Another exaggeration from KaaBoom. He has never been to New York City, according to his own posts. He has not lived in Denver for 20 years---interesting and he is the expert on the differences in noise between these cities. Come-on, this is all BS. I have lived here for 31 years and I have lived in NYC, in Manhattan, in Queens, in the Bronx---New Yawk is much louder than Denver, everyday of the week. The traffic is not the only noise; the people are louder; the smells are obstrusive; you can hear the brisk movement of the pushy crowds. In addition, millions of native New Yawker moves their hands and shoulder, fast and furious with an auditory assault of expletives, punctuated by a flavorful flatus--believe me, much more noise than crickets in a country night.

Reading stuff on the web and looking at videos will never, that is NEVER give you the real feel, smells and noise of NYC. I am tawking to ya...getoutahere!

Ironically I am sitting a hotel room in SoHo right now (Canal St and Lafayette). There is a really loud jackhammer going outside where some work is being done, and lots of horn honking to go with it. It's 10:31 PM. Loud, as usual

Last night I was sleeping at my house in Denver near 23rd and High St in Whittier, and I woke up because a fire truck went right by our house with the sirens on. That hardly ever happens, usually it's dead silent!

I still like some things about NYC but quiet? No.

I already DO LOVE IT HERE! The weather? NO HUMIDITY. Gorgeous skies. BEAUTIFUL fall colors. The People are FRIENDLY AND SAY "HELLO." NO crowds AT ALL! Almost too empty. NO crazy people stomping around with an agenda to be a MILLIONAIRE or a celebrity. SO EFFIN CLEAN!!!! NO NOISE!!!! YAY!! No horns honking. The light rail? It simply goes "ding ding" like a cute little trolley - not an EAR- SPLITTING BLARING HORN HONK like the NYC subways. And the MOUNTAIN VIEWS?? OMG. I had to pull over once because I realized I wasn't paying attention to the road! lol.
My only concern is that this amazing secret won't last forever!

Default Noise Level in Downtown Denver

I am thinking about moving to downtown denver. I like downtown a lot. But I do have the concern about the noise level as I am a really light sleeper. This may sound funny. Every time I need to move to somewhere I will need to look at the map to see how close the train is. I do see the train track is close to downtown. If someone lives close to downtown and is a light sleeper, can you please suggest if the train blowing the horns every hour at night when you are sleeping? How is the noise level in this area? I appreciate your feedback.

How bad is it in Denver? What intersections of downtown are the most quiet? Is noise pollution a problem there?
For the most part downtown is pretty quiet. Now, the areas that have the bars might get a bit noisy on busier nights, or when the bars let out

But its nothing like NYC with sirens and horn blasting, just drunk people on the street.

ok LAST UPDATE: Except for the train noise occasionally and its horrendous sound when it buckles (sounds like a bomb going off) there is nothing but peace and quiet here in downtown Union Station from what I have seen. There really is NO comparison between here and NYC. None at all. NONE. The intersection of 3rd and 96th in NYC where we lived truly was a NIGHTMARE. Just thinking about it now I laugh. There, sirens and horns going bonkers ALL DAY, EVERYDAY. Here in Denver? I haven't heard a horn blaring ONCE. NOT ONCE! And sirens? I think I've heard two - maybe.
