Actually, I found some valuable information on this page through
the Search Engine, by entering "Noise" as the keyword. The
musician's union released some interesting and helpful information
in an article titled "Music vs.Noise."
This happened to a friend of mine also, who was harassed
by his xenophobic neighbors while he was having a party cele-
brating his move. At 2AM on a Saturday, they pounded on his front
door and called him racial epithets while he was hosting a party
in his apartment. He rectified the situation by writing letters
to his landlord about it and shortly thereafter they moved out.
My neighbor has definitely harrassed us by the guidelines set
in the "Music vs. Noise" article, but my landlord has already
told us that we are in the right, that she is "put together with
crazy glue" and not worry about it. Insanity was never a reasonable
defense IMO for anything.
One more offense by my neighbor will warrant a letter writing campaign
from me. I would suggest the next time your neighbor complains that you
let her know that you have rights to privacy and comfort also, and if she
comes to your door to complain, that in itself is a form of harassment.
I don't know where you are located, but if you live in an urban area like
I do, tell your neighbor to move out to a log cabin in the Poconos
if she wants the kind of peace and quiet she is requesting.
