quote...."But residents of Lloyd Harbor are complaining that once the technicians left, the foghorn began sounding around the clock even when there was no fog, depriving them of sleep since Friday night."

Jealous that you don't live in a 5 million dollar waterfront home. We enjoy and don't want loud noises entertering our homes, from broken down technology. Simple as that.

If it was fixed correctly it wouldn't go off 24 hours a day with no fog.

The foghorn is scaring my horses. I have to go to the east wing in order to get some quiet; the north, south and soutwest & northwest wings are unusable! I have my butler & a few maids rev the engines of my 10 cars in order to drown out that infernal foghorn racket!
Destroy all foghorns! Dont I own that water?

They turned it back on to let the helicopter pilots know they are making too much noise.

If they can fix the horn, maybe they can come by my house next and shut my wife up. If not I'm sending her to Loyd Harbor

I live on the waterfront but not in a 5 million dollar mansion. I don't have horses, a luxury car or a housekeeper. My husband needs his sleep so he can get up and catch the 5:00 AM train to Penn Station every day and work in construction. I have nothing against a foghorn if there is fog, not one that keeps going off every 10 seconds for 4 days. Shame on you who make generalizations based on zip codes.

I used to live right near that lighthouse and the foghorn was a charming thing to listen to at night. It is not that loud. The horses will get used to it and only benefit from not being jumpy around noise.Quote frankly reading your missve I think your FOS and are making your luxurious existence up. If not you certainly have enough money for ear plugs!

Jealousy is so ugly so ok if the fire alarm goes off near your house for the last five days it would be ok??

I dont think jealously is a factor. Stupidity is. I know im smart enough to not buy a 5 million dollar house next to a lighthouse.
