"I feel your pain. When I was growing up. I lived in an apartment in Brooklyn over a Chinese laundry a block away from the overhead trains."
YES! The schmuck's letter got forwarded to someone who knows exactly how life works. Thirty years ago, the Battery was a desolate wasteland outside of business hours. And before the landfill from the World Trade Center, Battery Park City simply didn't exist. (About 1/3 of lower Manhattan is actually landfill out from the original shores.)

So when some johnny come lately complains "Gee, I moved into a seaport and its noisy"...ROFLMAO. They should give the poor bstard two free tickets for a Nantucket Sleigh Ride and see what he's got to say after that fun.
