Senator Michael Gianaris, Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas, Councilman Peter Vallone and Councilman-elect Costa Constantinides joined community leaders, parents, teachers and students from PS 85Q at a rally to demand the MTA and DOE address noise problems created by passing trains.

 “Each time a student puts two fingers in the air and a lesson is put on hold, it represents the city’s failure to provide an adequate learning environment for these children. The MTA and the DOE need to do everything in their power to reduce noise for our students, and they need to do so immediately,” said Senator Gianaris.
