any info on the extremely loud helicopter that has taken up residence late at night and in the morning a few times this past week? Where? Why? Surveillance? Copper chopper?

Mystery solved. Twitter user @yankees368 somehow tracked the helicopter reg N666NY to one hovering 5,600 ft over Atlantic and Flatbush last night.
A little Googling connected the registrant's address to Sky River Helicopters in NJ, who confirmed to me it was their Robinson R44 (and possibly a second helo taking turns) doing an evening-long traffic study for the DOT.
I'm checking to confirm, but guessing it's arena-related. Sky River had no idea, but they were super nice and forthcoming.
We can take our tinfoil hats off (for now!) - and probably thank Bruce Ratner for the excitement.
