: my problem is overcrowding. my neighbors live in a apartment of two bedrooms yet there are about eleven people living above me five are children and the noise is at all hours during the day they run all over play with balls against the walls floors the screaming running and banging never stops.during the evening the adults start coming in moving furniture around this problem has been like this for years the rent above me is high so they have two families sharing the landlord will not accept my messages or even my dhcr complaints. plese someone help me and give me some advice thank you.

I researched this problem some years ago because I had a similar situation, and I said in a response to another person with a noise situation, the remedies are fairly lame and bleak, at least in New York. Unless, that is, your landlord hates the noisy tenants too. If not, you wind up fighting two people, and possibly losing. You can withhold rent or file suit, if complaints dont work.
One problem is that it has "been like this for years." It is going to be hard to deal with the situation if it has been going on for years.
