TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — Preliminary pile driving for the new Tappan Zee Bridge has begun and has been a real jolt for some residents.
Among them is Richard Harvest, who has a large, red crane looming near his backyard.
“We have a train track that’s right underneath us and it’s louder than the diesel trains that are going by,” he told WCBS 880 reporter Sean Adams on Thursday.
From Fred Gross’s deck, he has a breathtaking view of the river and front row seat for the construction. He said his house was shaken by the pile driving this week.
“It’s shocking, the noise itself,” he said.
“It was very, very intense banging, continual pounding,” Sherry Alperstein of Tarrytown told CBS 2’s Lou Young.
