I'll Tell You The Title of the Post Once the Train Passes

Forest Hills Gardens residents are pissed about the LIRR train noise again. Apparently it's gotten worse since they cut down trees along the tracks.

Congressman Anthony Weiner (D-Queens, Brooklyn) said in a statement that a sound barrier should be installed along the tracks. “The LIRR has long been an uneasy neighbor to the residents of Forest Hills Gardens. We need a hearty sound barrier where the crumbling wall once stood.”

You know Congressman, the sound gets emitted on both sides of the tracks. How about a sound barrier on the north side too. Or better yet, how about people realize that they bought an apartment next to a railroad.
