Will You Ever Adjust to City Noise?
In a city like Chicago, with long, cold months where the windows are constantly closed, it’s easy to to forget there’s even noise to be heard. But now that we’ve gotten a taste of spring and opened the windows, I’m reminded that city noise in the summer — sirens, car alarms, trains, construction, people — is a different story. Will we ever adjust? For me, the answer is yes. After 10 years, I’ve adjusted to city noise.
