I've lived in my apt on Prospect Place & Underhill Ave for 7 years, and never heard any church bells ringing - until 3 weeks ago (Sept 21 2013)!
Where are they coming from? They peal each hour on the hour - with a chime for each hour. Why haven't I heard them before? Has some church just refurbished their bells?!
Most peculiar - but rather lovely. First time I heard them I thought I was hearing a neighbors cell phone ring, but they're too regular for that.
My apt faces and they sound like they're coming from Washington/Crown Heights area. Any ideas?
