anyone take these complaints seriously or will I have to takes matters into my own hands and seek legal advice?"

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 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?
