TBT: Noise Measurements at Idlewild

by Mary Ellen Eagan

I’ve been spending a lot of time the last few weeks thinking about evolution of noise issues at the Port Authority (of New York and New Jersey), and thought some of you might also appreciate these photos of early efforts to measure noise levels at JFK (then-Idlewild).

Group in New York discussing noise measurements of the British Comet 4 jet aircraft, August 1958.  Laymon Miller (Bob Miller’s dad) is seated at the far left; Beranek wears glasses.  John Wiley and Austin Tobin are standing second and third from the left, respectively.  The others are representatives from British Airways and the Port of New York Authority.
