AY Watch: Noise plagues residents outside zone where impacts were anticipated

Adding to coverage of construction noise impacts, Atlantic Yards Watch points out:
  • Some affected residents live outside the zone identified in the 2006 Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) where significant noise impacts were anticipated. Sensitive receptor locations in the 2006 analysis (locations like residences or open space where human activity may be affected by project generated noise) do not account for more recent conversions from commercial to residential in the vicinity of the project site.
  • None of the residents complaining have received notice of the noise attenuation measures offered by Forest City Ratner Companies (FCRC).
  • The specific noise attenuation measures offered as mitigation (double paned windows and air conditioners) are already in place and residents report they are still kept up at night.
