Blasting music at odd hours of the night when people have to work the next day is not normal.
Ok you have to recognize that playing music until midnight on weekends is very different then playing music at three am on a Tuesday night.

I agree that this is a problem if your blasting music on a Tuesday night at 3 am. However in my experience very few people do this.

The people that make noise complaints are often grouches who can't deal with some friends upstairs playing music at 10 Pm on Friday. I'm sorry but that is my right! And I pay tons of money in rent for the right to do so.

You also can do what everyone else does and that is take your broom and bang on the ceiling until the person stops. They will stop or turn down the music often because that noise of someone banging on your floor annoys them. You can also knock on their doors, that works too often.

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.
What are you the gestapo? Taking away people's speakers, really? That is people's personal property they moat money for. The state and the police have no right to my personal property.

And no if you have problems with normal facts of life in dense urban living situations then maybe living in New York City is not for you. You can move to Montana where there are no other neighbors and you don't have to worry about you know people using their homes to invite friends over because that's well within their rights when they pay rent

That's interesting. I didn't know I moved to Harlem... In any event, I'm speaking for the people who live in ghetto areas. I myself don't live in a ghetto area so you can scratch Harlem off of your list. I have friends that live there, but their building isn't ghetto, just the surrounding neighborhood.

No it isn't your right, you must be a selfish self centered Millennial.

What does turning your music loud really do, seriously. What its no good on volume level 7 but it is on 15?
Not only do your neighbor not want to hear your music... ever....You have to remember that NYC is a 24 hour, 7 day a week city. People work weekends and all hours. You blasting you music at 10pm may disrupt your neighbor who has to be up at 4am for work. What is wrong with people, when did everyone become me, me me and so damn selfish and not think how their actions affect others.

This is such a simple fix: avoid the ghetto. If you choose to live in the ghetto, this is an inevitable issue you will face. Loud "music" is the #1 sign of ghetto behavior.

We recently had a ghetto family rent from one of the homeowners in our community. When the garbage started and the cars with out of state plates appeared, we warned the owner. He blew us off and called us racist. When the garbage increased, theft from cars happened, and loud music started, we fined the owner. He complained. When they stopped paying rent, he admitted we were right all along.

If it walks like a duck, it's a duck. If you can't admit that, you're probably a leftist who cries racism all the time.

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.
Ok...so since you know so much, point out the errors in the article then and show me where the lies are, because I don't know. Enlighten me. I simply copied and pasted the title of the article because that's what was there for me to copy and paste.

You know what, it's actually not that simple. That's all people can afford, I believe. And when you're not used to that environment, well they really step in it.....
