DINaction – the Dyckman-Inwood Noise Action Committee – seeks to alleviate problems of noise pollution in the Inwood section of upper Manhattan, particularly the area around Dyckman Street west of Broadway.
If you are interested to join DIN Action, please state your full name, your reason(s) for joining and your cross streets. Thanks.
We encourage DIN Action members to attend meetings, write letters, make phone calls, post flyers, talk with legislators. We have no specific requirements, but the more that we work together to achieve our goals of a peaceful neighborhood, the faster it will happen.
Members are encouraged to submit their comments, as long as they are respectful of the views of other members. Defeatist, "drive by" posts will be deleted and members will lose posting privileges. Let your guideline be: "Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness!"
Please log your noise-related calls to 311/911, which the moderators will periodically pass on to government officials. Noise complaints, per se, should be directed to 311, while drag-racing complaints are a matter for 911. In the case of drag-racing, a complaint to both numbers is appropriate.
To log a 311/911 call in our database, please go to the Homepage and click on Database in the left-hand column. Then click on the table entitled Noise Related Calls to 311/911. At the top of that page, click on Add Record. You will be prompted from there.
