NEW YORK -- It's always among the top complaints in New York City.

Noise comes from a variety of sources but construction projects are supposed to be regulated.

Contractors and builders can apply for after-hour variances which permit work overnight and on the weekends.

Permits are granted for public safety or when weekday construction would impact traffic.

Near Hudson Yards, neighbors have had enough of those noise from construction and road work. They say they haven't slept well in months.

The city has issued issued permits for work near 33rd Street and 9th Avenue since last March 2016.

Neighbors were able to meet with representatives from the Port Authority and Brookfield which are working in the area. The Port Authority agreed to do more work during weekend days.
