Noise Complaints

In Gowanus, there's an burgeoning clash between an arts center that's been open for 28 years and a two-year-old hotel. The Gowanus Arts Building, home to rehearsal space for performers and studios for visual artists, tends to emit some noise while the creative types (like a drumming ensemble) are doing their thing. Meanwhile, across a parking lot, guests at The Fairfield, a Marriott property?one of several hotels to open in the gentrifying industrial area of late?expect bucolic silence alongside their polluted canal. Will the arts hub's inevitable desire to make a little noise win out over the hotel's duty to protect guests' eardrums? Stay tuned. [City Room]
