Suggestions for how to handle loud neighbors that throw club thumping parties with 50+ people? Weekday, weeknights until 4am. My husband and three young kids can’t ever sleep. Management does nothing, neither does the front desk. Moving is not easy because work helps pay for our rent in this building (Manhattan) and we would not be able to get this much space on our salaries alone.

Document in writing to mgmt noise issue in via email. Video record noise in your home coming from next door and time of day like on a cell phone clock as evidence and attach it to the email with the complaint. Highlight language in your lease and nyc landlord tenant law showing mgmt must provide you with quiet enjoyment of your unit and them not doing anything about the noise is a violation of your lease. Cc corporate and district Mgr about issue on email. Also make sure you document in email that you have submitted numerous complaints in the past and nothing was done.

You may have to demand that if mgmt refuses to eject your neighbors that you want them to pay to transfer you to another comparable unit in the building or to another property in the area if they have one to avoid living next to them and mgmt would incur the costs including moving fees...threaten to take legal action if the issue is not rectified by the end of the year.

Going to ask the obvious, but I assume you’ve talked to them? If that hasn’t worked, Report them? Get revenge? Soundproof your apartment?

Also pretty sure they’re breaking the executive orders on COVID so report them and they’ll be investigated. You should also report that you’re reporting them to management so they’re aware the police is investigating non compliance in their building.

Otherwise, move and pay more money somewhere where they will actually respond to tenants. Not a lot of options if you’re not willing to move though tbh.

Laying out the obvious - no need to be an ass. And good luck having police respond to a noise complaint in a timely manner. This is a no win situation.

Call the cops and mention to them that the front desk is doing nothing. Gatherings during covid are taken seriously have seen many parties in the buildings being shut down by the cops who front desk or tenants called.

I think gatherings indoors in someone’s home don’t count (we tried). It looks like noise complaints don’t register unless the police hear from enough people. I will try the other folks who live on our floor.

Form a coalition of the surrounding neighbors who are probably just as annoyed as you are. Have a coordinated plan to all start blaring music the morning after any party and don’t let up for at least a few hours. If possible, do it all the next day so they can’t sleep and have a horrible hangover.

You have a front desk and they won’t help??? Jesus... I’m sorry to hear that. I like all the suggestions above and you should give it a try. I’m often bothered by neighbor noise and I’ve taken some of the actions and I’d say sometimes they do work.

That’s pretty common in big cities. You should move to the suburbs, they’re more quiet.

How does work pay for your rent? Is that a perk at KPMG?

Not my job, my husband gets subsidized housing as a benefit. We would not be able to afford housing in Manhattan otherwise. He works long hours and his office is nearby which is why we’d rather not move. Things were fine these last three years until the twenty somethings moved in. We knocked on their door to talk to them a few times but they just ignored us. Feeling a bit hopeless, but will consult a lawyer for options.

At my uncles wedding in Madrid I remember lying down on the grass in the courtyard after their first dance and crying, my Dad came and saw me, laid down in his suit beside me and asked what was wrong.

And we just lay there as I cried, and then got up. Had a drink.

Said boyfriend left years ago, and now I have a wonderful man who just asked me what type of dance lessons I want for our wedding next year.

Don’t give up.
