Noise will always be one topic of discussion here at ATNY. New York apartment dwellers have forever sought ways to leave the sounds of the city behind them when they come home. When the noise permeates into your bedroom, you really know you're in trouble...

Our bedroom is located in the front of our building. And while we live on an eerily quiet residential street, there are two noise problems that aflict this bedroom location and they both relate to garbage: The man who puts the building's garbage on the curb and the actual trucks that come and pick it up. These are about the only unpleasant street noises in the 'hood, but both happen in the early morning when we're in our bedrooms sleeping away.

What about you? Are your bedrooms perfectly quiet sactuaries or do you have noise issues, too?
