The 5 Noisiest Brooklyn Neighborhoods


Noise complaints typically correlate with a high quality of life: the tonier your neighborhood, the more likely you are to phone the city and complain about somebody making a racket. And noise is something as a culture we typically pawn off to the poor: you don’t have to pay a lot of money (and least not as much) to live close to the airport or the highway or the train tracks. Still, if you know a better barometer of what areas are noisiest than complaints lodged with 311, as reported by Gothamist last week, from data released by the Bloomberg administration, I’d like to hear it.
