BROOKLYN HEIGHTS - Brooklyn Heights residents say more needs to be done to regulate all helicopter traffic, not just tourist choppers.

Residents say that between private, news agencies and the NYPD, the air traffic still continues to be an issue.

In late March, the city came to an agreement with the five Manhattan tourist helicopter operators to lessen some of the noise.

Residents are urged to call 311 and complain if any helicopters are spotted hovering over any Brooklyn neighborhoods.
