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.

2012-02-22 LIRR maintenance truck parks on sidewalk & greatly reduces safety for pedestrians or those with wheels

Location: 
NE corner of 6th Ave & Pacific St
When: 
February 22, 2012 - 2:18pm

2012-02-22 LIRR maintenance truck parks on sidewalk & reduces safety for pedestrians because the sidewalk on this peculiar NE corner of 6th Ave & Pacific is extremely narrow with the gate & access ramp into the rail yard is always wide open & makes pedestrians step into the active Pacific St, this even occurs when no trucks park on the sidewalk.
