Reader Mail: Noisy East LA
Hoboken411 reader Max was a bit concerned about the noise coming from East LA this past Christmas. While using loud equipment doesn’t necessarily need a permit – the time of day which he heard it is a bit odd.
Work on Christmas Day?
“I walked my dog past East LA restaurant (6th and Washington) at 7am last Thursday (Christmas morning) and heard workmen doing construction work inside with a very loud circular saw cutting wood.
I thought it was unusual in that most of the lights were off except for the lights in the kitchen, no construction permit in the window and the fact that it was so early in the morning on a holiday. I feel bad for the people that live in or close to that building, not only do they have to listen to a loud bar until late at night, now they have to endure morning construction noise even on Christmas day.”
[411 note: I overheard at 5:55am this morning – that a Hoboken Police Officer noticed people in East LA “looking like they were doing some kind of work…” Hey – isn’t there a TIME LIMIT that they cannot start work until 8am??? The officer said they were “fixing something” on the floor – and “they check out.”]
