New York, the City That Roars 24/7, is Forced to Quiet Down

ars if their reggaeton favorites, for example, can be heard at fewer than 6.5 meters (25 feet) from their vehicle.

Think you're keeping your big sound to yourself?

If New York authorities deem your iPod or other personal music players too loud in the clearly audible category, fines range from 50-175 dollars. If your car alarm goes off at night for more than three minutes, your car can be towed and you may receive a fine of 350 dollars.

Alan Fierstein, of the Acoustilog company that helps deliver soundproofing solutions, said he thinks the new code will be effective.

"It will work. In New York, I am sure that the code they have just enacted is very powerful in terms of being able to give tickets to violations because there is much subjective whim available to an inspector to do so.

"It is certainly one of the strongest noise laws in the country," he said.

Where before there was less clarity on what was potentially illegal, "now it's more at the whim of the inspector and that is written into the law. It says that many noises, if they are plainly audible, it is a violation," Fierstein said.

Decibel limits for some noises are being reduced, he noted. For an air conditioning or any air unit, the maximum level that a person can hear in their apartment is 45 decibels. Under the new code, it will be reduced to 42.

While music venues can make a plan to reduce noise in case of violations, there is no such chance for other everyday violators -- for example, people honking car horns in traffic.
