Long shot - does anyone live by a fire station in a major city (e.g., NYC)? I’m a light sleeper & found a steal of an apartment, but worry sirens🚨will go off frequently between 11 PM - 8 AM (bedtime). How has your experience been?

Live near one in Chicago. Also near the El (train). It seems that sirens are only used when necessary at night (eg if there is traffic in the way). Neither wake me up any more… probably something that your brain would get used to. The trash truck on the other hand… never can sleep through that lol

I live close to a hospital and I can hear sirens loud and clear on zoom calls from WFH but sleep right through it at night. White noise on the Google home helps so that they don’t bother me when I’m in the process of falling asleep.

I considered moving into an apartment across the street from a fire department, it was a strong pass for me. I hung around at different hours to see how frequently and loud the alarms get. Heard fire trucks coming and going at different hours, including late at night. One of my coworkers also lives near one and you can hear the alarms going off during meetings, just as an anecdote.

I lived near one in Boston and sirens do go off all day but seemed much less at night. Eventually got used to it like anything else and didn’t wake me up at night

I lived near one in Raleigh a few years ago. The trucks woke me up all the time.

Heck I am a heavy sleeper but it affected me. I lived on the fifth floor @ 92nd and Lexington in a pre war apartment and woke up to ambulances and fire trucks all the time if I left the window open. With AC on it acted as white noise to block it out. Depends on the building and if you leave the windows open.

Yes omg- was horrible

I live one block away from a fire station in the Bay Area… never been woken up by a siren at night…but the traffic sounds are loud - i live in a downtown

Still waiting on PwC manager 1 cohort #s! Who's got them??

Anticipating extra $850/month for 6 months. What would be the best use of the money when already have a fully funded emergency fund, already maxing out Roth IRA, already maxing out 401k, and do not have an HSA option. Short term (1-3yr) goal is to buy a new home for growing family and use current home as a rental. Play it safe and add extra money to down payment or DCA into index fund or invest in current home repairs/upgrades to prepare for rental...other options?

When a job posting says 3-5 years of experience, does that mean a 3rd-5th year associate? Asking because there’s a bit of a discrepancy between the two, since if I graduated in May 2017, I’d be a third year associate this October, but only have two full years’ experience.
