Pianist's Upstairs Neighbor Can Make Lots of Noise Too

New, 21 comments

Perhaps composer Jonathan Breit was on to something when he was sued by his upstairs neighbor for playing the piano incessantly and told the Daily News, "This is definitely an Upper West Side problem." Now another lawsuit is brewing in another fancy Central Park West apartment building, although this time it's the piano player doing the suing. Concert pianist Laura Leon claims that her upstairs neighbor in 327 Central Park West is retaliating against her for practicing by "harassing her" with a noise that sounds like "a bowling ball being dropped on your head" at all hours of the day and night, the Post reports. When asked for comment, the neighbor replied, perfectly, "I wasn't aware of any of this."
