shattering cement
Brooklyn, NY Are construction and loud urban sounds normalized ?

Standing on the suspended M subway station platform in the late morning, I listened to these construction workers shatter cement with industrial drills. I was surrounded by a crowd of people waiting for the subway. no-one seemed to pay attention to this clearly loud noise - were they not disturbed ? have these sounds become accepted ? and would that be good or bad?

dawn in downtown Detroit
Detroit, MI at 6am city is waking up Downtown Detroit is very quite as the city currently has a small population. I noticed a flock of birds waking up across the Westin hotel. It was a wonderful surprize to be able to hear this intense chirping in the central downtown of the city.

The Camp Fire forced the evacuation of residents in Paradise as dry and high winds pushed the fire to the town causing almost homes and businesses to burn.
