from a neighborhood Yahoo group. Smart thinking with the film trucks, but please leave us 1020. Or come to Trivia Night! About the noise levels, may we suggest relocating to a non-university neighborhood or, gee, outside of New York City? Westchester doesn’t seem so bad.

As if we didn’t have enough noise with Fresh Direct and partying Ivies, we have film truck engines idling and adding to the cacophony.

Are they allowed to do this all night?

Well, you might try one approach that seems to work: go down to the street, take photos of the license plates and identifying info on the cab doors and truck body, and then ask the driver to please shut off the engines.

They will probably refuse – generating for lights and cameras etc. – but we might then file with the city’s film department, using the photos of the offending vehicles, and ask that they require organizations using our blocks and polluting our air and keeping us from sleeping to redo their operations. Or perhaps reimburse the residents for extra time and AC use we need to block out their noise.

Perhaps the city council nominees and candidates in the next election could be pressured to address this issue.

And of course the issue of inebriated students who think they’re on a 200-acre college campus where nobody expects to sleep.

If you really think it’s college students in the neighborhood bars, a police crackdown on fake IDs should do the trick. Most college students aren’t old enough to drink.

I was just guessing: from the shrieking and horseplay and voices I hear, it sounded like high school students, but I discounted that possibility. Of course the bar posts a sign requiring two IDs for entrance, but those around here long enough to remember the West End’s end might be excused for a bit of cynicism on that score.

Bucket of water or another noxious liquid out the window sounds like fun! I’ll participate 😉
