Is Hoboken too noisy for you?
Is noise in Hoboken acceptable for a city?
Hoboken411 reader Ariel shares her thoughts about the amount of noise the mile-square city has.
Do you agree or disagree?
Crazy noise at all hours in Hoboken!
“I live on Madison and Observer hwy, and am fully aware I am living next to the fire station and signed up for it. However, on numerous occasions (all the time) the fire dept. does “drills” at really late hours where they go out with sirens blaring, go around the block and come back which then warrants back up beeping. This whole process takes about 15min and happens about 5x a night at least.
Another noise complaint would be the sirens from cop cars. If its 2am and no one is on the road, do we really need the sirens? Wouldn’t lights be sufficient?
Lastly, the garbage trucks collecting glass (see Hoboken411 Video)… the garbage trucks themselves don’t make all that much noise and that’s at about 11pm, so I totally understand that’s fine. However, the people collecting glass do so at 4AM! It sounds like someone is breaking my window, that’s how loud it is. Why are they doing this at an insane hour?
In other cities such as Princeton, NJ they have “quiet times” so that people can eat dinner/sleep/watch tv in peace.
Thanks for the consideration,
