Honestly, though, I didn't mind. It was kind of fun hearing the street getting so excited. And if you're going to live in the city, you've got to be prepared for a little noise.
However. Right now I am listening to the most terrible, terrible music imaginable, which is being blasted from halfway down the street. It's, like, 80s smooth jazz easy listening with soaring, reedy female vocalists and synthesized drumbeats, and if it continues much longer, I might just jump out of aforementioned window.
