NEW YORK (AP) - Party boats in the New York neighborhood of Brooklyn that have had residents complaining will have a curfew imposed on them in an effort to reduce noise levels.

WNBC-TV reports (https://bit.ly/2jAYZSe ) the boats at Sheepshead Bay will be required to be docked by 11 p.m. each night starting next spring. New York state Rep. Steven Cymbrowitz, a Democrat, says the curfew is the first step to cutting down on noise and pollution in the waterside neighborhood.

Resident Rich McManus says the boats can be out as late as 4 a.m.

Rojas Hendox says that boat owners are for the most part peaceful and the curfew is unfair to them.
