Barclays Beefs

Barclays officials have installed 1,800 "baffles," a.k.a. decibel-quashing acoustic ceiling panels, in order to dampen the racket that seeps through the arena walls during concerts, disturbing area residents. Neighbors complained about the noise during shows like Kanye's and Jay-Z's, and as a result, the venue has also implemented a "sound concierge" meant "to help bass-heavy artists calm their noise." And anyway, a Forest City Ratner staffer warned community members that this won't be a common occurrence: "This isn't happening during Barbra Streisand." The baffles were first uncovered by Atlantic Yards Report. [NYDN; previously]
