NY Construction Sites Must Lower Noise During City’s Quiet Time Under New Law

Construction done at odd hours will have to turn down the volume under a bill passed by the City Council on Tuesday, the NY Daily News reports.
The legislation sponsored by Councilman Ben Kallos places stricter limits on construction within 200 feet of a home before 7 a.m. and after 6 p.m. on weekdays, and any time on weekends, as per the News’ report.  “New York City may be the city that never sleeps, but that shouldn’t be because of after-hours construction that wakes you up,” said Kallos (D-Manhattan). “Noise is the top complaint in New York City.”
