Developer Ben Shaoul's conversion of the former Cabrini Center into residences continues on Avenue B and East Fifth Street.
Now, according to a Cabrini neighbor, workers have turned their attention to the surrounding area.
"Having jackhammered every inch on the ground floor of the Cabrini building ... they have taken to jackhammering the pavement around the building," the neighbor told us. "If it was loud before, it is even louder now. My floor, walls and entire apartment shake like a minor earthquake. The noise starts just before 7 and doesn't end until after 6."
The resident describes the noise as "unbearable." The resident has called 311. But. The resident wonders if there are alternate solutions for filing a complaint.
"They post no notices or heads-up to the surrounding residences and appear to have no regard for people who live in the neighborhood and have to deal with the constant noise," the resident said. "It remains to be seen if this is also acceptable for their Saturday permit."
The workers are back at the outdoor jackhammering this morning.
