Stop Late Night Drilling!

Stop the loud late night drilling on the 2nd Avenue subway construction.

Why is this important?

Loud drilling on the 2nd Ave subway is waking Upper East Side residents at all hours, including children and infants. This is happening around the 72nd and 96th street construction now, but will come to other areas soon.

As long as the MTA is working "underground" it can drill 24 hours a day, no matter how loud or disruptive it is to residents. THIS NEEDS TO STOP. We have a right to the quiet enjoyment of our homes--a right to sleep.

To PUT A STOP TO LATE NIGHT DRILLING we need to deliver a public outcry to the MTA, as well as our elected representatives, who have the power to make a difference. Action like this helped put a stop to late evening blasting and contain dust from blasting, so this can work. Even 50 signatures can have a big impact.
