Interesting thread on noise and apartment renovations in this forum.... Of course, there's the typical "this is New York, so get used to noise or move" response from some of the commentators.
This is even more interesting, because the tenant confirmed that there was also an asbestos problem with the renovation. The hoops the tenant had to go through will make you depressed.
