Imagine you work your 10 hour day, 35 minute commute from midtown to Carroll St eat dinner and finally settle down at 9pm and you open your windows and "oh there's that damn music again". Now try and relax while it continues till midnight or up to 2AM. Everyone would agree we would love to see the neighborhood expand and prosper, but when ambient noise from live bands starts invading your home forcing you to close your windows at night and then hate the neighborhood you moved into 10-15 years ago its time to stand your ground. Sound will travel further especially late at night in this otherwise quieter part of the area and irritate homeowners and renters on Degraw and Sacket St. Maybe those dozen families don't mean much but they deserve quiet at night too. Here is an example, Clover Club has a 3 piece band playing on occasion, I live a half block away and can still here it over a busy Smith Street.
Lifelong NY'r didn't move here from Ohio suburbs. Im just a homeowner who lives the first part of my post everyday. Just sayin'.
