It is loud and really annoying, but I have an easier time tolerating it since it has not happened in a long time. I remember back a few years ago when they were doing runway construction almost every week for months, and I thought I was going to go crazy from the noise.

Rather than us have to look on a website whenever we suspect noise is about to happen,
 an email list, where we could be notified the exact details of the times and dates, AS SOON as they plan to do the work (NOT 10 minutes before).....this would be the minimum of civic responsibility from the agencies involved.

People need to plan their lives dammit.

Yes, I agree.

i've gone through two of those periods in my time here. the first (i forget if it was '97 or '98) was literally six months, and we were on 75th between 34/35, which seems to be right in the middle of one flight path.

i do worry that the "improvements" going on at LGA will result in more of this (maybe runway lengthening) a few years down the line, but fingers crossed i'm just being fatalistic.

and fully agree about the suggestion re: email notifications. it would seem like a simple effort and earn some good will from the community.

we go through this every few months, but if someone is going to complain about a problem, there should also be a solution. do we:

shut LGA down entirely?

forgo repairs?

or.... ?

I don't think submitting a complaint requires also presenting a solution. When I submit a complaint, which I just did, I do so to make my voice heard. I'm concerned if we don't complain when there is excessive noise that the powers that be are going to expand LGA or change rules, or reroute planes, or whatever, and make this noise consistent instead of occasional. I don't think we can afford to appear complacent.

It's always better to document your complaint.  You can always say,  "I told you so.".  At least they should let people know and  so you can mentally prepare.

Funny how when there is a tennis game going on, La Guardia finds a solution for them.  What became of the Town Hall meeting outcomes on this issue that took place at PS69?
