SONYC working with Downtown Brooklyn Alliance

SONYC are partnering with Downtown Brooklyn Partnership (DBP), a not-for-profit that manages three Business Improvement Districts in the area, to monitor noise pollution as part of a new “Living Lab” initiative. DBP president Regina Myrer said in a statement, “Smart city technology is making communities around the world safer, cleaner and more beautiful places to live, and the Living Lab program brings new, data-driven solutions that will improve the quality of life here in Downtown Brooklyn, and potentially to other cities.” SONYC sensors will be operating from several sites along the Fulton Mall. DBP believe that noise pollution is one of the biggest quality of life issues in neighborhoods, and the goal of the partnership is to provide data to back up the complaints.
