Officers from the Bronx's 45th Precinct discovered the van on Aug. 26.

The root of Whitestone and College Point residents’ late-night headaches was discovered in the Bronx this weekend, according to authorities.

From late Friday night, Aug. 25, into early the next morning, the Flushing-based 109th Precinct began receiving noise complaints from north Queens residents along the waterfront. Upon contacting the Bronx’s 45th Precinct, officers learned that the source of the noise was a van outfitted with large speakers playing music parked at Ferry Point Park.

Officers from the 45th Precinct arrived at the scene and put an end to the noise. There were no arrests and the vehicle was not confiscated from its owner, according to an NYPD spokesperson.

The 109th Precinct’s commanding officer, Inspector Judith Harrison, took to Twitter to thank officials at the Bronx precinct for their efforts.

Nighttime noise has long been a problem for residents of north Queens. At a We Love Whitestone Civic meeting last September, officers attributed the disruptive noise to party boats at the World’s Fair Marina and cars playing loud music parked in the lot. In May, the precinct, a local lawmaker and community members met to form a multi-step plan to combat the noise, which included noise patrols at the docks and a sound check.

In June 2016, a 47-year-old man with a van outfitted with approximately 80 speakers blaring loud music was arrested at Willets Point. The van in the latest incident was not the same one involved in the Willets Point arrest, the 109th Precinct said on Facebook.
