Manhattan

Life in the city that cannot sleep
"Matthew Price finds one aspect of New York rather hard to cope with.
The honking is possibly the worst, or the thundering.
Well, that and the rumbling, screeching,
thudding, clacking, droning, whining, whirring and wailing.
Not to mention the barking, bleating, bickering and bitching.
You get the picture...
Noise is said to be the number one quality of life issue for New Yorkers
