NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) - If you pass the corner of Park Avenue South and East 29th Street on a Sunday, you might hear sounds coming from above.

WCBS 880′s Paul Murnane On The Story

If you do, you’re probably hearing a rooftop pool party at the Gansevoort Park Ave. hotel, WCBS 880′s Paul Murnane reported.

Neighbors say clothing seems minimal and the volume seems maximum, and they’re not too happy about it.

One hotel official told the New York Post that they try to respect their neighbors.

Some neighbors admit that the noise, especially the thumping bassline, has been dialed back, but two told WCBS 880′s Paul Murnane that she can’t help but feel the party inside her place across the street.

“It’s like a vegas pool party in New York City, which it doesn’t belong. You can hear it through the windows, through the drapes, through the whole apartment from side to side,” Corey Wilf said.

“My bed shakes. I feel the bass in my chest,” Jason Wilf said.

The Gansevoort uses the expression “get on top” to market the space.

Local say they’ll be all over this as many are convinced the party exceeds the legal capacity. The hotel said there is no safety issue there.
