    The events are great, but the noise level is much too high for the coop apartment owners who live near the park and are coming home tired from work. There should be no megaphones allowed. It is so disturbing.

    • Sonja DeBrosa says:

      I couldn’t agree more, Larry. We should call 311. The MGPA might not know about it.

    • mgpalliance says:

      Sonja is correct. It is a good idea to call 311 for any noise complaints. The Marcus Garvey Park Alliance does not program all of the events in the amphitheater so does not have the authority to control the noise level. You should also be specific as to where the noise is coming from. Mega Phones are not used in the amphitheater so what you are hearing may be coming from another area of the park, most likely the basketball court. Keep in mind sound permits are required and are issued by the 25th precinct. All 311 complaints are forwarded to the 25th precinct who does have the authority to control the noise level. If you determine that the noise is coming from the basketball courts the Marcus Garvey Park Alliance would be happy to speak to the organizers on your behalf and will also share your complaint with Parks Department officials.
