Having lived in apartments all my adult life. You never win a noise dispute. I currently live below a young lady with three young children; I endure her working til 4a in the morning, her babysitters coming and going and "hanging out on the balcony", children knocking over furniture, running, jumping, throwing things on the floor. In the beginning when she moved in I tried the friendly approach, doesn't work. I live in the small town of Piermont in Rockland County, where this young lady knows the entire police force. They are part of the problem, they visit from midnight until approx. 5:30a. My super has told me his hands are tied, everyone feels sorry for this young "lady" because the has the three children, primarily because of relationships with the local police, blah, blah, blah. My only choice is to move, which isn't a choice at all. My apartment is in a great location between Weschester and Manhattan. It's affordable, it's not a closet, nor a basement dungeon. So you learn to deal with it! Learn to hate cops and the moron and her kids who live upstairs and accept the fact that yes indeed nice guys/gals do get the short end of the stick! It's a sad fact but true! Affordable housing is limited in Rockland for singles, no better in Westchester county, forget about NYC! So just deal with the noise!!!

: Thanks for the advice. Did go up there and speak to them. But they said they will keep the boots on because the floor is carpeted eighty percente. Now they are stomping purposely.
