    In what surely must be a first, MTA officials will be making late-night home visits to residents of the Upper East Side apartments near construction sites for the upcoming Second Avenue Subway. This unusual plan stemmed from a meeting between MTA officials and home and business owners around 72nd Street, many of whom were incensed about the veritable plague of ongoing noise has kept them up at night and driven customers away during the day. So MTA officials want to experience firsthand what it's like to be harried by the sound of jackhammers at 2:00 in the morning, presumably in order to better assess whether they need to change their approach to the new construction project.
