The impact of third-shift work at the arena site, 11:30 pm: "Loud hammering, sawing, welding, yelling, and all sorts of incredibly loud noise"

From Thursday night, July 5, as recounted on Atlantic Yards Watch, from a poster who preemptively takes the name "Not.A.NIMBY":
Location:
Barclays Center site
When:
July 5, 2012 - 11:14pm
311: 185447938
Loud hammering, sawing, welding, yelling, and all sorts of incredibly loud noise. Did not even start until 10.30 PM, so this isn't them working late to finish something, this is them deciding to start working very late at night. In a time of year when residents (and this is a heavily residential neighborhood) have their windows open, they should not be performing heavy and loud construction at almost midnight. They're still going strong at 11.30 PM, with no end in sight.
On June 25, workers began third-shift work at the arena site, involving elevator system electrical work, as well as work on the facade and roof. There was no indication of noise impacts.
