: : : Can anyone tell me if there is a law covering whether or not an establishment that plays music can have large open windows intended to create an open environment (like an open cafe), particulary late at night (11:00 pm to 4:00 am).
: : : Thanks in advance for any help.
: : have you read the info under NOISE on the home page of Tenant.net? Did it help?
: Yes, I've read it. It is just a few articles regarding noise pollution without any specific info. So, no, it didn't help.
Excerpt from NYC DEP: Dept of Environmental Protection:
DEP's 24-hour Help Center is the nerve center of the agency. Around the
clock you can find Customer Service Agents at work helping New Yorkers
solve environmental problems. Example of calls agents handle include
those about running hydrants, backed-up sewage, pipe leaks, smoking
chimneys, loud noise from bars, broken or leaky water meters, and much
more. The Center's function is to help New Yorkers find the person or
department at the DEP that can help. To report water, sewer, air, noise,
asbestos, industrial waste, broken and leaking water meter problems, call
718 DEP-HELP (337-4357) 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
One of those articles said DEP was responsible for enforcing the Noise laws, so this is from the official NYC website (environmental in the dropdown menu). Hope it helps.
