Noise a nuisance for Verizon neighbors

Mineola neighbors of a Verizon building just over the border on Garden City Village property are at their wits' end over noise from a generator on the site.

The generator is being used as part of a construction project that began in August. Residents who live near the building say the noise has dramatically impacted their quality of life.

"I spend 10 hours a day in my bedroom which faces that on a dialysis machine," says Sue Coyne. "I'm devastated by the whole thing."

"It's like a soaring engine," says her husband Tom. "Like a space shuttle going off."

Complaints have been made to police and local officials.
