What NYC Does about Noise / AFTER HOURS PERMIT MAP

Community District Five is a bustling place where business deliveries, construction, and repairs to city infrastructure both day and night often lead to increased noise levels for everyone. 

The Noise Pamphlet and the Noise Code Guide are two resources that the Department of Transportation provides to explain what can be done when noise levels are too high, how the city monitors noise and what various city agencies do in response.
