NEW YORK (FOX 5 NEWS) - What's keeping Anne Marie and Everett Young up late at night? Not a single worry but a construction site where the jack-hammering begins around midnight, rattles through the early hours of the morning, only to stop around 7 or 8 o'clock in the morning. The Youngs live across a soccer field from the construction. They sent Fox 5 a video taken from a window that shows what it sounds like. Is it loud? You be the judge.
The noise comes from a garbage transfer station the neighborhood has adamantly opposed. Fox 5 has covered this extensively. The city responded to our questions about what the Youngs are dealing with saying the ramp they're working on now requires the FDR Drive to be shut down as crews work above. And that they're only allowed to shut it down overnight -- thus the midnight to 7 a.m. jackhammering. But even so, they are monitoring noise levels and that so far the readings are within strict limitations set out in their contract.
Everett said that he would like to see the readings of the sound levels.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in 2017.
