Did you see this in the NYT, about noise?

I had no idea that construction was allowed to start so early.

Nobody in the city in any neighborhood will get any well-deserved peace and quiet when people still lie and act as though this is a race issue instead of a common ****ing sense manners issue.

I was just re-reading this article from last year and wondered - have you ever turned to the city for help with noise? I've had noise issues, but the involved neighbors and solved directly.

I'm guessing that if 311 gets involved, it's harder.

Worse is shared Uber/Lyft/Via ride with girl on phone. Don't they get embarrassed other people hear their conversations? I never understood very extroverted people.
