I love how, instead of simply providing an explanation, the NY Waterway ferries passed the buck.

Re: Stop the horns? Yikes!

Amazing! They live in a major urban center, are fortunate enough to be able to afford to live close to the water, but they want the whole city to be quiet so they can sleep!

Kinda reminds me of the people around here who buy the cheaper property near the airport flight path and then complain about the airplane noise, and want to restrict flight operations of a major international airport!

I'm out there with you. Or when a farmer subdivides and the new people complain about the farm next to them selling to a developer. For a lot of farmers, that's their retirement plan.

But in the city aren't there car noises all the time? Car horns, delivery trucks, etc? What's one more horn in the mix?

Re: Stop the horns? Yikes!

If you read through the comments.. Supposedly the horn blowing is recent. The CG came down on the Ferries after a Kayaker was run down

Ah. When this was first posted earlier, no one had yet left any comments.
