This week's Talk Back post asked Patch readers how they felt about noise in Patchogue Village, which is a subject that comes up frequently at Patchogue Village Board of Trustees meetings.
In the unscientific poll, 53 percent voted that their neighborhood is too noisy, to 46 percent that it is not.
Below are what has been said so far on the subject, add to the conversation by commenting below:
While I love music, some of the waterfront restaurants have PA systems that are just too loud. This is an intrusion on the peace of the River. It is interesting, if I played my stereo that loud, the Police would be by in 5 minutes... but a restaurant can Blast music at decibel levels that are unsafe and get away with it... just about every night! wonder why??
Totally out of control... there needs to be limits where, are the people in charge of the town. I guess they are not in ear shot and losing sleep over this problem. Our homes are suppose to be a safe place a place to regroup and find peace. People live on and around the river and we are forcing them away. The village is not doing what we voted them in to do... Why?????
