Isn't making excessive noise a crime, if only a misdemeanor? If not, it probably should be. The city council could easily make it one.

That being the case, hearing the noise would be probably cause that a crime is being committed, and since it would take too long to chase a warrant for this type of situation, it becomes and exigent circumstance, where the police could demand to enter. If the law was written correctly this would likely hold up.

However, our pro-criminal mayor has no interest in enforcing quality of life laws.

He just keeps making quality of life crimes, not crimes anymore. Why? You figure out what group of people he is trying to protect and I'll give you a free hot baked Donut.
How is weed a quality of life crime?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but......

1. Summonses can still be issued!

2. Some parties, yes, there are some, are imposing cover charges! That means it could be treated as an unauthorized business! That means, in this regard, they could go in, correct?

3. If it's known that someone at the party has an outstanding warrant, (you'd be surprised how many 'violators' show up at parties!), they could go in, right?

Just asking. I'll let the lawyers answer those questions......!

I feel the same about people's cooking wafting down the hallway. Seriously, are you making curry, fish, and burning a truck tire at the same time?

OP aid trolling with this title. The only change is that NYPD won't be able to steal music equipment anymore. If cops walked into OPs apartment and stole his speakers he'd be pissed too. Especially since noise complaints are subjective. I've seen people have the cops called on them simply for having a couple people over talking

You mean ghetto behavior... Blasting music at odd hours of the night when people have to work the next day is not normal. That's excessive, and their equipment should be confiscated because they have no commonsense to understand that they need to be considerate of their neighbors. Having a couple of people over talking? Talking loudly and everything else that comes with it... The loud laughing, stomping of the feet and so on at late hours of the night. If you have thin walls, it's almost as if they're in your own residence, so again it's about commonsense. If you know you want to entertain and be loud, go to a bar or a club and do that nonsense.

I copied and pasted the exact title the NY Post used, but i'm the troll?

I don't even think half of those whose commented bothered to read the article in its entirety, or even really lived in the hood before....I don't care if you're in the hood every day for work, its different living there, and even more so if you have a family.

The point is, people who generally play their music loud without concern for others was doing it even before this article was written.

Lol yeah... you should know NY POST are professional trolls, racists, sexists, bigots, xenophobia and all sorts of other filth. They are propped up by Fox and Rupert Murdoch despite failing just so that they can spread their filthy vile fascist perspective to the New York working class

Only people that read them outside of conservative white Italian communities in states Island and other similar places are sports fans who for some reason think their sports coverage is good.

Everybody knows they are serial liars who distort the truth.

I get that it's annoying, but people have the right within reason to play music in their homes within reasonable hours. After midnight sure that's a problem, but before than this is the city. If you have a problem maybe dense urban living is not for you and you should live in Montana.
