“I get very frustrated that I can’t leave my windows open on a beautiful summers night [and] when I have to sleep on the couch in another room. The loud thumping music goes right through you and shakes our houses. I hear this thumping all over Providence. … I see cars with huge speakers in the back seat and trucks driving around just blasting music. We are all on edge. I have neighbors who have moved or are going to move out of the North End because of drug dealing and loud music. My neighbor’s two-year-old said, ‘Mommy, music too loud’.”
