Unfortunately that's just how a lot of New York City apartment buildings are constructed. My neighbor has complained on more than one occasion that my computer is too loud. I can tell when he gets up in the morning or when the people above me come home each night. Hell, I can even tell whether the woman below me has ber bedroom light on or off. Putting rugs on the wall is one solution. Playing your own music is another.

: Hi. Thanks for replying. Unfortunately, the wall is between me and my neighbor (and no one else in the building). Iím in an apartment building and the neighbor is another tenant in the building. No one else is able to hear the noises (which are normal-level stereo/TV sounds but are still very disturbing). I have spoken with my neighbor, but he says yes heís sensitive to the noise and then Iíll hear him singing along to Abba at 9 a.m., or heíll leave his TV or stereo on all night. Iím getting earache because I have to sleep with earplugs every night. I just feel I have to pat a huge rent for an apartment that is deeply flawed, but thereís nothing at all I can do about it. Can I report my landlord to local authorities? It feels as though thatís my last resort.
