Hartsdale residents say loud noise from grate in roadway impacting 'quality of life
Some Hartsdale residents say a loud banging in their neighborhood has been keeping them up for years and nothing seems to help.
They say they are kept up by a loud noise made when cars drive over a grate on Hartsdale Avenue.
Josh Berish has been dealing with the issue for about three years. He says when he contacted Greenburgh, they told him it’s Con Edison's jurisdiction.
Con Ed has made some fixes, but Berish says they last a few hours to a couple weeks with the worst in late May.
"It sounded like an aluminum bat hitting a metal pole, it was terrible,” Berish says.
He says it took too long for crews to come out. It sounded a lot better, but two weeks later the sound was back.
Berish says it’s especially hard for his family since his wife works from home.
"Things are going to make noise in the street and it's fine, but when it starts to affect your quality of life, I think something should be done,” he says.
Berish hopes Con Ed will get some outside help and give him a number to get someone back right away as many times as needed until it's fixed once and for all.
"We're not asking for the world. We just want a little bit of peace and quiet,” he says.
Con Ed says it is sending someone out again to investigate and the grate may need a new design, which will take some time.
