Re: Stop the horns? Yikes!
Battery Park City never was cheap housing, from the day it was built it was premium priced. Sounds like Wolfgang has way too much money if he could move down there with no knowledge of the neighborhood (the Battery, duh!) and now finds it inconvenient that he's living in a working harbor. Of course, the real luxury buildings all have double or triple-glazed windows to keep out the noise.
Maybe Woflgang needs to move next to an elevated subway line, so he can complain about those damned trains rumbling by all night instead?
