Attacked by unwanted noise? Report the noise at your fingertips! Make your noise visible to the community. Together, we can make our city sound right.

New York City is a loud city. 9 out of 10 adult citizens in NYC are exposed to excessive noise levels which is detrimental to mental and physical health. Through RightAvenues, users can report and spot the noise as easily as possible. Moreover, users can track their noise complaint reports on RightAvenues.


My Submission
Users can track their 311 noise complaint submissions on RightAvenues. Currently, helicopter noise, loud party/music noise and construction noise are available on RightAvenues.

Report Noise (blue icon)
Filing 311 noise complaints can be done seamlessly through RightAvenues. To report the Helicopter noise, simply select the real-time helicopter on the map. Helicopters flying below 2000ft (altitude) are visible on the map. To report construction noise, just select the construction hotspot on the map. Users also have the option to report the noise by tapping the “report noise” icon.

RightAvenues uses NYC 311 data to visualize noise complaints of each neighborhood. The bigger the dot, the more noise complaints from the same location.

Amazing app. Essential for everybody who cares about noise

Easy to use. You just have to find the noise on the map, click on it, and confirm the report 311 could really learn a lot from this app, report a noise in 10 seconds as opposed to 10 minutes:-)

Great and helpful app!

This app makes reporting noise complaints very easy and the noise clusters map is a big plus when maneuvering throughout the city! It helps you to avoid loud construction areas!
