Excessive noise pollution is not just hard on the ears, but is also linked to higher levels of stress, hypertension and heart disease.“Noise affects us all,” said Ben Wellington, a visiting assistant professor at the Pratt Institute in New York who has studied noise for his data-driven urban planning blog, I Quant NY. “We’re a lot of people crammed into a very small space.”Mr. Wellington has used the city’s 311 data to map out the noisiest neighborhoods. The noisiest was, not surprisingly, Midtown Manhattan, the epicenter of business and tourism. Other loud neighborhoods were the East and West Villages, both popular night life destinations, and Lower Manhattan, where nonstop building has overtaken the physical devastation of the Sept […]
