Reader Question Of The Week: The Chimes
I have been stumped, and now I am moving into madness.Â For MONTHS now, every couple hours (sometimes more) I hear a “chime” go off in Greenpoint. It repeats itself maybe 4 times in a row, and goes away-Â whole event lasting less than a minute, then, silence.
Suddenly, and without warning, nor pattern, it begins again.
Sometimes an hour later, sometimes longer.Â WHY!??!Â I have asked many Greenpointers and all we can agree on is that it is making us bonkers. Is this the point?
Anyone have a theory about the source of this mystery noise? Perhaps it is coming from a church? Thoughts, anyone?
