PARK SLOPE - Park Slope residents say they are fed up with the noise emitted from airplanes destined for LaGuardia Airport.

Jeffrey Starrin, a resident of Park Slope, says planes fly above his home until 2:00 a.m. every 60 to 120 seconds. He says sometimes he wears noise-canceling earphones to withstand the noise. According to decibel meter readings from Jan. 29, some planes reached 90 decibels which is 25 decibels higher than the safety standard.

Federal Aviation Administration flight data also reported that 52% more planes flew over Park Slope at an altitude of under 3,000 feet since 2006.
