Although it's a neighborhood publication, the articles listed may give you some help or suggestions.
Also, it may not pay off in cash, but it certainly might stir up enough concern: put a monetary value on the repose and peaceful enjoyment of your apartment that you have lost. You can send a certified letter to the neighbor, informing them that you intend to take them to small claims court to retrieve the cash value (make a list of dates, times and type of noise. Include this in your letter) if they contiue the disturbances.
Small Claims doesn't deal with "noise" issues, but they certainly do deal with claims for reimbursements of cash value.
One trip to the judge's bench may either stop the madness, or give you the foothold you need to get out of your lease.
