I need Help Please- Anyone!!!
Hello everyone- I need some advice. I just moved in a apartment Feb 1, 2006 in New York City. A 1 bedroom apartment. Oh my god the noise level is unbelievable not only in my apatment but the whole entire builing. First the neighbors upstairs-3 people living in a small 1 bedroom apartment. One wakes up in the morning and has to let me know she is going to work by making so much noise over my head so of course I have to wake up the same time she dose. I am a very light sleeper.
Her young teenage son sleeps in the living room now when he comes home from where ever he has been lets say around 6:30 pm he likes to blast his music in my bedroom with extra bass. Now mind you this is a small apartment. To my shock I complained to the super he went but stairs and told this kid that I was complaining about the bass from the radio and if maybe he would put the radio on a stack of books maybe I wouldnt hear it that much. What the hell is that? Now after I had enough I called the landlord which he was very nice and told me he would take are of the problem. Just yesterday around 8.30pm my husband and I were wathing tv and there goes the music on. Since my husband isnt home when this happens and usually at work he gets to hear me complain all the time. So since he was off he went upstairs to asks them to lower down the music ( living room and bedroom are very close)The teenager apologize ( didnt speak much english I think they are from Europe- said he would turn it off- also my husband told him if they could try not to drop things on the wood floors cause it makes a loud bang sound. The hard walking is driving me crazy.
To make a long story short. I am very unhappy where I live now. The noise from the ceiling is driving me mad. I wanted to know if you put rug on wooden floors dose it help any? Do I have the right to asks the landlord to put rig on their floors ? Should I just move? The neighbors upstairs dosent seem to get the comcept that people live underneath them! Please help and thanks.
