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.
yes, a millennial

Playing music loudly in nearly any neighborhood has occurred for decades. The difference from decades ago to now is how the NYPD reacted to music related noise complaints. The NYPD was more civil when dealing with these situations years ago and it looks like now they are trying to bring the NYPD back in line to where it was years ago.

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.
Suburban and Rural area's have a similar code where instead of noise traveling a few feet it may be up to a few acres. If the Police are called out multiple times after responding to the same noise complaints within hours of the first warning, then fines are issues and the party is broken up.

Noise complaints are a difficult issue in NYC. On one hand, it should be understood and expected that in a hyper dense city like NYC there will be much more noise than usual. People should decide where to live accordingly.

On the other hand, I totally get that many people can't just choose to leave NYC. They could however try and find another apartment/house in a quieter part of town.

Ultimately, everyone in NYC should show respect to their neighbors. That means turning down the music when appropriate!

Interesting data, thanks.

Those maps provide a solid explanation of why I feel the way I do on this subject. Within a few mile radius of my house, the only time there is ever color on those maps is for dog complaints, which certainly don't portend a "noisy" neighborhood.

I'm happy to say that my neighborhoods are very quiet as well. Since both of the areas I live in are dog friendly, just about all of the noise complaints are due to barking dogs.

My apartment is the quietest I have ever lived in. I don't know if my neighbors can say the same?
