Angry residents from Mineola showed up at the Garden City Board of Trustees meeting on February 4 to voice their complaints about the neighboring Verizon building that has been under construction. Mineola residents who live on 13th Avenue, which borders the Verizon site, claim that there has been a lot of noise coming from this building, especially late at night.
Mayor Robert Rothschild stated that this Verizon building, which is within the boundaries of Garden City, is being updated and there was an issue during the first week of February about noise emanating from the location. “There are generators being started at obviously the wrong time of day,” Mayor Rothschild said. “We have made contact with Verizon to make sure that they understand that it is unacceptable when they turn on the generator in the middle of night. We have told them that they will not do that again.”
