Shortly afterwards, a neighborhood friend mentioned that she thought the flight patterns had been changed and planes were now flying right over Carroll Gardens.
And yesterday, a reader sent me this message:
Have you and your readers noticed a huge uptick in airplane flyover noise? I moved to this neighborhood because it was quieter in that regard than most other Brooklyn neighborhoods, but that seems to have suddenly changed as the landing routes to LGA are now overhead, with planes as frequently as every other minute because of the New Generation GPS. (Communities were told this technology would lessen aircraft noise, but of course that was a lie.) I don't know why exactly landing patterns changed recently, do you?
Those affected should file a complaint (it's very easy) at either: http://www.planenoise.com/panynj/daPRAbr9/ or 1-800-225-1071.
(you can (and should) complain every time it disturbs you)It is important that the neighborhood react swiftly and loudly to the new disturbance. This is a big issue that can affect health and property values, and the PANJNY and FAA need to hear from residents."
Of course, we have always heard airplane noise here in the neighborhood, but not like in the past week. Have you noticed?
