:( about death&co:
I suppose I am one of those "neighborhood kooks"- I live above them. I have no complaints about the staff, they've been friendly. I just wish the owner would install proper sound proofing so raucous bar conversation isn't inflicted on me each night. I'm a college student and yes, I confess, "transplant". Called 311, attended the community meeting. I know this is a common problem throughout the neighborhood. What does one do?

Thanks for the comment, anon.

Jeremiah Moss interviewed the CB3 district manager and got a detailed how-to on the proper way to file a complaint against noisy neighbors.

Old Devil Moon space was taken over by three amazing guys (Northern Spy)...lots of good press from food world about their talent. AND they are really sweet and cool. I'd say the best of the new restaurant owners this year-if only SuperDouche had a 1/4 of their class, consideration and respect for our neighborhood. (and they haven't even opened yet)
Many blessings for lasting success!
