The Bound'ry Restaurant--which has been connected with past controversy--reportedly turned its sub woofers up after midnight one morning recently, waking Adelicia Condominium residents, even a number of floors above the street.
Calls residents made to The Bound'ry to ask the restaurant to bring down the decibels were reportedly met with cold indifference. Police were called out, but the cops merely drove by the the Bound'ry without stopping. Some residents are looking into the amplification codes to determine what the acceptable late night decibel level is in and around the Vanderbilt area restaurant.
Some business owners simply fail to understand that their indifference to the neighborhood has a way of emboldening neighbors to action. I'd like to see the residents grab a decibel meter and a camcorder to use in the future if they find out that there are stricter amplification codes. If not, then they ought to contact their council member, Erica Gilmore, and look into tightening up the code. Either way, they're going to need a strong homeowners association to win. Finally, they should also contact the community affairs officer in their police precinct to check into why the cops did not stop to follow-up on the noise complaint.
