On the evening of November 9th, at the corner of Battery Place and West Thames, construction crew began to jackhammer up a ditch in the road related to Con Edison gas lines. The work was non-emergent. The crew foreman claimed that they had a permit to jackhammer until 10:00 PM. He refused to give the name of his construction company.
To say the least, the South half of Battery Park City was outraged by the noise. This is in addition to the daily earthquake-inducing noise from the pile driving machines over at the Route 9A “Tire Swing Park” construction.
