I live in the Bronx over a barbershop that plays music token

Customer Question

Hello, I live in the Bronx over a barbershop that plays music token loudly. Short version- pleas have not worked. They also have 2 pool tables. Not sure if all activities there are legal. What can I do legally to get some tranquility? Thank you.
JA: Because employment law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?
Customer: NYC in NY
JA: Has anything been filed or reported?
Customer: No. We've apprised the super and landlord of the situation.
JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?
Customer: We're in a residential area and this is a business. I suspect the laws are different between commercial and residential areas. The situation has been ongoing.

You can do the following:

1. file a police report complaint.

2. if others bothered, have them do so too.

3. community board complaint.

4. lawyer cease and desist letter.

You could also sue for nuisance and an injunction, but the above options are normally sufficient.

Kindly let me know if that is clear and acceptable.
