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.

  1. Yup! I was waiting to see if my zip code made the list. Indeed it is one of the most noisiest areas in Brooklyn. If it’s not police sirens, its fire trucks, or someone blasting loud music from their car or apartment window. Dogs barking or people arguing at the top of their lungs 2:00 in the AM. My zip code for 28 yrs. I’m a vetern!
