New York clubs are too damn loud: Lavo's the cause of hearing loss, and Bow and Finale's deafening music has provoked a new lawsuit. Residents of 199 Bowery, a luxury condo building, are rightfully annoyed that the walls of their expensive apartments are vibrating and are asking a judge to revoke the EMM Group's liquor licenses. This isn't their first complaint, and now the condominium's president, Richard Halpern, is arguing that the decibel level is four times the city limit. Plus: State law mandates that there can only be three licensed facilities within 500 feet of their building, and there are 28. For the megaclub to continue thumping, EMM must argue that it's needed in the community. Post-grads humping to piercing club music are essential to the health of the neighborhood, clearly.
