Developers are apparently giving New Yorkers headaches, according to a rise in noise complaints filed with the city.
A report from the state comptroller says the number of complaints logged with 311 more than doubled since 2010.
For example, at the Chapin School on the Upper East Side, residents have called and complained more than 100 times about the ongoing construction.
Many of the complaints come before or after normal construction work hours, which are between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Special permits from the buildings department allows work after hours, but the comptroller says those permits are not being given out responsibly.
