Last week the New York Times asked for comments on noise complaints. Loyal BHB reader and commenter Andrew Porter had this response, which the Times approved:
The noisiest things here in Brooklyn Heights are the helicopters, whether NYPD one hovering over accidents on the BQE, Brooklyn Bridge or other trouble spots, or the ones passing by en route from LaGuardia to Newark, which don’t bother to fly over the East River as required by law.
Recent changes in flight paths of arrivals and departures from the Wall Street helipad have lessened the noise, to some extent, from that source of many problems.
Anyone have a different complaint?
