Dear Editor:

As a Queens resident who has had to deal with the issue of increased airplane noise in our borough, I’m writing to commend our local elected officials — specifically Reps. Steve Israel and Grace Meng, state Sen. Tony Avella and Assemblyman Edward Braunstein — for their work to curb airplane noise over our neighborhoods, and to create an Airplane Noise Community Roundtable. Their work has paid off after Gov. Cuomo recently directed the Port Authority to both monitor noise levels and form a roundtable. Increased airplane noise has been detrimental to the quality of life of so many in our community, and it’s encouraging that Queens residents will now be able to voice their concerns.
