It won’t be long before there will be an explosion of 311 complaint calls due to the noise that will be emanating from Pier A.

It’s unbelievable that a 7:00 AM – 4:00 AM liquor license was granted to a place that is within a stone’s throw from at least four large residential towers.

No one batted an eye at the Poulakakos explanation at last night’s meeting that they want the 4:00 curfew so as not to “push out” any customers coming in at 2:00 or 3:00 in the morning! What about the thousands of residents who live only a few hundred feet from the soon-to-be tourist trap?

Those large French windows that will be kept open all summer long will indeed make it a very “porous” (as Poulakakos described it) noise situation indeed. And that’s not even mentioning the party boats that will be docked outside.
