BHB HQ received a few queries from bleary eyed Cadman Park Plaza area residents curious about the loud soundcheck shaking them out of bed this morning (10/5).
BHB commenter “Mompom”:
We were woken up at 6:28 am by them testing the sound equipment. Anyone know who to complain to about this? That is unreasonably early.
Super annoyed with whatever org was sound checking their PA at 6am for their Cadman Plaza Park event. "G'morning, 311!" Cc @bkheightsblog

The answer: The American Heart Association’s Brooklyn Heart Walk, which began at 8am there.
The Heart Walk is the American Heart Association’s premiere event for raising funds to save lives from this country’s No. 1 and No. 4 killers – heart disease and stroke. These diseases claim more than 813,804 American lives a year. The Heart Walk is designed to promote physical activity, heart-healthy living, and it creates an environment that’s fun and rewarding for the entire family. Thanks to all our walkers, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you!
