This year, hundreds of families in Crown Heights will not enjoy a peaceful Yom Tov. They will spend the entire Yom Tov literally biting their teeth in aggravation and frustration.
This is not an exaggeration intended to get the attention of the NYPD, it is the actual truth.
For most of the 24 hours in a day, every day, including and especially on weekends, there is a group five or so inconsiderate individuals who blast their music so loud that the entire block vibrates.
The NYPD was informed of this problem hundreds of times, but they never fixed it.
They did make their presence very visible for 3 consistent weeks, for pretty much 24 hours. It was amazing! For the first time in a very long time, we were at peace. We were able to go to sleep without ear buds and without having to wrap our heads in layers of blankets.
But as many have predicted, the NYPD left. The problem wasn’t fixed, leaving us now bracing for a month of aggravation and madness. Literally hundreds of people residing on this block will have a miserable holiday season due to the failure of everyone who is in charge to act, including the 71st precinct.
Five inconsiderate people ruining it for hundreds of people on the block, and the 71st precinct is failing to make this problem go away.
If you cannot do something as simple as getting 5 inconsiderate individuals to stop blasting their music literally all day and night, every day and every night, then what good are you?
If you have any pull with the 71st precinct, there is no greater deed that you can do than to persuade them to take action on this matter.
If you are the 71st precinct, know that hundreds of families and individuals are suffering unimaginably and needlessly because you are failing to do your job at the most basic level.
