All residents of our co-op have the right to the “quiet enjoyment” of their apartments. This means that we should all take care not to make excessive noises or create disturbances that interfere with the comfort and convenience of other residents. No one is allowed to play musical instruments, stereos, television sets, or other sources of amplified sound in a loud manner between the hours of 11 p.m. and 8 a.m. the following morning, if it annoys or disturbs other residents. At other times, please be reasonable in the level of noise you produce.
Similarly, construction or repair work and other noisy activities (such as putting up picture frames or assembling furniture) should be done only between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.
If you have a complaint about ongoing noise from a neighbor, please contact the managing agent. She will try to resolve the problem through negotiation with the offender. If you have a complaint about a disturbance or noise that is likely to be short-lived — such as a noisy party, a fight in the hallway, or a disturbance in the street — call the 34th Police Precinct at +1 212 927-9711 and they should take care of it.
