Reader Question Of The Week: The Chimes

I have been stumped, and now I am moving into madness.  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-  whole event lasting less than a minute, then, silence.

Suddenly, and without warning, nor pattern, it begins again.

Sometimes an hour later, sometimes longer.  WHY!??!  I have asked many Greenpointers and all we can agree on is that it is making us bonkers. Is this the point?

Help us.

Anyone have a theory about the source of this mystery noise? Perhaps it is coming from a church? Thoughts, anyone?

  2. I work from home a couple of days a week and have heard this. It’s very loud, probably some sort of construction. But it does have a weird sound, like almost a ringing, but more industrial than a church. I’ve seen people commenting on this on other blogs, but no one seems to know what it is.

  4. Is it just me or is it louder down by the sewage treatment plant?

Tell me what you're thinking...
