Constant Airport Noise

September 06, 1998

When my wife and I were looking for a house a year ago, we found that many of the nicer parts of Santa Monica's Sunset Park community suffered from incessant airplane noise from the adjacent Santa Monica Airport.

This ever-busier airport sends low-flying, noisy planes over the community every two minutes during the daytime and four minutes during the evening. From many backyards in Sunset Park, you can read the airplane's registration numbers; from some you can tell the brand of sunglasses the pilot is wearing.

No neighborhood is perfect, but the airplane noise issue is one that deserves a mention in any article on Sunset Park real estate.
