Numerous Complaints About Brooklyn Diesel Concert

Well kids, it was a lot of fun but not everyone enjoyed the Diesel Rock and Roll Circus on the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. The concert, staged in a Big Top tent easily seen from the Promenade, started Saturday night and lasted until 2 a.m. Sunday.

According to the Brooklyn Eagle, both the Brooklyn Heights Association and 311 received numerous complaints about the noise. A BHA spokesperson told the Eagle:

“It was horrendous for people getting the full blast. I’m up to six pages of complaints. I’m just cutting and pasting the e-mails to present to Regina Myer [president of the Brooklyn Bridge Park Development Corporation]."

Apparently there is no protocol in place with the state or the Development Corporation regarding noise, as there is in the city section of the park.

T.I., O'Fracas, Franz Ferdinand, M.I.A., N.E.R.D., Hot Chip and Chaka Khan performed. More at the Eagle

They also left the area a complete mess. Paper, food and broken bottles are all over the streets and side walks. They've made no effort to clean it up.

That is an absolute lie. There were crews cleaning during and after the show.
