I found this article and thought to share itÂ as an interesting detail.
Curious what Madonna isÂ doing? Well, according to one of her neighbors she plays music too loud.
The noise coming out of neighbors' apartments will always be an issue.
I thought living next door to Madonna could be so cool...........
My word of advice: be very careful when choosing to live next door to a pop star (just kidding).
Madonna's upstairs neighbor at her Central Park West building who complained about blaring music that shook her walls and floor can proceed with claims against the pop icon and against the cooperative building's board and manager, according to a state judge.
"One of the most basic functions of a residence is to provide shelter from the outside world for its occupants to think, interact and relax in peace," Manhattan Justice Louis York wrote in George v. Board of Directors of One West 64th Street Inc., 114555-2009. "If the noise caused by Madonna's activities prevented Plaintiff from being able to use her apartment for these purposes, then the warranty of habitability has been breached."
Karen George alleged that music coming from Madonna's apartment, which was used for dance training and exercise routines, was loud enough to force her to leave several times and greatly hampered her own entertaining. Over two years, the music played for between 90 minutes to three hours a day.
She claims that in June 2008 she alerted the board and management of 1 W. 64th St. in addition to Madonna's representatives, but no one took sufficient steps to fix the problem more here
I came across this article and could not resist to share it. The numbers areÂ quite impressive....
The A-Listers: Manhattan's top agents

In March, Brown Harris Stevens broker Paula Del Nunzio put the Woolworth mansion at 4 East 80th Street on the market for $90 million. The listing -- the priciest Manhattan residential listing ever -- signaled that the era of massively expensive property sales is back, with a vengeance.
Brokers say there is more high-end product on the market than last year, and furthermore, many of these new, pricey listings are resales rather than the newly constructed condos that seemed to dominate the luxury market in Manhattan for so long. That trend is reflected in The Real Deal's annual ranking of the city's top brokers, which is based on who is marketing the most Manhattan property. For years, new condo specialists like Dolly Lenz and Ilan Bracha dominated The Real Deal's top-10 list. But this year, the top three slots were captured by Del Nunzio, Sotheby's Serena Boardman and Corcoran's Carrie Chiang, all of whom are currently marketing pricey resale mansions (click here or scroll down to see the chart).
