Celebrating WNYC's 90th Anniversary

For 90 years, WNYC has reflected -- and reflected on -- our ever-changing city. Here are some of the sounds and voices that have defined New York and New York Public Radio since July 8, 1924.

I am an architect in New York City and I have a couple of noise stories.

I had a client whose husband was very sensitive to noise. His wife said that “he listens for noise”. There was a limit to what we could do within their apartment but they also owned some space in the cellar. So we built a sound deadened room within a room. All of the walls were spring mounted were they touched the existing structure. The door was a special very heavy insulated door that had double rubber seals all around. It worked so well that WNYC could use the room as a satellite studio.

A second client moved to the suburbs with her two very large parrots. Once again we built a sound treated room so her noisy birds would not bother her neighbors.

@eva - Sorry, the caption to that photo was not displaying for some reason. But, yes, it's an archival photo of one of WNYC's past stars.
