From the Daily News:
Astoria's ever-growing popularity as a hot spot for outdoor cafes, restaurants, bars and trendy clubs may be a boon for business owners.
But the constant flow of cars and chatter from the street is giving the locals some headaches, making it the top neighborhood for noise complaints in the borough this year.
"We hear drunken brawls and people yelling at 2 and 3 in the morning," said Donnie Marks, a longtime resident who lives near the busy 30th Ave. commercial strip. "Cars speed down the street burning rubber."
During the first six months of the year, noise in Community Board 1, which includes Astoria and parts of Long Island City, sparked more than 3,400 complaints to the city's 311 line.
The majority of those calls came from people complaining about loud neighbors.
Not surprisingly, Greenpoint and Williamsburg also had a plethora of noise complaints.
