NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Every morning before sunrise, seven days a week, dozens of laborers arrive at a converted coal yard in the West End of New Rochelle. More than a dozen trucks, some carrying or pulling heavy construction equipment, start up, load up and drive off.

"We've been complaining about the noise, the trucks, the workers, for years," said one resident who asked not to be identified. "We've been to the City, to our Councilman, and nothing ever happens so we called Talk of the Sound."
