ISLAND PARK - Homeowners in Island Park say they are fed up with loud music coming from local establishments at all hours of the night.Patti Ambrosia says for 12 years, she has called police numerous times to complain about music emanating from Paddy McGees, Coyote Grill, Warehouse 5 and Pops Seafood Shack after hours. However, Ambrosia says her complaints have been ignored. The Nassau County Police Department says it has a special club detail assigned to the area and has responded to dozens of calls from people complaining about the music.Hempstead officials say building inspectors also have been proactively visiting Island Park clubs, and a town spokesman says he isn't aware of any problems so far this year.However, neighbors say that is just not true. In fact, some local residents say they called police this past weekend about the noise. A Hempstead Town spokesman says club owners have been required to make changes over the past two years, including moving the speakers indoors.
