The number one issue affecting the quality of life in NYC is excessive noise, according to a survey of New Yorkers. While a certain level of noise is to be expected in such a largely populated, relatively small area, the noise levels in NYC can be excessive: the sound levels at an East 34th apartment building measured 90 decibels, while Upper West side traffic is nearly 80 decibels. To put this into perspective, normal conversation is around 65 decibels on average and for every 10 decibel increase, the sound seems twice as loud to the human ear. The all-around noise in NYC can make it difficult for tenants in office buildings to conduct business over the phone or even in personal meetings.
