: Ok so they are banging so hard on the floor one night at 9pm
: that i went up there and said "Please stop the banging, this
: is much too late for you to be doing such heavy noisy work in
: a residential building" They reply, "Well we are working".
: What work they could be doing in a doctor's office that causes
: them to have a need to move furniture around like that all day
: is unfathomable to me.

: After I asked them to stop at about 9:10pm, they were so noisy
: for the entire next hour that it was unbelievable, so I finally
: had to go up to the landlord and ask him to tell them to stop at
: 10pm.

: The next morning I noticed that the light fixture in the living-
: room (a flourescent light fixture, large but light weight) had
: partially come out of the ceiling about 2 inches in one corner.
: One could see the screw just started falling out of the ceiling.

: Do I need to file a police report about this?

NO, it isn't a police matter, yet.

: How do I officially protect myself from any possible problems that could result from
: what they are doing upstairs?

Read the Noise section on Tenant.Net; read also about writing complaint letters.
read other noise advice : use search here; use search on T.N; use search on the internet.

if their lease requiress 80% floor carpet, insist on it.

get ammunition: call the Zoning board and/or Dept of Buildings: is it legal to operate that kind of business in that building? try the NYC site , there's some info and zoning maps.

ps: my doctor moves a lot of stuff around every time I go: weight scale, x-ray machine, ekg machine, etc, etc, etc.
