Very annoying noise!
« on: May 16, 2019, 11:55:14 PM »
I'm on 73rd, between 35th and 37th, and every night this week, we've been plagued with a loud humming noise between around 10 pm - 1 am. I walked around a bit last night, and I could hear it all the way to 71st and Roosevelt. It was maddeningly difficult to locate the source, but it seemed to be coming from the southwest. Does anyone else hear it? Do you know what it is?  It's so damn annoying!

I'm on 74th and close to the corner of 35th and haven't noticed, but last night was one of the first nights in a while that I had my windows open. I tend to be oblivious to this kind of thing until someone points it out to me. I'll pay attention tonight to see if I hear anything!

I am guessing it is the subway structure painting work that is being undertaken. Sheets of metal have been installed under the subway from 82nd St eastwards. Apparently this is to remove lead paint.
