I was trolling on another thread when I came upon mention of a heated topic that I used to be very much involved in, right here on these boards.
Summer is here, and for those of you who live in certain areas that will mean, NOISE. Ear splitting, bed vibrating, all night/all day noise, with speakers as tall as Kobe Byrant.
My solution was to move. I now live in a quiet area. I wonder has anything ever worked for anyone else aside from just having to go through the ordeal of moving away from the sources?
I will tell you what I tried before I abandoned ship:
1) earplugs both the expensive and cheap, which couldn't drown out the bass of those woofer speakers
2) calling/going to the precinct. It worked once and then never again
3) running the air conditioner on high to drown out the noise and getting sick in the process
4) talking to some of the offenders (and basically being ignored)
5)talking to a community board member (Nothing was done)
I want to know have any of you ever gotten a whole block or at least your noisy neighbor to turn the volume down?
Did you have to wind up moving? I felt like I ran out of options, but what happens if you buy a place and have a noisy neighbor or a club move in next door?
