If you do end up moving, consider living in Washington Heights. The walls of apartments up there are famously thick, and the neighborhood is therefore very popular with musicians.

Also be aware that there are "quiet" buildings and "quiet" neighborhoods, and other buildings and neighborhoods where people are much more loose about sound. That said, you may have to put up with someone ELSE's blaring salsa music or loud parties.

But if you've moved into a very quiet building, I'm not surprised that your neighbors are touchy about the sound. As much as you love your music, you are really "taking" something they're accustomed to, ie their peace and quiet. If you "give" back something out elderly neighbors, watch pets, maybe be willing to accept packages during the day for others who work "straight" jobs, I'll bet they'll cut you more slack.
