Ask Curbed: There's a Backhoe in My Backyard

A quick Ask Curbed break from the deep questions of broker life to ponder the actions of our friends with hardhats. A Curbed reader emails a question we hear often enough that it bears re-examination:

When is it okay, time-of-day-wise, for construction to take place? A building is going up behind my apartment and construction workers seem to be there all hours of the day.

Aren't there noise laws governing this type of thing?Get thee to 311, friends, and to the comments.
