BRIGHTON BEACH - Construction is in full swing to get Coney Island up and running in time for summer, but residents in Brighton Beach say they've had it with the 24-hour noise.

Workers are putting in new public restrooms and lifeguard stations in Coney Island to replace the ones destroyed during Sandy, but residents say the construction is going on near residential areas and the noise is unbearable.

In a statement, the Parks Department says the work is going on 24 hours a day to get the project done as quickly as possible.

Residents held a rally against the overnight construction in Brighton Beach today.
