Noise complaints to NYC 311
From 2010 to 2014
Is the city suddenly noisier under Bill de Blasio? Maybe, maybe not. This is just the complaints to 311 so yes, more people complained about noise in 2014 than 2013 . It could be that the city is noisier. But it could also be that people think de Blasio is “their mayor”, and they complain in the belief that filing a complaint with 311 will make a difference. Or, the opposite – they restrained themselves during the reign of “their mayor” Bloomberg and are now giving vent to their pent up complaints. Only certainty: it’s a noisy city and more people are making a noise about it!
