New York Shitty Day Ender: A Pile Driver Update

After many complaints from NCMC and the community, and a long conversation at our recent monthly NCMC-DEP meeting, the contractor has agreed to change the schedule for pile driving. For one more week (through January 27) the pile driving will continue in the evenings until 9:30 pm and then pile driving will be restricted to daytime hours on all future work. If you hear any pile driving after 9:30 pm next week, please send me an email and contact 311.

We are aware that the noise from the pile driving over the last month or so has been aggravating and troublesome. NCMC was not apprised of the pile driving before it started and as gone to some lengths to set up a process with the new Construction Management team to ensure that it does not happen again. And, thank you to those of you who filed complaints, those complaints force DEP to pay attention and help NCMC protect the community.

So we have one week left. In the meantime any and all 311 complaints should be forwarded to Ms. Holowacz via email at (at) verizon (dot) net. In closing, I want to thank Ms. Holowacz, the folks of NCMC and our Community Board Environmental Chair, Ryan Kuonen, for their dedication and persistence in making that our voice heard!

  2. So then it is not unsafe for the pile driving to go on while workers are at the plant. It was sonic inconvenience. Not surprised. Thanks NYS for generating interest on this smelly story.

  4. Great news! It s a great case study/lesson that a few our public servants could learn from.
