would anyone know if I have the super of my building party in the backyard every shabbos-sunday with friends and family, has a swimming pool, barbecue, and blasting music… is it considered a violation for unauthorised amplified sound? or is a permit only needed for equipment bigger than a typical stereo? (there is a big shul with windows to the backyard-they had to cover up their windows for tznius reasons) I complained to my landlord thats its disturbing my shabbos afternoon naps but the problem wasnt taken care of…
i also live in a building with a noisy neighbor, what are my rights? does anyone know? thanks
You need to call 311 and file a noise complaint. The police cant help you and 311 will take about two weeks before they even look at the case.
Without knowing where you are, how can we possibly know which set of local laws to apply to your case?
what will 311 do?
listen to you venting! 😉
