It’s an up and coming part of Brooklyn’s waterfront, but some parents say the sound of development is driving them out.

It’s too noisy for some with all the latest construction projects, especially parents of young children who say their kids just can’t sleep.

Living at the Northside Piers condos off of Kent Ave. affords residents stunning views over the East River – but at a price.

“The pile-driving! We would wake up and hear it, it would shake our apartment,” said mother Michelle Kudrow.

Moms

Some moms are actually taking their babies blocks away in their carriages and finding cafes to sit in while the babies nap.

Kudrow has a two-year-old child and says nap time can be nearly impossible some days.

“People have been moving to the other side of the building, “ Kudrow said.

While some say it’s the price of progress other say the cost for now is their sleep.
