Gov. Kathy Hochul is signing a bill today forcing the Metropolitan Transportation Authority to produce reports each year detailing its efforts to reduce noise across their system — which comes after a Coney Island condo complex made some noise about the nearby subway’s impact on their quality of life.

“Public transit should enhance New Yorkers’ quality of life, not disturb it,” Hochul said. “This legislation will ensure New York City Transit is prioritizing communities’ concerns as our subways roar back to life and New York’s comeback continues.”
