Depending Upon Who You Ask, Fireworks Are Protests, Noise, or Entertainment. Mostly, They Are Keeping US Awake.

Since May 2020, Boston and Mission Hill has experienced nightly fireworks starting from 8 or 9 and going until 2 in the morning.   Residents, as Community Scientists, have puled out their cellphones loaded with the NOISESCORE App to measure, map and respond to sound.  The BU Community Noise Lab has analyze the current data and presented the report of firework sound levels and Resident reactions to the Sounds of Fireworks.  The Mission Hill Health Movement encourages all residents of Mission Hill to download the NOISESCORE App and begin measuring the sounds (and fireworks!) around us.
