NOISE STUDY IN MANHATTAN, NEW YORK CITY, FOR THE EVALUATION OF DOMINANT NOISE SOURCES INCLUDING HELICOPTER TRAFFIC

In this comparison of helicopter noise with other city noise in the center of Manhattan, ten representative noise recording sites were selected to measure the helicopter noise associated with four basic flight paths into and out of the New York Airways heliport atop the Pan Am Building. At each of the ten sites, simultaneous recordings were made from two different positions, usually one at the roof of the building and one at street level. Altogether a total of 26 recording positions was used, and at each position at least two helicopter approaches and two departures were tape recorded. During the approximately 15-minute interval between helicopter operations, continuous recordings were made at each position of the other typical city noises encountered at these positions. The positions were selected to lie near the four basic flight paths.
