Neighbors report that oscillating high-pitched whine was particularly disturbing to sleep, and that a visit to the arena security desk--as recommended last week by the arena community affairs manager, who wouldn't provide a phone number--was uninformative and fruitless.
One neighbor wrote on Atlantic Yards Watch: "There is some type of construction machine running around the clock. The nose is constant and the is buzzing our windows. I have been hearing it since 7am this morning and is making my head spin."
Peter Krashes of the Dean Street Block Association commented: "I visited the area yesterday and the noise is coming from a large generator placed on the pad next to the arena. It appears to be similar to the generators used by MTV during the VMAs. It is loud."
