Manhattan: I grew up in a small town in West Virginia near the nightly stock car racetrack. The constant raa-raa-raaa of the souped-up jalopies drove everyone crazy for miles. I’d like to tell you about a situation near my current home in New York City that is making me physical ill. For 44 years, I’ve lived on W. 72nd St., near the intersection with Riverside Dr. For a month now, there have been two huge planks on 72nd — one on each side of the street. Twenty-four hours a day, 7 days a week, vehicles drive over these steel planks and, every time, make a loud noise. It’s a variation on Chinese water torture. To say the least, both my work and my sleep have been affected. I now find myself extremely nervous, physically ill, and unable to work. I have reported this: three times to 311; twice online to the mayor’s office; three times to Assembly Member Linda Rosenthal’s office; and finally, to the police station on West 82nd St. Please help.
