We live near the BQE (Brooklyn, Queens Expressway.) It’s literally about three or four houses down—houses that are butted up right next to one another. I can see it from the front of the apartment as well as the back. During the day and often times at night, the house shakes with the passing of heavier trucks. And that’s not all we’ve noticed. It seems that some nights are louder than others. For example, Thursday late-nights, the trucks sound emptier and are therefore louder. While the house may shake less because they weigh less, they make more noise – a hollow almost guttural sound.
It’s kinda spooky.
